What Are the Best Office Storage Hacks?
1. Try Going Paperless
Piles of paper everywhere really does affect mental health and stress levels.
We’re now always-on, hyperconnected and more digitised than we’ve ever been – maybe it’s time to ditch the paper.
Everything can be done on a device, so check out digital notetaking, accounting and invoicing apps. Then, switch off that printer – you’ll be pleasantly surprised how little you need it.
2. Labels, Labels, Labels
There’s no point to a clutter-free office or workspace if you have no idea where anything is. So, once you’re happy everything is where it should be, a trusty label-maker is a great tool to implementing a system of fast file, equipment or invoice retrieval.
3. Use Drawer Dividers
‘A place for everything, and everything in its place.’
That’s how the adage goes. And using drawer dividers is a nifty trick to having what you need, at your fingertips.
4. Hide Your Wires
Perhaps everyone’s biggest office organisation bug-bear – the dreaded tangle of cables and wires behind the desk. It is arguably the single biggest anxiety-inducing workstation mess, and when anxiety strikes, productivity sputters.
Take some time to separate the wires, and once you have, make use of the many cable-reducing space-savers out there – like spiral cable wraps, for example. File clips or washing pegs can be secured to the cable and desk for cable separation, too.
It’s all in keeping the workflow going – a severely disorganised space will cause productivity to lag, even stop. Not only that, but the stress that comes with the clutter and chaos is enough to severely hamper comfort, and your home office may start to become an area you’d rather avoid. Office storage solutions will do the trick, though, so try some of these hacks, and get your workspace right. You’ll be back on track and winning again, soon.
