Embracing Minimalism With A Desktop Office Organizer
If you’ve been following my blog, you know I do not write reviews. Why not?
I am picky.
Picky, picky, picky about items I endorse. It takes a lot to impress me. 🙂
This month, I will review great products I love. Yes, I said love. I would never bother writing a review for a product I disliked, or for a product I would not purchase or use myself.
Sponsored posts? I would only accept it if I believed in the company and its products.
My review would also only be my honest opinion on the product. I like taking the direct, honest approach to anything and everything I do.
Too many bloggers out there are reviewing anything and everything. Hey, not judging. That might work for them, for whatever reasons, personal, financial, etc. All I am saying is that’s not for me.
That said, I received a free gift from Red Candy in exchange for writing a review on my blog.
Do I need to remind you that all opinions are entirely my own? LOL. Didn’t think so.
So, now that that’s clear, let me get back to my review. 🙂
As a busy bee and now a first-time mom, I am an organizer extraordinaire!
I love to organize, plan and make things happen. I cannot work in a disorganized space! It makes my head spin.
I wrote a post about decluttering your digital world. Living in a clutter free world allows you increased productivity, more free time in your day and gives you a sense of freedom. Clutter free need not stop in the four walls of your home.
Your office space should be clutter free as well so you can make the most of your work day without feeling unnecessary overwhelm.
So imagine my delight when Red Candy offered to send me my choice of any of their quirky homeware products.
I decided on two products I knew would fit in great in my home and office.
The Cactus Desktop Office Organizer (of course lol) and the Papa Peropon Drinking Animal Planter – Cat.
I had the perfect plant for the animal planter, but unfortunately the planter was out of stock. As soon as it is back in July, it will be sent over. Yayyy!
A week after talking to the rep from Red Candy, I came home from work and the package from the UK had arrived! Yayyyy!!! My desktop office organizer was here. Yup, it’s those little things in life that make me happy.
The box was nicely packaged….
Not a large box so easy to move about or wrap as a gift…
Here it is when opened….
You know how your desk can get messy and chaotic with lots of little bits and pieces such as paper clips, staples, coins etc?
Well you can tidy those away with the cactus desktop office organizer.
Plus point? The arms are magnetic so just tidy away those little items like I have.
How cute is this?
Cactus not your style? Get the pineapple version in green or pink!
I love having colour in my office, so come to think of it, I should have gotten the pineapple for myself too.
Two of these is definitely better than one as you can keep pens and pencils in one, and higlighters and markers in the other.
If you are into colourful vibrant quirky products for your home and/or office, check out the rest of the home office accessories. I am sure you will find something you can put to good use. There are great items for everyone.
I have embraced a minimalist lifestyle so these products fit right into my minimalist interior and decor.'Minimalism is living with what you need and what you love. That's it. 'Click To Tweet
If organization and stationery are not your thing, gift this to someone who would appreciate it.
To top it all off? The prices are absolutely amazing and affordable!
Need fast shipping? Orders placed before 1pm on a working day are dispatched on the same day. Orders placed after 1pm, or on weekends, are dispatched the following working day. What more could you ask for?
You can view the full range of desktop organizers available on the Red Candy website.

What a cute organizer! I need something like this for my desk. I am forever losing pens and pencils and my kids take them often when just laying around this would nip that very quickly!
This is something you don’t see everyday!! Suppose its a different way to keep your pens and clips tidy!!
Oh, my! That just has to be the cutest pen pot ever! We love anything cactus related so I’m definitely going to have to pick one up for my daughters birthday this year 🙂
I’m a sucker for quirky and practical office supplies. I feel like they say so much about a person and allow you to show off your style while also keeping everything organized.
The holder is cute!! I’d use that and the pineapple one. I like having an organized desktop.
I love the cactus and would probably want the pineapple for myself too. It is so smart that the arms are magnetic.
The cactus pen holder is so bright. It will definitely add a personality to your table and looks nice too!.
This is such a cute desk organiser! I love RedCandy – I have a few things from them and they have such a quirky range! It’s a shame they are not being advertised as much as some of their competitors, I wish lots of people knew about them haha!
I am so glad you like them too Tereza. I saw something on there yesterday that I liked. I keep finding new things. 🙂
You are right about them not being “out there” enough. I think if more people knew about them, they would love the items available. Hopefully this post will help do that.
I love desk organizers especially if they’re this cute. Nice to know that aside from the cactus, there are other designs to choose from.
That’s just awesome. I love that it looks adorable as well! It would be a nice addition to any desk for sure! I SO would love to see the other designs!
That cactus organizer is seriously the cutest (and most functional) desk accessory!! I want it for me!!
That cactus is EVERYTHING!! I’m all for less is more! This inspired me to revamp my own work station. Thanks
I love the planter book ends! That is something I would totally get if I had the right type of shelve! I have the same review policy. I must love it before I review it. Unless it’s a book
Cool tips! I do not know how my desk gets cluttered in a few days. Your tips will be helpful.
It doesn’t take much for my office desk to get messy either! I can definitely make use of these tips! Love that cactus organizer!
This is super cute! I’m totally digging the lego storage though…they always find there way all over the floor.
You are a amazing writer. You manage both blogging n family. Like the idea of being choosy
I need to get my desk to together. I have bullet journey pens all over my desk.
This is too cute! I love that it’s a cactus. I need something like this for all my pens. I am not a minimalist, but I still try to stay as organized as I can.
Hi Amber, yes it is so cute and will organize your desk quickly. I love that they are the perfect size and do not take up too much space.
The organizer is super cute! I am also a lover of all things organized so I love how minimal and organized it is!

This little organizer is so sweet! I love how cute it is and the magnetic portions for paperclips.
Yes Emily, I hate how paper clips get all mixed up and scattered all over my desk. This little cactus makes it so easy to keep all the little bits and bobs in one place.
