A warm welcome smile from the employee or manager is a welcome sight as well as a clutter-free desk. However, a cluttered desk is the opposite as it directly spells inefficiency and messing up business deals with clients. Nevertheless, there are effortless techniques to keep your desk from being chaotic.
Select the appropriate office desk
Make sure that there are enough drawers as this will give you adequate space to keep your items. To put organization inside the drawers, make use of ductile caddies that have partitions to store pens, markers, paper clips, staple wires and other office supplies.
Assign a post for the bits and pieces
Objects that are frequently used must be placed within your reach to enable quick access while those that are used irregularly can be placed in the lowly shelves or drawers.
Have a trash can near your desk
Scribbled notes on slips of paper, days’ old notes and memos, pens and other unusable stuff must be thrown out directly to the trash can.
File on a regular basis
Use the filing cabinet and avoid the pile up of memos and other documents by filing on a regular basis. Some office desks were designed to have file drawers. Return folders and documents after using them. Schedule a particular day in a week to do your filing if you cannot do it daily.
Utilize desk top caddies
Desk top caddies or organizers are available in various forms and types and are very useful especially if your desk is not equipped with enough drawers. These caddies or organizers can hold the ordinarily used object in the office such as pens, pencils, scissors, paper clips, and memo and form pads. A360-degree rotating caddy allows you to find things easily.
Tidy your desk after a day’s work
Allot 10 to 15 minutes in a day to clear the clutter on your desk. Work can be very demanding or less demanding and stress can be taken off your shoulders by starting the day right with an uncluttered desk.
