Decluttering Your Workspace At Home

Decluttering Your Workspace

I’ve put together thing post on decluttering and how to keep organised your home office. More of us are working from home at the moment so it’s really important to stay on top of things. The first step is to identify what you want to keep and what you want to discard.

Once you have identified all of the items that need to be discarded, it is time for you to start packing up trash cans, bags, and boxes; create bins for recyclables; pack up personal items that need to be stored elsewhere, and put away or discard any food or drinks that are no longer needed.

Why is Decluttering Your Workspace Important?

Many people have an overflowing workspace. This can be stressful for them and they may not get their work done. If you are feeling the need for a change, take some time to declutter your space so that you can find what you are looking for easily.

Decluttering your space is important because it will make it easier for you to find what you need when it’s needed. You’ll also feel more comfortable in your personal space knowing that it’s organized and clean. It can also help with stress levels which is important in the workplace since high-stress levels can decrease performance while low-stress levels often correlate to increased performance results.

5 Tips to Keep Your Workspace Organized and Clean

We spend a lot of time in our workspace. We work hard and play hard there. Our workspace is one of the most important parts of our home office. Keeping it clean and organized ensures that we’ll be more productive and spend less time cleaning later on.

1) Have a dedicated space for each activity. For example, your computer will have a specific place, if you do packaging – make sure that also has a specific place allocated for it.

2) Create multiple storage spaces for all the things you use often. When things have a home, it’s easier to pop them back on their places once you’ve finished using them.

3) Delegate tasks to your colleagues when it makes sense. You don’t have to do everything yourself.

4) Have zero tolerance for clutter, resist the urge to “just pile it in”. This is the worst thing you can do. Things will add up and you’ll never find anything easily.

5) Keep your space tidy by moving items out of sight when not in use. Utilise drawer space and cubby holes.

I hope you’ve found this helpful. As more and more of us are working from home these days, it’s important to stay on top of our clutter. Please check out my other home and garden related posts here.
