To organize your office.

    1. Clear the pathways of clutter in your office.
    2. Get it off your desk!  Keep only essential items (computer, phone).
    3. Consider updating your equipment.
    4. Clean out each desk drawer, to free up even more valuable storage space. 
    5. Give your revamped office desk the reach test.
    6. If you work with more than one person create an in-box for each person.
    7. Have a master to-do list for each day at your desk.
    8. Pre-Sort the mail.  To-File, To-Read, To-Contact (write or call).
    9.  Use a variety of containers to organize office supplies, paper clips and pens.
    10.  Use desktop organizers to organize papers that come across your desk.
    11. Create a separate drawer for personal paperwork, items, etc.
    12. Check your storage needs and use storage boxes to store dated files.
    13. Purchase magazine boxes to store magazines, catalogs you want to keep.
    14. Filing system should be simple easy and manageable.
    15. Color-coding your tab hanging file folders makes it faster to find information.
    16. Do not over stuff folders.  It may be time to toss some of the information.
    17. Never overload filing drawer.  It makes it difficult to retrieve information.
    18. Return calls in batches.  Leave specific messages and the time you called if the person you’re trying to reach isn’t available.
    19. Empty workspace of everything but the project you’re working on to cut down on distractions.
    20. When using more than one checking account, color coded checks are an easy way to identify each account.
    21. At the end of each project or event, organize paperwork and file or store it.
    22. Straighten desk at the end of the day; so you can start each morning with a clear mind.
    23. Set up a recycling center.
    24. Backup, Backup, Backup those computer files!
