If you can use these, you can then put the items in your desk drawer when you aren’t using them. Then you have no clutter from cords, and no clutter from they keyboard or mouse itself.
A good old fashioned pencil cup works wonders for getting accessories under control. Keep your pencils and pens you use regularly in the cup. The rest should be put away in a drawer. Digital media (DVDs, CDs) should be put up in a storage container such as a notebook media organizer.
Photos can be desk clutter too if they are handled incorrectly. Be sure to limit the number you display. Put out only one, or else group all photos together in a photo cube or collage frame.
