How To Declutter Your Office

Monday, June 27, 2022


Whether you work from home or in an actual office, your workspace can get very cluttered and overwhelming and that can affect your ability to do your job effectively.  Tidying and decluttering your workspace whether it's office work, crafting, or whatever you do for work, can be very rewarding. Here's how to get started!

Remove everything
Make piles and categorize groups of things. Empty drawers and try to keep some type of organization with it.  All writing utensils shoul d be grouped, paperwork, or whatever else you have in your own workspace or office.  You need to see everything you have. 
Once you have finished that, now you can go through and get rid of what you don't need anymore whether it's shredding old paperwork, getting rid of pens that are dried out, or getting rid of excess decor items.  
Now you want to categorize and group things together.  All equipment for a certain task should go together so that it makes it easier to find what you need as you work without having to waste time and lose your mental focus because you have to root around to find one simple little thing.  
Clean your Space
Make sure you tidy and clean your office or work area.  Get rid of the dust, dirt, grime, and trash.  You want to start fresh and move your items back into a nice clean area. 
Put Away
Now you can put everything back in an orderly fashion.  Find creative ways to store things by utilizing things you already have on hand.  Make sure you label everything as well, AS YOU PUT IT AWAY so that you know what everything is when you go searching.  Use containers for tools and craft supplies, bins for office supplies, folders for paperwork, and so forth.  

When you're all done you should have a tidy workspace with no clutter.  Everything should be in a logical place.  The key here for the future is that the next time you need to use something, put it away in the correct place.  This prevents things from accumulating in your work area and makes it easier to find what you need in a hurry. 

Is your workspace organized already or could it use some work?
