Declutter Your Office Before the New Year - Tips From SERVPRO of Gresham to Get Organized!
Does your Multnomah County Office need some sprucing up? Here are a few tips to get you started!
- Get rid of what you don't need. We tend to think everything is important and needs to be kept. Go through all your stuff and ask yourself: Does this item have unnecessary multiples? Does it have a purpose? Is it outdated? Did you even remember you had it before you started your cleaning? Do you really need it?
- Add more storage. Whether it's a shelving system or a filing cabinet, adding more storage to your office will give everything a place to go. Don't go overboard or else you might end up with even more clutter!
- Make sure everything has a place. If things don't have a place to go, they will likely end up cluttering up your desk.
- Address your problem areas. Everyone has that drawer full of random stuff that has no where to go. Organize it by putting things in a more permanent home and adding some drawer dividers.
- Hide your cables. Cables are often a huge source of office clutter. Get rid of the problem by adding a cable box, zip tie your cords together, hide them with cord concealers and hide them behind a desk or other furniture when you can.
- File paperwork daily. How many times have you walked in to an office and to see stacks of un filed paperwork all over? It looks horrible and makes it hard to find anything. Make sure to file away paperwork every day to avoid this.
- Sort your desktop icons. Digital clutter can be just as bad as real life clutter. Put all the extra documents and pictures on your desktop into a folder. Put everything you don't need anymore into the "trash".
- Disinfect and and clean. With all the stuff we have to get done in a day, it's easy to forget about something like disinfecting your office. Do it yourself or hire a professional to get rid of those lingering germs!
