What a mess! – Tips on organizing your workspace.

If you knew how much time a disorganized office cost you, you would make the time to clean it up!

Shuffling piles and moving stuff around does not count as organization, either does hiding it in a drawer. 

A neat and orderly office space increases productivity and wastes less time. 

Throw it out! – Get rid of anything you do not want or need. If you have not used it in over 6 months, chances are you won’t, so get rid of it. 

Designate work areas – Decide what tasks you will be doing in each area of the office. Make a spot for each. 

Sort – Gather all the items that are not in the correct spot and put them where they should be. 

Placement- Make sure to place supplies and equipment that you use most frequently in close proximity to your work area.

Paperless –  Get rid of as many hard copies as you can. Store files digitally. Get inexpensive storage boxes for files that you no longer use and archive them. Create a ” To file” folder and make sure to file weekly.

Clean off your desk – Take all items off your desk, clean it thoroughly, and only put back essential items. Use desktop organizers and containers for smaller items. 

De-clutter your drawers – Use drawer organizers for your office supplies and items you need on hand. 

Start fresh – At the end of the day make sure to straighten up and de-clutter so you can have a fresh start the next day.
