Intelligent Ways to Organize and Clean Your Office
Any office is bound to end up messy with piles of papers everywhere, combined with knickknacks long forgotten and a whole lot of stains and crumbs from snacking on desks and by the computers.
Below are 5 intelligent ways for you to organize and clean your office area.
- File Papers as You Go.
Are you sick and tired of seeing papers everywhere and wasting time sorting them out? Make sure to process and file them as they come and as you go. Decide if a document or letter should be thrown out, kept for later, or given immediate attention. Place it in the appropriate tray or if not needed anymore, in the shredder.
- Always Use Organizers.
There are plenty of small and big organizers that you can utilize for desktops, drawers, and cabinets. They serve different purposes too and cater to varying items. Make it a habit to use them to help de-clutter your space so that you can find things easier. Such tips will help you get more done.
- Position Items Strategically.
Decide which items you often use and those you hardly need. Position and store them strategically so that supplies that are not utilized daily don’t take up space and add clutter. They can be kept somewhere farther so you can keep the most important ones that you use every day close to you.
- Only Eat at the Snack Area.
One common problem that many office workers experience is the presence of stains and crumbs on tables, chairs, computers, and cabinets. They may not be noticeable at first, but they can make the office dirtier each day and even bring in an army of insects. Hence, no matter how busy you are, make it a point to eat and drink only at the designated snack area.
- Have Cleaning Materials Handy.
There are specialized cleaning materials used for computer screens and keyboards which often suffer from food debris and drink spills. Make sure you have them within reach at all times, along with those for wiping your table clean and sometimes even cleaning the windows with. A portable broom, a cleaning spray, a couple of small cloths, and a miniature vacuum will do you well.
