These days, everyone has a home office – a place where we pile up our bills, bank statements, etc. Over the past few months, we often tend to slack off on organizational skills and our desk becomes a terrible mess.
There are ways to dig out of that mess.
First, clean off the desk. It’s always good to start off with a clean slate.
Then, upgrade to a laptop. It takes up less space.
Buy a file cabinet and manila folders. You can organize your bills in different folders.
Next, organize your desk drawers, putting most-used items closer.
Then get rid of stuff you don’t use. Buy a paper shredder, so people won’t be able to steal your identity.
Finally take a few moments each night to clean up your desk. Take that coffee cup to the kitchen. Write a “to do list” for the next day.
