Spring Cleaning: Tips to Better Organize Your Space

After a hard fought Winter season we are finally truly into Spring, which means that it’s time to get clean; what better time to improve and renew your work environment than when nature’s environment is doing the same thing! The idea of cleaning can take on different meanings (physically vacuuming, wiping things down and de-cluttering or establishing ways to maintain a clearer space for the long haul). The best method is a plan that encompasses both ideas to some extent.

Here are some tips to help get your space better organized:

“Ritualize Your Work Day

Organization isn’t a one-and-done proposition; you must keep up with the influx of documents, files, projects and communications. When you’re done working for the day, devote about 15 minutes to update your to-do list, file completed projects and replace in-progress items in their proper place. That makes for a clean, fresh, organized start when you arrive at work the next morning.

Purge Your Workspace

Go through those stacks of papers and get rid of duplicates. Clean out your desk drawers and filing cabinets and throw out (or recycle) anything you haven’t used in six months. When you’re left with only necessary items and have removed excess clutter, you can more easily organize what’s left.

Rearrange Your Office

Next, evaluate the furniture layout in your newly purged space based on how you work. If you have to get up every time you need to throw something away or replace a file, your desktop and your floor can easily become your trash can/file storage, NAPO says. Arrange furniture, files, and trash receptacles so that they’re easy and quick to access. (Sharon Florentine, cio.com)”

We thrive on helping people create the optimal spaces that work best for them. Through consultation and collaboration we develop and create effective, ergonomic and beautifullly modern work environments.
