Last month, we talked about the common problem that many of us have when it comes to keeping our office clean – the desk – and why it gets so cluttered so quickly. That being said, what can you do in order to keep your desk more organized throughout the year? What tips can you use to keep your desk as neat as possible? Here are some tips that you should try next time.
Compartmentalize everything. You have drawers in your desk for a reason, but you don’t want to just stuff everything in there and hope that it stays organized. No, instead you want to make sure that you have everything in a particular place that it always goes and stays. Get containers for your pens and other small items. Have a drawer for important papers. Just make sure that you have everything in order and where you can find it at a moment’s notice – that way, you don’t feel so scattered or stressed out.
Does everything really need to be on your desk? Some people, especially if they work at home or just spend a lot of time at their desk in general, will put anything and everything on their desk. Looking at my desk, I’ve got medications, water bottles, and a wide variety of other things on it. That being said – do you really need to have all of that junk on there? Reevaluate exactly what needs to be on your desk and what could be located in other areas (even if it’s in a drawer or somewhere else). That can help you find more room for the things that actually need to be on your desk, and you won’t feel like you’re knocking everything over all of the time either.
Sit at the end of the day and reorganize your desk. When you’re done with your desk for the day, don’t just leave it as it is. Instead, take the time to look at it and figure out exactly what you need to do in order to get it back to the organized state it was in before. By taking a minute or two to tidy up your desk at the end of the day, you’ll have an easier time keeping track of everything and keeping it in the organized state that you want it to be in in the first place.
