Tips for Organizing Your Office

I wanted to create this lens to help others organize their office space. The inspiration for this lens was My Friend, Jill! I had soo much fun helping her organize her office! Thanks, Jill!

Thanks soo much for stopping by my lens today!

Office Organization Idea

Step By Step for Organizing Your Office - Let's Get Started

  • STEP 1: Start with one cabinet at a time! Start sorting through things in that cabinet. Now make boxes that say:

    TO DONATE

    TO TRASH

    TO THINK ABOUT

    TO STORE

    TO KEEP

    The key in organizing is to make it fun & not to overwhelm yourself. As you go through your cabinets, sort things into your boxes.

    TO DONATE: When you are finished, immediately take your boxes for donation to your car & take them to the place you're donating or call the place you are donating to and arrange for them to pick up your stuff.

    TO TRASH: Take your trash out immediately & don't look back!

    TO THINK ABOUT: Now - there is your think about it box. If you haven't used it in the past year - then my motto is "LOSE IT!"

    TO STORE: Go out and buy some storage containers, preferably clear ones with a lid. Walmart always seems to have the best price on these, sometimes Target. Put your stuff in the containers & make a label on the end of the container that says what it is. Now take it to your basement, garage, storage shed, or wherever you store your stuff & stack it neatly.

    TO KEEP: Now we are left with the stuff that you want to keep!

  • STEP 2: Now let's take all the stuff that you have left to keep and start organizing it into categories of like items. Here are some categories I used in doing my office and my friend, Jill's office:

    -Batteries

    -Cards

    -Computer Paper, Labels, Photo Paper

    -Computer Ribbons

    -Dry Erase Markers

    -Envelopes

    -Highlighters

    -Paper Clips & Misc. Clips

    -Pencils

    -Pens

    -Permanent Markers

    -Post It Notes

    -Rubberbands

    -Stapler, Stapler Refills, & Stapler Remover

    Take your like items and start organizing them into your containers.

  • STEP 3: When you're done place the containers in your desk or your office and enjoy your organized space!!! Remember one little thing: If you get it out - put it back!!! It takes just 30 days to make a new habit or break an old one! Also, it takes the same time to get something out and to put something back. A picked up space looks like a clean space to others eyes!

THANKS FOR STOPPING BY! - Have A HaPpY Day!!!
