Storage Corner | November 1, 2023 @ 12:00 AM

Is your office or desk space a cluttered mess?

Are you finding it hard to be productive or get things done just because you can’t find your tools?

We have all been there, but don’t worry, you don’t have to stay there! Keep your desk/office clean and organized with these 5 desk organizing tips.

Divide Up Your Desk Drawers 🗂

Simple-yet-powerful rule: each drawer must serve a different function.

Try to assign a function to each drawer on your desk.

For example, the top drawer can be for tape, pens, hand lotion, and other similar items, the one below can be for notebooks, papers, books, and another for things such as tissues, USBs, adapters, and other things.

Extra tips: Use trays of different sizes to help you see and organize better and also, only use the top drawers for frequently used items.

Take Charge of Paper Clutter 📄

We all know how easy it is to let papers pile up in your desk. Take control of the clutter before it takes over your space.

Go through every piece of paper in your office by using a simple system: shred/toss it, file it or take action from it.

Wrap Your Cords 🔌

This is a bit challenging but at the same time, one of the most rewarding when seeing the results of the effort you put into it!

Velcro cable ties are very helpful in keeping long wires tucked away. Remember to keep cords and chargers neatly tucked away in a drawer when not in use.

You can loop them and hold them using zip ties or reusable little cable ties. You might as well use colorful cable ties to keep your wires in place and easy to find.

Get used to labeling everything 🏷

OK, here’s a tricky one: labeling drawers or cabinets will not only save you time and frustration but will limit the number of interruptions you get during the day.

Adding labels to the boxes, baskets, and binders in your home/office is important because it keeps things looking, it also makes it easy to find the items you’re looking for, and finally, it allows you to quickly pick up after yourself and return items to their assigned place.

Set time aside to declutter 📅

Listen, no matter how clearly you label things or have a dedicated space for each and every item, things are going to get moved around or misplaced during a busy workday.

The simple fact is that organizing an office space takes time.

Just make sure to set an alarm or event in your calendar (30 min to 1 hour a week) to keep everything organized and clean.

We hope you find these tips useful to make your desk and office organizing easier and more relaxing.
