This is my day two of getting organized. Yesterday, I took items in the office, not in their correct place, and piled them around a chair in the middle of the office.
I got the furniture Polish and wiped down all the newly freed tabletops and other services within the room. Now came a moment of thinking. I had books, papers, and many other items in this vast pile. I had to plan the most efficient way to place everything within my office and know what I did not need so I could get rid of it.
Books and a few nick-knacks go on the bookshelves. Clutter does not. All the professional books for my work go in one section. The blogging book is not a mystery and does not belong on the fiction shelf.
Anything that cannot be easily seen, such as files and items stored on the computer, should be listed or cataloged in a notebook. This saves missing deadlines because you could not find what you wanted to submit.
Consider donating things you haven’t used in a while to a charity or giving to someone who could use it. Think of all the things you now use the computer or other technology for, and what is obsolete.
This is your room. Take a look as you get your office, studio, or space to the working way it should be. Is it really what you had in mind? If not, make a few changes until you are happy. Once you have the room set, also set a schedule to pick up and dust weekly. It may save having to do the whole thing again.
