If one of your resolutions is to get organized, don’t forget to start with your desk. Keeping your work space neat and clean is a great way to stay productive and focused at work. Here are a few tips to get you started.


1:Start with a massive purge of everything on or in your desk. Throw out trash and find a new home for things you don’t really need at your desk.

2: After purging unnecessary items, find a designated home for all of your belongings. Keep all of your office supplies in a tray, snacks inside of a designated drawer, and file away paperwork. Having a place for all of your items will make daily cleanup faster and keep you more organized.

3: It’s important to stay plugged in, but all cords and chargers can cause an excessive amount of clutter on your desk. Make sure you tether off your cords to keep them from creating a large tangled mess.

4: Scanning your documents is another way to save space and remain organized. If your more of a traditionalist, just file your papers away neatly.

5: At the end of each day, make sure you clean off your desk and put everything where it belongs. It can be tempting to leave papers astray, but taking time to stay organized each day will keep your work space cleaner in the long run.
