How to Effectively Identify Useless Office Junk

Paul's Rubbish

An organised workspace and one that is free of clutter will supercharge your day. Such a workspace will provide you with more room to finish your daily tasks in addition to freeing you from the visual distractions that cause stress. However, some people fail to de-clutter their office mainly because they feel personally attached to everything in it.

Others are afraid of making decisions about their office stuff while others lack the time to dispose of the unimportant items. Regardless of your reason, the following tips will help you identify the useless junk around your office so that you can find simple ways to get rid of it.

Identify the items your office cannot run without

Make a list of the items you use on a weekly or daily basis. For this method to work, you will have to monitor your usage within a month. At the end of the month, you will have a list of the items you used and easily identify what you should not keep. Anything that you rarely use each month apart from the office files and cables is worth donating.

Sort out the items you have in your office when cleaning

By adding office cleaning in your calendar, you will commit yourself to the job. Setting up a few hours for the task will ensure that the cleaning does not affect your office operation. When cleaning, you are likely to identify many items that you rarely use. Separate anything that you would want to dispose of the items to keep.

As a general rule of thumb, you should not keep anything just because it makes you happy to see, dispose of if it does not support your work. Do not keep duplicates if it unnecessary. Drop anything that you cannot donate off the nearest recycling centre.

Digitise some items

If there are many pictures and business cards in your office, consider digitising what you can. Some things like business cards will go after you have saved their contacts on your computer. Dispose of anything you received in a seminar apart from a certificate of achievement or an award. Go for scanner-printer-fax all-in-one unit. It will save your office valuable space.

Identify the items you do not own

After you have identified the items to digitise and to donate, you should now identify the items you do not own. If you have some of them and you do not need them in your office, you should ask the owners to collect them. And because some people might not want to clutter their offices with items they rarely use, you might need to deliver them by yourself.

Organise what you want to keep

After throwing out what you do not need in your office, it is time to buy what you need to organise your office. Buy bags, bins and any other supply that will help you achieve that. You do not need many pens or notebooks on your desk. You just need your computer, a single pen, and a notebook.
