Customly Craft your work space
Running low on space in your work area? Every where you seem to look is covered in papers and the papers you actually need are buried under other papers? Check out these tips for maximizing whatever type of office space you have. If you have a big or small space either way you’ll be able to stay organized.
First off don’t get sucked into the myth you need a bigger office. If you cant manage to keep a small office clean and organized how would having more space help? You’ll just have more room for clutter to occur. Instead in your smaller office space try to maximize it completely. Maybe you have some space under your desk that can be used to store some folds. Personal i have an accordion folder for my tax info and additional business documents under my desk. Get creative and look for spaces to store stuff.
If you have lots of computer cables laying around, use binder dividers to label them. Also either use tape or some tip of clip to hold them all together. Also consider somehow suspending the cords so that they hang out the way.
If you want to see a dramatic decrease in office clutter stop relying on paper. Its 2014 you can email all your documents. Skype is a great way to get pertinent info face to face instead of a fax. It is way easier to organize a messy computer than a bunch of paper work. Save yourself the trouble; create some folders on your computer and start using technology properly.
Take advantage of vertical space. Buy shelves that stand upright to make use of your empty walls. Why hang up pictures when you can have another place to store your things?
Don’t think you need to reorganize all on your own, do some research. Find some sites on this topic to help facilitate yourself staying organized.
