7 tricks to organize your office right now

Print on Demand

1.  Clean off your desktop to allow yourself adequate work space. Remove personal items to a bookshelf or wall. Consider moving your computer to a desk or cart.

2.  Set up a system to sort incoming paper (a file box or folders) labeled “to do,” “urgent,” “refer,” “consider,” “pay,” and “file.”

3.  Keep a shredder and recycling bin nearby. As you go through your inbox, shred, recycle, and sort into your system.

4.  Throw everything you need to read into a box. Grab a few articles to take with you whenever you leave your office.

5.  Use cutlery holders or small plastic containers to sort office supply items in a drawer. Keep only enough for a week or two. Place backups in a storage cabinet.

6.  Use tubs or tote bags as project files.

7.  Make a list of your files and post it on your filing cabinet for quicker retrieval of files. Analyze and consolidate items on your list before organizing the actual files.
