On the other side of my desk I keep some of my resource books, along with supplies I need quickly. This side also has stacking trays and a plastic basket on the wall where I keep extra notepads. Our sales reps bring us notepads all the time; this is where they go.
I know, I know. My computer monitor is huge. However, it works perfectly and to get a flat screen size monitor at this size would mean unnecessary dollars. Instead I used a Lazy Susan meant for televisions to get it up off my desk so that my laptop can sit docked underneath. When I need to take my laptop with me I just slide it out and un-dock it. (You know you love my mouse pad. Go Braves!)
