On my profile, I list "my desk" as my most challenging area to keep organized. Here at work, we recently switched how we pay and process invoices, adding many steps in the process. I realized this was making me even more disorganized.
One day, I got frustrated, and I decided it was time for a system. Using my Dymo Label manager, I documented all of the 'steps' in the process – "received", "submitted in system / awaiting PO", "awaiting confirmation" and "recorded".
I thumb-tacked folders to the side of my cubicle, thus creating a vertical "flow" for these papers to move through the system and remind me where each one stands and which ones need attention.
How do you organize your papers in your office ?
