Spring is right around the corner, and you are probably already dreading all the cleaning you are going to have to do around the house. To add insult to injury, it may be time for you to do the same thing in your office at work. Papers and trash get piled in offices all the time, and they can be overwhelming if you don’t clean on a regular basis. That is what spring cleaning is for. It gives you a chance to thoroughly organize your office so you can use it more effectively in the future. With some desk organizers and a little bit of time, you can get your office as spiffy as can be. Here are some tips to help you do just that.
It is common to keep pieces of paper around because you think you will use them in the near future, but when that time never comes, you just end up with a lot of paper cluttering the office. Rather than allowing your office to become overrun by these papers, you need to recycle anything you can. Check the dates on receipts, notes, letters, and more and see if you actually need to keep them. If not, shred or recycle them so you no longer have to see them in your office.
Scan Important Papers
If you are worried about possibly losing something you have printed on paper, you should scan it into the computer for safe keeping. Then if you need to print it off in the future, you can just load the printer with some loose paper and get a new copy. Unless you have to keep an original of a document, there is no reason to keep a hardcopy of it.
Gather Your Supplies
Try to get all of your office supplies in one general area, rather than having them scattered all over the office. You can put them in an organizer on your desk or you can put them in a drawer somewhere. As long as you can use them the way you need to, you should be fine. Make an effort to reduce the amount of supplies that you have lying on the desks and you should be on your way to a clean office in no time.
