Let’s face it, there’s no shortage of office storage solutions on offer now, and these units are quick and easy to purchase.

You can get everything from space saving under-desk pedestals and multi-use cupboards to wood filing cabinets from Furniture At work and a variety of other retailers.

How effectively you use these units is another issue though. Whether you pride yourself on keeping your workspace neat and tidy, you like to let chaos reign or you’re somewhere in the middle, did you know that your approach to tidiness could be written in the stars? In its recent ‘Organised Mess’ infographic, Furniture At Work explored what the signs of the zodiac can reveal about different people’s attitudes towards keeping their work areas in check…


Messiness rules

If you’re a Gemini or an Aries, you might struggle to control the clutter in your office. These star signs like to let disorder rule, so you may often find your desk is submerged under piles of paperwork. Similarly, for Aquarians and Leos, it’s all about fun first and tidying later (maybe).

Organised hoarding

For Scorpios and Sagittarians, it’s a different story. People with these star signs like to keep things in good order, but they also have a bit of a tendency to hoard. So, while their filers, shelves and cupboards may look sensibly arranged, the chances are half of the documents and other items aren’t actually needed.

Librans and Cancerians take satisfaction in organising their office essentials, but not necessarily in the most logical or practical way. They prioritise aesthetics and like their organising to look effortless, so they’re more likely to colour code their files than to arrange them alphabetically.

A place for everything

The star signs of Virgos and Taurus are leaders of the pack in terms of tidiness. Efficiency is key for these people and they live by the mantra ‘a place for everything and everything in its place’.

Pisceans and Capricorns aren’t far behind. They also love to keep their workplace bits and pieces in check at all times. However, to save themselves the effort, they’re more likely to get an intern to do the organising on their behalf.

No matter what your zodiac sign suggests about you, it’s useful to make an effort to keep your workspace neat and tidy. This can help you to control your stress levels and make you more productive.
