How to Organise Office Storage
Organising office storage is never an easy task, in fact it can be overwhelming to get down to organising all the paperwork and mess that surrounds your work area which is why many people just leave it to mount up. Office supplies all around can lead to poor productivity because of something called over cramming which is common in the workplace.
The first step is to organise your office files. To do this split them up into two batches, a pile that needs to be thrown away and another pile that is important and needs to be kept. Create a separate category for each file and colour code them so you know what is what and can easily access things quickly.
Use handy storage boxes to order files and other pieces of paperwork once they have been organised into piles that you want to keep and piles that you want to get rid of. Keep files in their categories in the boxes and then label each box according to what category is in it.
Store loose small items of office stationary in a plastic sealable bag so that you know where they are and so that you don’t lose them. You could even get yourself a pencil case! Now there’s an idea to jazz up your desk.
Buy yourself a paper shredder to get rid of your documents more quickly and throw away or recycle old magazines and papers that you have lying around on your desk. For up to date magazines and things that you want to keep then buy magazine holders and order them by name or colour code them again to make it easier to find things.
Store office supplies in a specific area so you know where to go if you want some stationary etc. Get some trays for your desktop for putting single documents in and other things. It’s all about organising to make for a more comfortable environment to work in so make sure that you can comfortably fill all of the drawers and even have some empty so that you can feel like there’s space if you really need it.
