Office Overhaul - Help!!

What was once my "refuge" (my office) is now a room I practically avoid. As you will see in these pictures, it is a disaster area. I am typically VERY organized and must have things in their place...which is very likely the reason I am avoiding this room. I cannot find a good (functional) spot for everything and in particular, I cannot find a good placement for my computer. 

I previously had the computer standing up but I can't really put it up against the wall because of the way the CD door opens. There are also 2 USB ports in front which need to be accessible ALL.THE.TIME. Additionally the desk is not deep enough for it to be standing up next to the monitor and not take up a TON of space. 

Maybe there is nothing that can be done (without changing out the desk) and I just have to deal. I dunno. Suggestions?

And getting a different desk is not an option...I wanted this desk set for eons and got it back in 2007 and while it's from Pottery Barn and I thought it would be the ULTIMATE is not. If I had it to do over again, I don't think I would get the corner desk version OR the hutch...I miss my wall space and the fun bulletin board I would hang in front of my desk.

Sorry for the cruddy pictures, they are iPhone pics...for speed, ease and simply because I am lazy.

That is a really cute desk. I have a corner-fitted desk too, but it's more of an open design. I'm looking forward to the day that I have a room that I can make an office-only space!

Wow your "disaster" looks positively neat next to my own disaster. :) I don't dare post a picture of the mess that is my office someone might nominate me for Clean Sweep or worse Hoarders! LOL
