How do I keep my desk from being so cluttered?

A file jacket for everything

When I work, I never know when a client is going to call to ask about a project I'm not currently working on. Hence, my desk tends from order to disorder throughout the day. The solution, I've found, is to keep each project has a separate file jacket. At the end of the day, I put all my work files back into those job jackets, (even though I work on multiple projects at odd times throughout the day). That way, I get the feeling of "starting fresh" each day, without all the desk clutter.
