How a Clean + Organize Office Can Boost Productivity & Happiness

We’ve all been there . . . you meet a new business colleague at the local networking event held monthly at a cafe down the street from your office. Then, as murphy’s law would have it you receive an email from them the next day that says “I have a few minutes today to stop by your office and tour your company”. You want to answer the email with much enthusiasm but as you look around your office you see piles on top of piles of clutter, your happiness is deflated like a balloon. 

Spring cleaning isn’t just something to do at home. Your workspace deserves a little TLC, too. Office spring cleaning can help improve your performance at work, it’s the reason for the smile on your face every day . . . it’s not what your coworkers think the smile is for!

The mood of your workspace has a big impact on the way you do your job. You’ll save a lot of time and energy if your things are tidy and easy to find. Investing in the process now will save you mucho time later.

“For every minute spent organizing, an hour is earned.” – Benjamin Franklin

FOCUS ON WHERE YOU’RE GOING, NOT WHERE YOU’VE BEEN

Picture this, the “future you” – What kind of space do you want to work in?

Be sure to build a workspace with that vision of “you” in your workspace in mind. You aren’t cleaning your office for your past — you’re doing it for your future – keep that your mindset.

Ask yourself this, what kind of a year do you want to have? 

A year better than last . . . Right? If you’re planning to take on projects, set up a space to work on those projects. Having a vision for the future of your office or business is clearly essential.

“Clutter is nothing more than postponed decisions.”  ~ Barbara Hemphill 

HAVE A PLAN

Cleaning + organizing is a process. And, that process starts by taking everything out of the area or what I call ZONES you’re working on.

Redesign the area for your needs. If you’re doing clean + organize in small intervals, take it a drawer at a time. If you’re spending the afternoon working on your office, you can attack larger zones, like your entire desk, making sure you get all those little bags of oyster crackers you’ve been saving from the lunchroom . . . I know, I know! 

This is one area where size doesn’t matter in any vision, the first step is to take a look at all of your items. Remove them from the zone you’re working on so you can clean the area too. (please don’t skip this step). Take the drawers out of your desk. Trust us: the drawers are dirty and need to be cleaned. Don’t be surprised if you find that award you wanted to hang since the start of the millennial. 

Take a last look at the items to make decisions about what stays and what goes bye-bye. Clean anything you’re keeping or donating. Now, find a home for the items you’re holding on to…. Every item needs a functional home, if one doesn’t exist create one.

Make sure that you have quick access to the things that you use most. Group things together into categories to help you stay organized in the future. Having a small area designated for papers or other things that need to be put away at the end of the workday can be helpful especially when you’re in a rush and things get extra busy at work.

Who Doesn’t Like a Quickie?

This practice, I had included in my cleaning/organize service years ago before it was cool to challenge.

I used to use a timer , , , yes a timer it was before cell phones. I used a timer to keep me focused on my time in each home that I cleaned & Organized.

It was a win-win practice for everyone, these tedious areas received some TLC that I couldn’t get to each time I cleaned, and I was happy it was helpful for my clients.

Peace Harmony & Love

What Clutter Hot-Spot Gives You Anxiety?

~Today We Will Declutter The Basement~

Here are the (4) Steps that I’m using to declutter my basement, we are in the process of putting our home on the market. We have lived in the home for 30 years this past December. We have had more good memories than bad in this house, it has been our sanctuary during tough financial times, illnesses, deaths. It has been a great home for us and those you have entered its doors – it will make a great home for a new family, I hope they have good memories just as we have had living here.

The 4 Steps that I use to get me started on ANY decluttering project – no matter how big or how small the area, it’s the same process:

  1. What’s Trash?The first box will be your designated trash dump. Any items you want to get rid of that aren’t worth donating or selling go here. Pro tip: to save yourself a step, go ahead and use ForceFlex Garbage Bags instead of a box so you can take your trash straight to the curb after cleaning up. And don’t forget to recycle items whenever possible!
  2. What to Giveaway or Sell? Second, designate a box for items that are still in OK condition, but that your household could do without — like old books or toys, for example. Whether you want to give these things away to family/friends, donate them to charity, or sell them in a yard sale to make a little extra money is totally up to you. Stay tuned these coming weeks I will have an article about selling your items online.
  3. What will go in Storage? The third box is for things that you can’t or doesn’t want to get rid of, but that you aren’t in need of on a day-to-day basis (think things like seasonal decorations). It’s also a good idea to make an inventory of items that you’re putting in storage as you go — that way, you won’t be left wondering what exactly is taking up space in your garage or attic down the line. 
  4. What is going to be put away? Lastly, have a box ready to place any items that need to be kept in your house, but relocated to their proper place. If you want to get really organized, you can have a few smaller boxes — one each for places like your bathroom, kitchen, or bedrooms — and sort misplaced items into their “homes” to save yourself the hassle later.

A Couple of Ways To Cut Clutter

Couple of Spaces

A cluttered home can simply drain you of energy; that much is pretty common knowledge. However, there are other hidden costs of clutter as well.

Clutter can drain your finances and schedule, too. That’s why it’s important to organize your home and workplace calendars along with the finances. Being informed about all monies coming out of or into your check, this way there is no surprises or crisis.

While you don’t need to have your cookbooks alphabetized or your shoes lined up according to the color (if I don’t it could be sleepless nights for me), it is important to have everything in its place and have that place be somewhere that has a purpose.

Peace Harmony & Getting Energized!
