I have a GeekDesk that I love, but I am terrible at organizing everything I work with on my desk. Can you make any recommendations for paper organizers? Desk sets? Anything else that would come to mind? What about storage underneath a desk (the GeekDesk has no built in storage, but I am sure I could add something).

I realized that without clarification this is a pretty useless question.

My desk currently consists of a monitor, a laptop that connects to the monitor, and speakers. What tends to happen is I end with a mass of paper (I've never been great at paper management/file storage) that covers my desk discouraging me from working there. Additionally, I think I need a monitor stand so as to reclaim some of the usable space that it now occupies.

I am also just curious to see how other people tackle the problem.

I think an RSS subscription to Unclutterer would both inspire, and give you great ideas.

One step short of a file cabinet is a collection of magazine files into which cut-down and labeled end tab folders of varying thickness containing papers can be neatly stored. Bonus: Papers on a topic can be easily transported to a conference, informal pow-wow, etc.
