Have you started your home spring cleaning checklist? The weather is warming up and we know that everyone is itching for spring! Spring is a great time to get out and enjoy the fresh air, and it’s also the time where we start to clean out our spaces. At work, spring cleaning is usually left for another crew, but what about organizing? This month, follow these easy steps to organize your workspace.
Get Rid of Junk
Do you have a lot of unused items and knick-knacks sitting on your desk? We don’t want you to get rid of the quirks that make your space your own, but if there are items that you haven’t used in over 6 months and you’re not quite sure when you’re going to use them again, it might be a good idea to clear it all away.
Clearing stuff off the floor and away from your feet will make you feel less cluttered. Vertical shelves, wall baskets, wall-mounted or magnetic file holders and hooks are perfect for organizing.
Labeling is the key to creating an organized system. It increases your effectiveness at work, and keeps everything organized for others who function within your workspace. Label the placement of items and take the time to label boxes and bins on shelves.
Dry Erase Boards
Do you have a lot of notes all over your desk? How about a daily to-do list? Placing a dry erase board at your desk will help you keep notes and lists all in one spot. Plus, it saves paper!
Prepare for the Next Day
Spend some time at the end of your day getting your desk in order. It will help you get everything together for the next day and give you a chance to make sure you’ve completed all the tasks that needed to be finished by the end of the day.
