Keeping Your Desk Clear

13th February 2014

When you are sitting at your desk all day in the office it is important that you are not cramped and that your desk is clean and free of clutter. Working in a cramped and messy environment can be stifling and depressing, so it is good to make the best possible use of the storage facilities available.

Regular Clear outs
Your desk can easily get cluttered, particularly if you’re the type of person who likes to keep handwritten notes on everything. Keep all your crucial notes in a tightly bound folder if you have to keep paper copies, or type them up into a document. It is important to have spare pens, but do not go overboard, and remember to throw out any pens that run out or notebook covers that happen to be lying around, office clutter can build up quickly.

Get a bin
It may sound obvious, but if you have a rubbish bin within easy access of your desk you are less likely to accumulate clutter. Employees with desks far away from bins tend to wait for their rubbish to build up, and then get rid of it in one go. If your bin is mere feet away from your desk, you will be more inclined to just throw away rubbish rather than letting it built up.
