Get Your Office Ready for 2010

 5 quick steps you can take to help get your office ready and organized for 2010.

1. Reference Files

Any reference files that you have not “referenced” in the past 6 months and are not legal documents you are required to keep, discard.

2. Post it Notes

Take all your post it notes down and any note that is outdated, you have no idea what it means, or is a duplicate of another note, discard.  Notes that contain reference information, tape them down on an 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of paper and put them in clear sheet protectors in a binder for reference.  Notes that are reminders of a task that needs to be completed, tape each one down on its own 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of paper and place it in your 1-31 file. 

3. Pen Drawer

How many pens, highlighters, staple removers and paper clips have you accumulated over the past year?  Only keep what you really need and put the rest in the office supply cabinet.

4. Food Drawer

Get rid of old ketchup packets, sugar packets, straws, plastic ware, napkins, outdated snacks, old popcorn packets, etc (sound familiar?) and make room for healthy snacks.

5. Your Horizontal World

It’s probably been awhile since the furniture polish has been out, so grab some paper towels or a cleaning rag, spray your desk, file cabinets, book shelves and freshen up your office and work area.

 Have fun and enjoy your clean, organized office!

Best wishes for an organized and productive 2010!
