What are ways that someone can plan to declutter their desk?
You can use the little desktop paper trays, and or post it note holders. Target, Five Below, Walmart and Amazon have these, and honestly since we’re home and most things are digital…I clear out my paper piles (notes included) at the end of every week
How does cleaning up your office space help with productivity?
Cleaning up your office area, literally helps clear up your thoughts. I can’t think straight if there’s clutter all around me, or I’m scrambling to find things. So having everything in it’s place makes it easier to move through your tasks.
What are 5 must-have items that can help facilitate organization?
My Notes app on my phone, my reminder app on my phone, Post it notes to quickly jot down thoughts or notes, a storage cabinet or shelf of some kind..those are it for me honestly.
