If you’re drowning in paperwork and need to get organised, our five top tips can help!

Staying on top of your office organisation can seem like an uphill struggle. You just get your desk space nice and tidy and before you know it, it’s in a mess again. If you don’t want to feel like you’re constantly reorganising, you have to start from scratch, and put in place a sensible system that keeps you organised.

Thankfully, there are some really simple, common-sense thing you can do that, once implemented, will keep you organised forever, because it will be much easier to stay on top of things. With a solid foundation, you only ever have to make sure everything is put back where it needs to be at the end of the day.

Follow our top five tips to help make organising your office effortless and stress-free.

Five top tips for effortless storage in the office

1- Group similar materials together

This is one of those ideas that is so simple, you’ll wonder why you never thought of it before. In order to implement a sensible system for organisation, group similar materials together. The best way to do this is to completely clear your desk and office and start putting everything back.

This time, though, you’re going to sensibly group things together. Not only will this let you see how much you need to store (and how much you need to get rid of!) but grouping them together like this makes it easily for you to plan your organisation.

Create a station for mail items; stamps, envelopes and letters. Keep all your stationery in the one place. Put electronic equipment next to one another. Before long, your office will be organised in a sensible way. Looking for a stamp? No more rummaging in drawers; just head to the mail station in the office and you’ll find what you’re looking for.

2 -Use colour-coded organisation

We recognise visual cues much fast than we read titles and labels, so start organising your paperwork into files and folders that are colour-coded. ‘Green’ for invoicing, ‘Blue’ for client information, ‘Red’ for bills, for example. You’ll find what you need much faster if everything is grouped together.

3 – Create a printing station

Expanding on our first tip, we think it’s a great idea to create a whole separate station for printing. If you have a wireless printer you don’t even have to set this up in the same room as your office, but however you do it, create a station with your printer, paper reams, spare cartridges and any other consumables you need.

4 – Use a label maker

Buy yourself a good label maker and you’ll find it pays for itself in the time it saves you. Label paperwork, drawers, shelving; in fact, anywhere you store things, stick a label on it. It might seem like overkill at first but trust us, before long you’ll be labelling everything. They not only tell you where things need to go, they actually act as a reminder to use your storage, too.

5 – Invest in good furniture

Without the right furniture, you’ll never get properly organised. Choosing a desk that has a bookshelf section or has shelving built in above the work surface will help you to maximise space. If space is really at a premium, a corner or wall-mounted unit or a desk that can actually lift up and be locked in place when not in use could come in very handy indeed.

Cumulatively, they form a hard-wearing, durable finish, so makes wood furniture or wood flooring, for instance, last longer.
