Desk Decluttering

One of the organizational challenges many people face in the workplace are the piles of papers that end up overtaking their (physical) desktop- this is especially true for me as a teacher.  To tackle this problem and free up some of that valuable workspace, I grabbed an inexpensive file box and some hanging folders.  Using my Dymo label maker, I labeled the tabs to correspond with the piles that frequently end up on my desk.  Now, instead of creating a pile of things that need to be filed or sent to the front office, I just tuck the document in the correct hanging file until I have a minute to put it where it belongs.  DSC_0698 
A bonus for me was that I really only needed four files, so the back of the box was left for me to tuck away my clipboard and the binder that accompanies me to staff meetings and the like.  Now I can quickly grab it as I walk out the door!

On the front of the box I used hot glue to attach a clear plastic page protector.  Right now there's just a blank blue sheet of paper tucked in there (so that when I used the hot glue it wouldn't adhere the front and back to each other), but this fall when we return to school it will hold our class schedule so that it can be easily referenced.  Each month I can quickly swap it out.  This would be great in the workplace too- you can even make changes or corrections on the plastic with an Expo marker and easily wipe it off later.

Do you have a great way to organize your desk in the workplace?  Share your ideas with us!

    Love that idea! It is so handy to have it visible instead of in another folder.
