If you're not careful, a home office can turn into a hot mess. It happens. If you take a weekend and plow through all the crap now, you'll be organized and waste less time looking for things like important bills and people's contact information.

Bethenny has several suggestions for keeping your desk neat - including the following rules:
  • No piles! Clean and organize as you go, and you won't waste time digging through papers to find what you need.
  • Group together things that are alike. Bills in one place, business cards in another, paper clips in their own dish, etc.
  • If a task is urgent, keep a reminder in your line of vision, like sticking a Post-It to the side of your computer monitor.

Make it fun! We found these adorable tools that'll help you keep your desk neat and organized:
