Even if you’ve never owned a wooden drawing mannequin, we’re pretty sure you’ve seen one before. These figures with movable limbs are generally used as refrence tools for drawing the human form and poses, but they can be surprisingly useful when it comes to decluttering and organizing your desk too! Check out what these Twitter users have been using their drawing mannequins for!

I’m not the neatest person around; my desk is usually littered with stationery, manga, and accessories I use around the computer, such as charging cables, thumb drives and earphones. While I do enjoy an organized mess, I get occasionally annoyed when I can’t find something at the moment I need it. If you’re in the same predicament as I am, a wooden mannequin could possibly be the perfect addition to your little mess!

▼ Hold anything that comes in rolls: Masking tape, scotch tape, ribbons, etc.



▼ Wristbands from conventions, theme parks, live concerts… all those memories!

▼ He’ll take good care of your glasses.


▼ Stationery getting the royal treatment


▼ These figures simply light up the room.


▼ For the fashionistas


▼ Because fandom related merchandise needs to be visible at all times.


There are many products designed to keep things neat and organized, but speaking from personal experience, if you’re someone who feels more comfortable working with some clutter around, no rack, drawer or box is going to solve the messiness issue because it’s just too much of a hassle to have to pull open a drawer and peer into its dark abyss to search for something.

The drawing mannequins, however, seem to do a neat job of keeping the clutter in one place while leaving the objects within sight and reach. They also add character and liveliness to the desk, and they’re usually quite affordable. As you can tell, I’m totally sold.
