Tips To Creating An Organised Office

In today’s episode, I share my top ten tips to creating an organised office. Whether you’re an office manager, a business owner, or someone with a side hustle and working from home, you’re bound to find some useful tips and pointers in this episode.

When working in a team environment, there’s one thing for certain- shared spaces get messy, and they get messy fast. Stacks of paper, pieces of mail, leftovers from last week’s team meeting can really start piling up causing a cluttered mess.

Office Tip #03

Go paperless to help cut clutter and do your little bit for the environment.

If you use pen and paper to jot down to-do lists or 4 am ideas, Trello is a nifty little project management tool that can be customised to meet any requirement. Check out Lorrain Virtual’s article for her secrets to a successful setup. View the article here

Office Tip #05 Throw out leftovers from the office fridge every week.

The office fridge can become a germ war-zone. Make it an ‘office rule’ that the fridge will be emptied weekly (say Friday evening) unless items are clearly labelled.

Office Organisation Tip 6

Chuck out the clutter. Plain and simple- chuck it out. 

Office Organisation Tip 7

A place for everything, and everything in its place.

Offices are communal spaces shared by many, and they can quickly become crowded. One way of keeping an organised office is making sure everything has a designated place, and everything’s in its place. 

If you need a little help getting your office organised, reach-out to us as we have created an Office Organisation service to solve this very problem.

Invest in additional storage for office essentials.

Adding an extra bookshelf, or a storage cabinet in the stockroom are great ways to organise office necessities. Chelsea from I Heart Bargains did a segment showcasing some really great storage solutions from The Reject Shop- Watch the Video Here

Use a label maker to keep everything in order. I bet your label maker will become the new office pet.
