Top 4 Tips to Organizing Your Desk

We talked a lot about organizing and de-cluttering your home. This week, we wanted to focus on your office and more importantly organizing your desk. Your desk is the place where you spend most of your time at work. An unorganized and cluttered desk can leave you feeling frustrated. So below are 4 quick tips on how to de-clutter and maintain an organized desk!

1. Get rid of the pens and pencils you don’t need. We all like to have a stash of pens and pencils (some that don’t even work anymore). Instead of letting them pile up all over your desk, throw away the ones that are broken, you don’t use or you just don’t need. Don’t feel bad, it’s just clutter!

2. Keep a notepad near your phone. During the day, I’m sure you get calls with telephone numbers, names of people you need to contact, email addresses, etc. If you have one notebook dedicated just for phone calls, all of that information will be in one organized place rather than scattered around your desk on scraps of paper.

3. Organize based on frequency of use. If you use something everyday it’s common sense to have it closer to you then something you use once a month. Instead of organizing your desk based on how it looks, organize it based on what you use. This cuts down on the time you spend searching for things you need around your desk on a daily basis. Now, they’ll just be right in front of your nose!

4. Spend a few minutes at the end of your day re-organizing and preparing for tomorrow. If you know the first thing you need to do the next day is to send a fax, then set it out on your desk so you’re ready to go. If you spend a few minutes at the end of each day organizing and preparing, you will start each morning off on the right foot!
