6 Tips for Spring Cleaning and Desk Organization

The warmer weather has arrived indicating that spring is finally here! Many people choose spring as the season to clean out the cobwebs at home and do a little cleaning. Well, just like at home, it's time for some spring cleaning at the office.


Spring cleaning is a great reason to organize your desk and reevaluate your office space. Below, we've compiled some of our favourite cleaning and organizational tips for the office in order to help you step into spring with a work space that feels fresh, efficient and, above all else, clean!




6 Tips for Spring (Desk!) Cleaning:

  1. Evaluate your desk or workstation: While you can choose to tackle spring cleaning in any matter that you wish, we recommend starting big, then narrowing down to the smaller stuff. Start with your desk as a whole. Does it need an upgrade? Could you benefit from a more organized cubicle system or desk? There's no point organizing all of your drawers and papers if you plan on getting a new desk in the near future.
  2. Upgrade your desk accessories: Consider adding a filing system to your workstation, or ergonomic accessories, such as an adjustable monitor arm, a foot rest or a keyboard tray. Ergonomic accessories relieve unnecessary tension throughout your body, allowing you to work pain free, with fewer interruptions, and be more productive at your work space.
  3. Clear your desk: If you have a cluttered desk, chances are that you also have a clutter headspace when you sit down to do your work. Keep a photo or two, or hang what you can on the walls, but leave you desk as clear as possible and free for you to do your work. Put nicknacks in drawers or take them home. Other options for making space include using a monitor arm to raise your monitor off of your desk, or a keyboard tray to keep your desk clear. 
  4. Recycle what you do not need: Go through any stacks of papers that you may have lying around and sort them into two piles. Those you do not need, which you can recycle, and those you do need.
  5. File what you do need: File the papers you do need in a way that makes sense to you so that you feel more organized regarding your work, and are able to efficiently find documents when you need them.
  6. For Future - Think before you print: For future documents, make a conscious decision to evaluate whether hardcopies are necessary. Sometime you will need to print a document, however, often, we print things out of habit. Having less hardcopies will keep your desk clutter-free and the environment happy!
