As many people are working from home, has your time in your home office inspired a re-do? It’s hard to be productive when your office is cluttered or became a storage space for odds and ends. Read on to learn tips for clearing out your office to make it a more work-friendly space.

How to Clear out Your Home Office

Make a Plan

Don’t just jump right in! It can be overwhelming to tackle a project this big. Write a list of areas you’d like to address, make a plan, write it down, and communicate it with your helpers. There are many ways to go about cleaning your office, like:

  • Start with paperwork
  • Organize clutter
  • Inspect furniture

Use the three-pile method

Separate items into three categories: items you want to keep, things to throw away, and stuff that can be donated. Have three designated spots, bags, or baskets to keep organized.

Go through paperwork

Recycle the items you no longer need. If you are having a hard time parting with sentimental things like kids’ artwork, consider scanning it to it electronically so you can enjoy it forever—without the clutter.

Get rid of old electronics responsibly

Discarded electronics cause pollution. Most devices contain hazardous chemicals like mercury, lead, and flame retardants. When old electronics are discarded into landfills, they pollute the air and leak these chemicals into the soil. That’s why you can’t just put them out with your usual garbage pickup. Look for a recycling plant, or call in a company like JDog who responsibly takes care of unwanted electronics.

Replace, get rid of or fix home office furniture

That wobbly desk leg is pretty distracting when you’re trying to work. Consider repairing it or recycling it. You might be able to sell it at a discounted price to someone who would like to update it.
