Unorganized work space does not only look bad but can also decrease your productivity. It can get difficult to find the essential items in a cluttered space that may also hinder your efficiency. Here are five ways to organize your space and create a positive environment for work.
Get rid of the unnecessary items
Pick out the items that you don’t really need at the moment and get them off your desk. You can pile up the old files that you might need later and store them somewhere else and throw off the old stationery items to make some space to move your hands. Keeping only the required items on the desk will not only free some space for the new items but also help you save time when you’re looking for something important.
Keep the essentials in sight
Organize the most frequently required items in the front so you can reach for them without wasting any time. Arrange the entire space in the decreasing order of the usage of the items. For this, you can even customize your space by adding simple shelves and boards to keep all essentials in sight.
Don’t overcrowd it with personal belongings
As much as you want to feel like home, avoid putting too many photo frames or plants in your space. Minimize the personal items are that not necessarily required on the desk. However, keeping a plant in your space will give positive vibes and make can act as a décor item too. So, maybe invest in a small indoor plant that doesn’t require much care.
Detangle the wires
Your works pace can look messy with tangled wires all around and you may even trip over them. Make proper pathways for the wires and seal them with a tape around the desk. You can keep the wires that you may not require at the moment in a separate box and store them under the desk.
Increase the storage area
If you have lesser storage area, install a few drawers or make some space below your desk to store the files and other essentials so you don’t have to keep everything on the desk or keep running to some other place to get them when needed. Organize the storage spaces according to the types of items, for e.g. keep all the wires in one drawer and the files in another.
Now you know what to do with some time to spare at work. Get organizing!
