Clean floor around desk

Move your chair so it's out of the way and you can see where everything is.
Pick up dishes (plates, pots, bowls, glasses, cups, mugs, spoons, knives, forks, etc) from off the floor near the desk.
Take as many dishes as you can safely to the kitchen and put them into the dishwasher, into the sink or onto a counter.
Repeat until there are no more dishes.
Pick up all disposable plastic bottles and put them in the recycling bin.
Pick up all pieces of paper, one at a time.
If the paper is trash, throw it in the recycling bin.
If you want to keep the paper, put it in a pile.
Throw out bits of food that are not longer good and garbage.
Pick up all clothes that are on the floor near the desk and put them in the hamper.
Pick up all books that are on the floor near the desk and put them on a bookshelf.
Pick up anything else that is on the floor and find a home for it.
If the floor under your desk still looks dirty, try vacuuming or sweeping it.
