Clean That Desk Up!

If you have a messy desk, the first step is probably the easiest: remove everything off the top of your desk. Remove your computer, lamp, pictures, phone and the three week old coffee mug you’ve been hanging on to. From here you need to decide on which items you use the most. It’s probably going to be pens, a notebook, a stapler and maybe even hand sanitizer. Place these items in a drawer you can easily reach.

After you’ve cleaned the top of your desk, add those necessary items, and only necessary items. If you have too much stuff on your desk it will look cluttered. Here is where you should add; your computer monitor, lamp and maybe a clock. For those papers that you absolutely need to have on your desk, you can try adding a basket to the edge of your work space. But make sure to keep these papers in the basket and not on your desk.

Sometimes we carry a lot of unnecessary items on our desks. Use a filing cabinet that is in the corner of your space for storing of these unnecessary files, records and scraps of paper. They’ll be easy enough to get to if you need them.

A cluttered, unorganized desk can reduce your energy and make you less productive. With our tips above, you can be sure that your work space will be cleaner and you’ll be more organized to continue to meet your resolutions of staying more organized at work.
