We all have that stack (or two, or three) of papers, files and things “to do” piled on our desk. We say to ourselves, “I’ll get to that when I have a spare moment.“ But, in today’s fast-paced work environment, spare moments are hard to find. Here are 3 simple office cleaning and organizational tips to help you tackle that pile, get organized and be more productive.
- Schedule time
Make an appointment with yourself to go through the piles of stuff on your desk or in your in-box. Accomplish this by setting a calendar invite for yourself so you don’t forget, and stick to it. Carving out time can help you get organized.
- Scan, Scan, Scan!
Every office should have a scanner. Scanning documents, receipts and other important pieces of paper has multiple benefits.
- You have access to your documents at your fingertips. No more going through endless files in a file cabinet searching endlessly for that one important document.
- You can easily share documents with your fellow workers or employees either by way of sending a file by email or for easy collaboration using an online tool such as OneNote or ShareSnyc.
- Declutter your computer’s desktop
We all have PDFs, photos, Word, and/or Excel documents saved our desktops. We save them there so we can quickly find what we are looking for. But, overusing your desktop as a file manager can be a bit overwhelming. It can actually make it more difficult to find the file you need. Keeping files in a dedicated folder and even sub-folders will take the guessing work out of “Where did I save that?”
