Useful Tips To Declutter Your Workspace

Take a Picture

The first step that’s helped many people declutter their workspace is to take a picture of it. Grab the camera and take a few pictures of your desk or home office and evaluate the photos. I’m sure this will help you realize just how cluttered your space is so that you’re more motivated to use my tips below to gain control of your workspace again.

Identify Most-Needed Items

Take a look at your desk and set out any of your most-needed items. These are items that you frequently use during your workday. These will be the only items that should be within reach on top of your desk or a shelf beside your desk for quick access.

Create Zones

Another way to declutter your workspace is to create zones for different aspects of your workday. Perhaps you have a zone for writing, a zone for research, and so forth. This is easier done if you have a large desk space, so don’t worry if you can’t accomplish this task during your decluttering process.

 Just Toss or File It

Take the time to go through all of the paperwork you have cluttered around your workspace. If you don’t need the item, then toss it. If you need the item, then place it in a file cabinet. That way, you have quick access to it, but it’s not in your face during your workday.

Go Digital

Another option to handle excess paperwork is to go digital. There are many programs and options to scan documents and receipts into your computer.

This helps you refrain from future paperwork clutter, and gives you a chance to get up to date with the times. Store all of your paper contracts, and printed work items in a digital format to save space in your workspace.

Declutter Your Workspace

Be Practical

Think about your workday and what you do during the day at your workspace. Make a list of tasks you do daily and what equipment or supplies you need during these tasks. Use drawers in your desk to place smaller items you use and desk shelves that go under your monitor to store items without cluttering up your desk space.

Use Cable Management

There are many basic cable management systems available online. It’s amazing how far cable management systems have come! Select an option to get the cables under control in your workspace so that you do not see this mess of cables while you’re trying to stay focused on work.

These are just some of the best ways to declutter your workspace so that you feel relaxed, inspired, and motivated to get your work done every day. I hope that my tips have helped you figure out a plan to spring clean your desk or home office soon!
