Spring Clean Your Desk

April 30, 2014

Many of us spend 30-40 hours every week in our office. So, it’s important to have a space where you can feel comfortable and productive. Here are some of the best tips to help you spring clean your desk.

Divide your desk into sections. Have a workspace for your computer, library area for research, storage area, supplies, and filing.

Rid your desk of visual clutter. Only keep essential items in arms reach. For most of us that means a monitor, keyboard, telephone, two pens, a notebook, and a family picture. Everything else can go into it’s specified section.

Hang coat/purse hooks. Personal items will often overwhelm your space if you don’t have a specified place to put them.

Sort your junk drawer. Most people have that one drawer in their desk where they throw everything to keep items out of site. After time you become anxious opening the drawer and you also don’t know what’s in it.

Disinfect regularly. Even if you are neat you still need to remove the dust, food, and fingerprints from your desk on a regular basis. This habit will also force you to tidy loose papers and trash that is sitting around.

Extras Checklist:

Empty the trash and recycling containers, wipe them with a damp cloth.

Restock any office supplies you are running low on

Change up your decorations or add a few

Bring a small plant or terrarium to “green up” your workspace
