National Clean out Your Desk Day
Tips for Celebrating
Today is National Clean Out Your Desk Day! This important day is celebrated on the second Monday of January each year. It’s a day to take a step back and set yourself up for success in your home or work office space by clearing out the clutter and sprucing it up.
Tips to Clean Out Your Desk and Office
- Use the three-pile method. We recommend this for any home organizing project. Separate items into three categories: items you want to keep, things to throw away, and stuff that can be donated. When you go through your desk and office, move the items to the proper bag, basket, or spot in the room keep organized.
- Sort through paperwork. Recycle the items you no longer need. (Be sure to shred documents with personal information first!) 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. Did you know discarded electronics cause pollution? Most devices contain hazardous chemicals like mercury, lead, and flame retardants, which pollute the air and leak these chemicals into the soil when deposited in a landfill. 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.
