If your home office is messy and unorganised, it can be difficult to work in. To maximise productivity and ensure that you’re always working to the best of your ability, it’s essential that your home office is decluttered, tidy and clean – after all, they do say that a tidy room equals a tidy mind. Follow our top tips below to keep your home office organised.
Get rid of unnecessary items
The truth is, you don’t need 30 different pens, seven notepads and six different staplers. Take the time to go through your office and throw away any unnecessary items. If you haven’t used something in your office in the last year or two, the chances are, you won’t need it anytime soon. Clearing out your office will free up space and make it look less cluttered.
Keep your desk clear
Your desk is where you sit to do your work and therefore it’s important that this space is clear and tidy. If it’s piled high with paperwork, magazines, notepads and stationery, it can easily distract you from the task at hand. Investing in a desk organiser is a great way to keep things organised and is perfect for stashing odd bits and bobs that can otherwise end up strewn over your desk.
Invest in smart storage
Without the correct storage solutions, your office can quickly become overloaded with paperwork and stationery. Invest in some smart storage solutions, such as filing cabinets, shelving, file racks or a desk with built in storage to keep on top of your work and reduce clutter.
Keep on top of your bulletin board
It’s important that you regularly clear your bulletin board to ensure that you stay as organised as possible. Bulletin boards are handy for keeping important documents, dates and post-it notes in plain sight, and are also the perfect place to keep to-do lists. Bulletin boards can easily become cluttered with old notes and documents, so take the time at the end of each week to take down any notes that are no longer relevant.
