Spring Cleaning and Organizing for Your Office

posted by Andrea | 03/24/2012


Whether you work in a corporate office, have a designated home office, or even just an area in the corner of the living room where you pay the bills, schedule appointments, and check emails; it’s important to keep that area clean and clutter-free.

So since I talk a lot about cleaning {and more specifically “spring cleaning”} I thought I should talk a bit about cleaning and organizing your office area.

Spring Cleaning… For Your Office

If you’re like me… you probably spend a good chunk of the day in your office. And if you’re like me… you hate working in a messy, dusty, dirty space!

OK, so even if you don’t mind a little mess, dust, and dirt, a good spring cleaning might just bring new life to your office space and facilitate even more productivity on your part!

Here are a few quick tips to clean up your office space.


10 Ideas To Organize Your Office in 10 Minutes or Less

I hate wasting time!

So I’m always on the lookout for quick organizing projects to tackle when I have a few extra minutes here and there. I’ve even started timing some of my daily tasks, and found that I could accomplish many of them in 10 minutes or less.

After thinking about these 10-minute tasks, I realized that by completing one task every day for a year, I could tally up over 60 hours of organizing — pretty impressive!

So even if you’re short on time these days, I challenge you to think about little things you can do each day to get your office space more organized without wasting a bunch of precious time.

Here are 10 ideas to help you get started!

I know I’m always SO MUCH MORE productive if I’m working in a clean and organized space. If you can relate… Spring might just be a great time to do a little deep cleaning and organizing {and enjoy your more productive space!}

Do you have any great tips for keeping your office space neat and organized?

    My biggest BIGGEST problem is paper. With technology, you would think paper would decrease. Nope, I feel like it has increased! Now since both of my kids are in preschool, the amount of paper coming home and junk mail I get is overwhelming. Unfortunately, it all goes on my desk in the kitchen or on the table. I try to spend a few minutes every other day going through the papers because it is so hard to do it immediately sometimes. I have read before to set a timer and declutter for 15 minutes or so. I also feel like I am lacking space and just don’t know what to do with certain papers. Like, do I really really need this or do I shred? It’s so hard to make those decisions sometimes. 🙂

    I share space with multiple people (my family!) and one thing that helps is getting very rigorous with daily upkeep. What takes 2 minutes daily takes an hour weekly! I’m always looking for better ways to manage the stuff we need, keeping it accessible without being junky!
