- While regular pencil containers and notebooks are not uncommon to see on desks, livening up your desk with a quirky Lego organizational container and an erasable notebook can add personality and promote productivity.

Work shouldn't dictate your life, but it's hard to ignore the fact that you spend 40+ hours of your week there. Keeping fun knickknacks and products at your desk can not only spark conversation with your coworkers, but can make your workspace feel more personalized and unique to your character.
If you walk through your office and look at your coworkers' desks, you'll probably see pencil holders, notebooks, and sparsely watered plants. Occasionally, you'll walk by that one "cool" coworker's desk and see Lego organizational containers, a reusable electronic notebook, and a crazy-haired Chia Pet.
