Take Some Time At the End of Your Day
If you neglect cleaning your area, you’re likely going to experience the snowball effect. Things will keep adding up and the clutter and messes will get so bad that you won’t even want to attempt the clean-up. This is really easy to prevent. Simply take five minutes at the end of your workday in order to throw away any trash and unnecessary items, and organize it the way you like it. This means that when you come in the following day, you’ll be ready to get to work and not take time out of your morning trying to get everything straightened out.
Have Cleaning Products Handy
You don’t have to worry about cleaning too much since you’ll be able to rely on us for that, but it’s inevitable that messes are going to occur during the day when we’re not around. If you have an office drawer or an area to store items, we suggest putting a few cleaning products in there. Some recommendations would be microfiber cleaning cloths, wipes, antibacterial spray, and an air duster can to blow out all of the crumbs and other debris that gets in between the keys of your keyboard. Also, make sure that you have some glass and all-surface cleaners.
Get Rid of Things
There are likely some items on your desk that are trash or that never get used anymore. It’s okay, we all do it. Go through everything that you have on your desk and in your drawers and get rid of it or donate! This will clear up a lot of space as well as help you with organization.
Speaking of organization, have your workspace set up in a way that is optimal for you to do your job efficiently. Get containers for all of your loose items such as pens, clips, office supplies, and the like. You can also keep your drawers organized by using dividers and being sure not to just throw random items in there. Another great tip for organizing your area is using labels so that things don’t get mixed in with each other.
Make It Nice
Since you spend so much time in your office, why not make it a place that you're comfortable in and reflects your personal taste? Obviously, pictures of your loved ones, whether it be family, friends, or pets are a must in your office. But also consider getting a nice little office plant or two. If you want to bring some life into your workspace, they now sell enclosed ecosphere globes that contain live marine shrimp. These make great office decorations! Every person is unique, so really the decorating is completely up to you! Whatever makes you feel comfortable. When you enjoy your surroundings, this will help you not only enjoy work a little more but get more stuff done as well.
While office decorations are a great addition, just make sure not to overdo it. You don’t want your desk and the surrounding area to be covered in random trinkets and assorted items. We’re trying to declutter, not add more to it! You want things organized and set up in a way that provides you with space to get your work done. Another helpful tip is to look around your office and try and figure out if you can rearrange the area in a way that will be more beneficial for you. If you have a large office, set up zones for specific tasks. Also, a good rule of thumb to follow is to have items that you use the most should be the closest to you and your desk.
