When getting settled into a busy working day, especially a Monday morning, you should take the time to ensure you have all the essential office supplies you need to hand within your little space, to ensure you get off to a healthy start.
There is nothing more disruptive to a good start than suddenly discovering you don’t have something you should. Not having what you need right in front of you means you have to get up, go find it and then try and get back into the swing of things. Your productivity and organisation have to be on top form at the beginning of every week, and searching for pens or files that have not been given their proper space are especially frustrating.
There is no bigger stress than having loose paper everywhere, a missing pen and file boxes just randomly missing from where they should be. It’s the most common demotivator there is to a working day.
Having a fully organised set of desk trays, box files and cabinets around your desk is designed to make things much more organised. There are also great pen holding cups that you can use to ensure that they do not wander off when you need them most. It is very easy to fall into the trap of just putting everything into one tray and getting to it later, but that becomes a very time-consuming exercise and one that 8 times out of 10 leads to a loss of what you are looking for.
By having box files, cabinets and filing trays dedicated to certain tasks, you are more certain not to be lost when needing something important.
Shredders and Waste Bins
There is nothing worse than having your desk clogged up with trash papers, opened empty envelopes and scribble paper. It is amazing how many of them seem to linger around the desk or make their way into trays.
By providing a couple of options for their destination, you greatly reduce the disorganization and provide a cleaner working atmosphere. You can have a paper shredder within your office to help get rid of any excess paper safely so that any information containing your name or address or sensitive information will be unreadable. You should always have a bin around your desk also so that all trash can find its place and not hang around your desk, making it a mentally unhealthy environment for the daily workload.
Having all of the essential office supplies to hand in one tray within your desk makes it so much more organised and stress-free. Too many times we are looking for paperclips, or staples or other stationery items when they can be easily contained within a tidy drawer and easy to find.
