You can’t always rely on your janitorial staff to clean your personal desk – besides, you also don’t want them to accidentally throw away important files now, right? It’s easy to work more effectively and efficiently if everything is dustless, spotless, and organised. While of course, you can’t really annoy the janitorial staff, you can always rely on these nifty gadgets you can stow away in your drawers. Some might be already well-known, but others are definitely a breath of fresh air.
