The new year is here, and with it comes an opportunity to start off with a clean slate - by organizing and de-cluttering your workspace!

How to Clean Off Your Desk 

clean desk tips

Whether you have an office, a cubicle or work from home, here are some suggestions for maintaining a clean and organized desk:
  1. Gather paperwork that has piled up and organize or purge as necessary. Remember to shred any sensitive information that you are discarding!
  2. Take inventory of office supplies you’ve accumulated. Give any pens, notepads, scissors, etc. that you have an excess of to your co-workers or place these items back in your office supply closet.
  3. Make labels for files and drawers. Having designated areas for certain types of paperwork or for items like office supplies, your cell phone, etc. helps keep things right in their place.
  4. Keep cleaning supplies at your desk. This helps ensure your workspace is clean (and disinfected, especially during flu season), and allows you to clean up spills and crumbs from food or drinks enjoyed at your desk throughout the day.
  5. Don’t forget about your other desktop. We’re talking about the one on your computer! Use a dropbox or cloud-based storage to stow away important files that aren’t immediately needed. 

Having a neat and organized workplace will help you function more efficiently and offer you sense of tranquility in the workplace.
