Spring clean your office: Five tips for decluttering your workspace


Spring cleaning is no joke! It’s that season again when decluttering and organizing are important and it's important that you don't overlook your office. You spend the bulk of your weeks there, so it’s important to make sure it’s clean and orderly and that you enjoy being there as much as possible!

1.) Keep only what you need (and trash or donate the rest)

The first step in spring cleaning: there have got to be some items you can get rid of. Keep your family photos and your favorite birthday cards, but the old coffee cups and stacks of old papers have got to go. If it isn’t something you need to do your job and isn’t something you’re emotionally attached to, throw it away or give it to an office friend!

2.) Filing systems are your friend

Papers, papers everywhere. We’re sure you’re buried in paperwork like everyone else. Time to get organized as it will only boost your productivity! Color code or create a file for each day of the week! 

3.) Stop throwing everything in one drawer

Everyone has that drawer. The one with six dried up pens, various chapsticks and  your expired ID to get into the building. You have no space for it, so you throw it in the drawer. It’s time to get more use out of that drawer-put a drawer organizer in the drawer and clearly create a zone for each type of item. It will free up more space on your desk as well! 

4.) Spot clean your carpet (or bring in the professional cleaners)

Those mysterious stains that have been bugging you under your desk? Attack them the all natural way! To take care of water-soluble carpet stains, you can make your own stain remover by mixing one teaspoon of mild dishwashing liquid, like Dawn, into one quart of warm water, and adding 1/4 teaspoon of white vinegar.

5.) Inspire your cube-mates and neighbors to do the same!

There’s nothing less inspiring than seeing your neighbors chaotic space, especially after you’ve tidied up.
