The new year is a great time to reorganize your office. Here are a few tips for keeping your workspace tidy and more pleasant to be in, as suggested in the article “New Year Resolutions – Organized Office & Studio Space”:
- Stay on top of the clutter. Don’t wait until you know you’re going to have a visitor to clean your workspace. Try to set aside some time every Friday to clear out old papers, organize your supplies, and put things in their designated places.
- Organize electrical cords. There are so many systems and gadgets to keep electrical cords organized and off your desktop. For example, you can feed your cords through a hole in your desktop, plug them into a power strip, label each cord, and keep them all and a basket attached to the underside of your desk.
- Find effective and interesting storage options. Storage areas or containers can also fit into your decor. There are so many DIY options for sprucing up old cabinets, shelves, or containers!
- Treat yourself to interesting supplies. Perhaps a really nice pen or some personalized stationery really brightens your day. Giving yourself a few of these items might cheer up the ordinary work routine and give you more incentive to keep your supplies organized.
