office organization tips and tricks

We’ve all been there: the office is a mess, but you don’t know what to do about it. You feel overwhelmed and confused about how to get organized, and no one else seems to care either way. We’re here to help! We put together some simple tips and tricks that will help you get your space in order without having to hire an interior designer or anything like that. Check them out below!

Use a set of file drawers or a filing cabinet to hold miscellaneous papers and important documents.

You can use a file drawer or filing cabinet to hold miscellaneous papers and important documents. A filing cabinet is the perfect place for storing files, but if you don’t have room for one, a file drawer will do just fine. Keep in mind that it may be easier to find something if you use hanging folders instead of standard ones so that they sit flat on their own accord without needing to be stacked on top of each other inside the drawer.

If you have a lot of papers that need to be organized and filed, it may be helpful to break down the process into several steps. This will make it easier for you to stay on track, especially if your filing system is complicated.

Use plastic storage bins, open-top containers, or clear shoe boxes for all your office supplies. Label each box, so you instantly know what is inside.

One of the best ways to keep your office organized and tidy is by storing all of your office supplies in clear plastic storage bins, open-top containers or clear shoe boxes. This way, you can identify what is inside each container without having to take everything out. You can also stack them on shelves or place them on the floor or desk. The key is to use labels so that everyone knows what is in each container before they grab it. For example:

  • “Desk Accessories” (storing pens, scissors and rulers)
  • “Calendar” (for storing calendars)
  • “School Supplies” (for storing pencils/pens/pencil sharpeners)

“Writing Supplies” (for storing markers, highlighters and tape) “Paperwork” (for storing important paperwork that needs to be filed away) “Paperclips/Binder Clips” (for storing individual paperclips or binder clips)

You can never have too many binder clips, pens and pencils, highlighters, paper clips, sticky notes, staplers, printer paper and felt tip markers on hand.

You can never have too many binder clips, pens and pencils, highlighters, paper clips, sticky notes, staplers and printer paper. Keep a couple of each in your desk drawer so you always have the essentials on hand. If your school has a copy center where students can print things for free or at nominal cost (as mine does), you’ll also want to keep lots of felt tip markers in your desk so that you don’t run out when it’s most convenient for you to print something out.

You may also want to keep scissors, tape, a ruler and erasers in your desk. Some teachers prefer students use their own supplies; others will provide items like markers and pencils for the class to share. If you’re not sure what kind of supplies your teacher prefers, it’s best to err on the side of over-preparedness.

Keep a pair of scissors in your desk drawer at all times.

You should always have a pair of scissors in your desk drawer. Scissors can be used to cut paper, tape, and other items. Keeping your scissors sharp helps them last longer and cuts better.

Do not use scissors as screwdrivers or pry tools; you could damage the blades and make them dangerous to use. Make sure to store scissors in a safe place out of the reach of children.

Store your office chair under your desk when it’s not in use to keep the floor space clear.

If you’re like me, then you spend most of your time at work sitting in your office chair. However, when it’s not being used to sit on, it often gets in the way. If left out as a permanent fixture on the floor of your office space, the chair can get in the way of people walking around and getting things done.

When it comes to arranging furniture in any room or space, there is always going to be wasted space—and this includes under desks! The best way to get more use out of what little space there is available under a desk is by storing items that aren’t being used at that moment (like an armless office chair). This will ensure that you have plenty of room for other things that need attention when they come up—like cleaning supplies or even an extra cupboard for storage!

Hang extra folders on the wall using metal hooks or put up shelving units to keep small items off of your desk.

  • Use metal hooks to hang folders and other small items on the wall.
  • Organize active files in open-back bookcases.
  • Hang a wall organizer over your desk to corral bills, receipts, and other clutter.

Use file sorters to keep your files organized by subject. Use a paper cutter to cut stacks of paper into more manageable sizes.

Use a paper shredder to destroy documents you no longer need. Place the paper shredder in an easily accessible location so you can use it frequently.

Stash frequently used items on shelves within easy reach. Place seldom-used items higher up or further back on your shelves.

You’ll save time and energy by keeping frequently used items within easy reach. Place seldom-used items higher up or further back on your shelves.

Make sure you have enough space for everything you need. Use wall organizers to keep bills and receipts organized, or hang a bulletin board by the front door with a calendar and family schedule so everyone knows when important events are happening, like soccer games and piano lessons.

The front of any bookcase is a great place to store active files that are used daily or weekly. You can also hang wall organizers from the top edges of open-back bookcases for an effective way to corral bills and receipts and other current paperwork.

The back of any bookcase is a good spot for several kinds of storage: rolled up rugs, magazines or catalogs, even old toys your kids have outgrown—anything you need to keep handy but don’t want in plain sight will fit here nicely.
