Office De-clutter: 5 tips for the busy worker

At Errandsplus we’re called out from time to time to help de-clutter work spaces; a task which we particularly enjoy doing by the way. Usually, all that’s required is a little bit of our planning and organisational genius and the work is done in no time at all...and then the cycle is repeated because for many, work space clutter is a real and constant issue. People are happy to dump receipts, bills, bank statements, letters etc in their work spaces, just to keep the living area free and conducive for relaxation.

Our tips below should help you enjoy a better organised and better functioning work space:

1. Set aside a couple of minutes every day just before the close of work, to chuck away useless pieces of paper, put away pens, markers and other stationery into their holders and to give your space a quick tidy.
2. Get a brightly coloured medium sized box for dumping the usual suspects like shopping receipts which easily form a pile (I use an inexpensive red box from Ikea) and make time whenever suitable to file them away.
3. Avoid bringing in items that have no use in your work space e.g. items of clothing and cutlery, although the odd coffee mug should pose no problem. These have a way of taking up usable space.
4. Personalise your work space to suit your preferences in design and colour; importantly invest in the right furniture for your height, body size and even type of work.
5. Keep items you use daily within easy reach, and store away spares and bulks.
