Staying organized

Does your office need a refresher?

Staying organized

Remember in the fall when you were excited to start the new school year? You organized your office, bought new supplies and stacked things neatly and efficiently. Does your office still reflect that kind of enthusiasm and dedication to your space? Most likely it isn’t still neat and tidy.

We did a little bit of legwork and went out to find some fun ways to perk up your organization. Here are two great ideas to get you excited about tidying up.

Label everything

First is the Brother PT-P700 Connectable Label Printer. This easy-to-use, full-featured label maker requires a USB connection and has the ability to create large, customized labels using a PC or a Mac computer. The built-in software supports easy sharing within a group or for use within strict IT environments where software installation is not permitted.

The printing is quick and it cuts each label automatically. The PT-P700 can even print from a database if you are working on a list of names for file folders.

Sometimes just labeling the folders you started this year or labeling the drawers of the filing cabinets that are already filling to the brim can be enough to organize the rest of your school year.

Start pinning

Our second suggestion is to use Pinterest. NextStepU started an Organization and Time Management board that you can find on our Pinterest page. If you use Pinterest, you can start your own organization board and re-pin some of our ideas. If you don’t use Pinterest, then you can visit the board and still click through to the ideas that are shared on there without saving them to your own account.

One of our favorite examples is a do-it-yourself pegboard organization station. It’s easy, customizable and gives everything floating around your desk a place to go. You can find ideas like this and more on Pinterest and you can pin this idea right from our organization board.

When it comes to organization, the first and most important part is to have the want and desire to be organized. Once you decide to take that on, the rest is easy — and actually kind of fun.

If you can find a half an hour a week to dedicate to organizing your desk or office space, you will be in a much better place when the school year ends. Packing up your office at the end of the year will be a breeze!
