DIY Cleaning and Organization Tips
Cut the Clutter
Yes, we’re talking about all those useless, non-work related items just cluttering up your computer desk. Throw away the rubbish and find appropriate places to store the rest. It’s also likely that you have too many duplicate items crowding up your desk and that needs to change. For example, you don’t need a penholder with various pens and pencils; just two of each is enough. So, be wise when cutting clutter; you’ll be relieved with the extra breathing space!
Minimize Box Files/Folders
While they’re great for keeping your paperwork organized, the more box files and folders you have on your desk, the more likely you are to collect and pile up on papers. If you go to a single folder, chances are you’ll find papers stuffed inside that you longer need (or never did). The key here is to keep a minimum number of folders/files to accommodate relevant paperwork and nothing more!
Keep a Trash Can Nearby
We often avoid throwing papers or trash away because there’s no place to throw it! This is why it’s important to have a bin within reach so that you don’t end up cluttering your computer desk with rubbish. It also motivates you to dispose of unwanted papers, broken pencils, and other useless items, right away.
By this we mean keeping items in their respective places. When working at your desk or on your computer, it’s natural to pull things out or move them out of place, but getting into the habit of putting them back will be the difference between a messy desk and an organized one. It’s simple organization tips with an everlasting effect!
Call it a Day with a Clean!
When you’re done for the day with work, clean your desk. The minimal number of items on your computer table will make cleaning ten times easier! Similarly, if you stick to daily cleaning, it will only take a few minutes to tidy up. Keep your cleaning tools nearby so that you don’t waste any time or have a reason to skip the all-important tip #5!
