Organising a workspace is a task and a half plus the need for it to be aesthetically pleasing makes it even more difficult. Beck Wadworth is the queen of organisation producing her own line of gorgeous stationary and we caught up with to quiz her about her top tips for keeping a workspace organised.

Describe your personal workspace. What would we find on the desk?
I always go with monochrome and neutrals when it comes to my workspace – I love to keep thing minimalistic and add a touch of colour with succulents & plants as well as texture with a bit of marble. Personally, I can’t live without my 2015 An Organised Life diary and to do list notebook. A pen, pencil, highlighters, stapler, ruler, calculator, scissors, a marble pen holder, a pin board to hold all your inspo and reminders, black Muji folders for filing, a plain black box for holding invoices, a succulent and a MAC computer of course!

What are 3 of your must-have desk essentials for keeping organised? 
A Diary, Highlighters and a strategic filling system.

What are your top tips for creating an aesthetically pleasing space that’s also super functional? 
1. FILLING: Create a strategy for your filing that works for you and stick to it. For example all my receipts are stored in months and all my wholesale orders are stored in alphabetical order.

 

2.FUNCTION: When decorating your desk use pieces that also have a function. One of my favourite desk accessories is a white pin board that I have all my inspo on as well as invites & reminders, another favourite is a beautiful marble vase that can be used as a pen/pencil holder as well.

 

 3. BOXES: Everything on your desk needs a home. I always store my invoices & bills that need to be paid that week in a black box on my desk – they are really easy to access and it keeps everything organised.
 
4. DE-CLUTTER:  Get rid of anything and everything you do not need! And at the end of each day make sure you re-organise your space, so its nice and fresh in the morning.

Do you have any tips for us busy ladies who want to stick to a planner but also keep it looking neat? 
1. ROUTINE: Everyones different, you need to find your own vibe when its comes to making the most out of your diary or planner. For me I always check my diary the night before so I can prep for the next day (including what my outfits going to be!).

2. ALWAYS WRITE IN PENCIL: One thing I have learnt is that life always throws you curve balls, dates change and priorities shift. I HATE having to cross out something in my diary and creating a messy page! The answer – write in pencil! That way dates, meetings and important deadlines can easily be altered! Don’t get me wrong I love pen – but date wise, pencil is always key.

 

3. PRIORITISE: Creating your own strategy for prioritising your work each day is key. For me I use a highlighting system at work. For example pink are my priorities for the morning, blue are my priorities for the afternoon & green are extremely important dates, meetings or reminders. I use this system everyday and it helps me get through all of my list. Another option (if you’re like me and hate adding colour to your 2015 diary) is using the same method above but with symbols. For example a small black dot, a star and the letters IMP for important or simply AM, PM & a star symbol.

  • Great tips! I’m horrible at using my planner–the pencil tip is one I must begin to use. There are so many cross outs and it makes me so frustrated to see my pretty planner becoming victim to date and time changes!
