3 Tips to Declutter Your Office
When your office is too cluttered, it can negatively impact your productivity. For many people, even seeing overflowing piles of paper, binders, and folders can trigger a stressful reaction and make it harder to focus and complete the task at hand. If you’re ready to get a head start on spring cleaning, then follow these tips from Armstrong Archives, providers of premier corporate record management solutions in Texas.
- When you’re done with something, get rid of it. This may seem like a no-brainer, but many people end up leaving old papers or trash lying around that they don’t need. If a paper document finds its way to your desk and doesn’t need to be filed, then shred or recycle it when you’re finished. This will help stem that ever-growing pile on the corner of your desk.
- Every few months, evaluate what you need and what you don’t. Are you hoarding papers for that project that you finished three months ago? While you may have reason to keep them for future reference, it doesn’t mean that they need to be taking up valuable real estate on your desk. If you don’t need to access them for a while, then file them away elsewhere. This is also true for photos and knickknacks. While they can add a personal touch to your workspace, you shouldn’t have so many that they are encroaching on your usable work area.
- If you’re running out of space in your office, call in the experts. Do you feel like you’re drowning in paper documents? Are all of your filing cabinets stuffed to the gills? That’s when it’s time to call in Armstrong Archives.
