Is clutter weighing you down at home and the office?
Not sure where to start when it comes to clearing things out?
Here are 3 ideas to help you eliminate clutter to simplify and
streamline your life.
- Tidy up your desk
Do you find it difficult to work on your desk or find office
supplies when you need them? Remove old sticky notes,
out-dated papers and notes, junk mail, magazines, as well
as any obvious trash and wrappers from your work space.
Put office supplies such as pens, paper clips and pushpins
in small decorative containers, or store items in flat storage
bins or trays in your desk drawers. Don’t forget to chuck
any broken office supplies or dead plants that are on your
desk or sitting in your office.
2. Clear out your closet
Begin by purging any clothes that are obviously stained,
damaged, ripped, torn, or no longer fit. Next, remove any
clothing and accessories you no longer want or need.
Finally, take a good look at items you haven’t worn or
used in a year or two as well as items that are out-dated.
Will you really use these items soon, say tomorrow or
even in a months’ time? It might be time to bite the bullet
and say goodbye to these items.
3. Give your computer a cleanse
Clutter can appear in many different forms on your computer.
Consider clearing out files from your desktop screen (file items
or delete them), cleaning out or emptying your computer’s trash
or recycle bin, defragmenting your drive, or getting rid of
applications and programs you no longer use. Finish things
off by wiping down your computer’s screen and keyboard with
an appropriate computer cleansing solution and cloth to clear
off dirt and germs.
Pick one of these tips to handle clutter in your life and use
it in the next week.
Go forth and eliminate clutter!
