We’ve all been in this position – you have piles of old records, notebooks and magazines from years back that need cleaning out. Your home office is getting overrun with junk and it seems like more and more is piling up by the day, heck, by the hour.
You know that you should get around to cleaning it all up, sorting your things into a “disposables” and “essentials” category and getting on with your life. Somehow, though, life itself gets in the way. You’re either too busy with work or else shuttling kids to and from school. There simply aren’t enough hours in the day.
How a Junk Hauler Can Help
Literally your one-stop solution is a junk removal service that can help you get rid of your old paperwork, superfluous office supplies and crumbling furniture.
Junk haulers come into your home or workspace, remove what you tell them to, then leave you to get on with your life. Think of it as a helping hand to your spring cleaning efforts.
A junk removal service does all of this on your schedule and provides a convenient service window with text or email reminders on their impending arrival.
This kind of prompt service is invaluable when it comes to cleaning out your workspace’s office. You can do the right thing and have your old office equipment and electronic waste responsibly disposed while unburying yourself from all the clutter. A win-win.
Benefits of a Clean Workspace
Finally getting your desk clean, whether at your home office or remote office, is a truly energizing feeling and facilitates better work. A clean desk is both a cause and an effect of a razor-sharp mind.
- Fewer Distractions
You think better and more efficiently when there aren’t any distractions in your immediate vicinity and when you can get down to work.
The trick is knowing what to keep within arm’s reach, which items to stow away into drawers and what to have a junk hauler take off your hands.
It helps a lot of people to visualize their desk as real estate. Only keep around items that deserve to be there – i.e., items like a personal computer, phone, stapler, a cup for pens and maybe a coaster for your morning coffee. Keep it simple.
- Scrapping the Non-essentials
Keeping items that you deem what we’ll call level-two importance – things like forms that you make use of occasionally, tax returns or essential correspondences that you’ve made over the years – you should organize into clearly marked folders and stow away in your desk’s drawers. This ensures that your work area isn’t cluttered but that it still remains functional.
Really take a serious look at the clutter on your desk right now and ask yourself how much of it facilities your work and how much of it gets in the way. Consider letting a junk haul service get the latter items out of your hair.
Even look under your desk for boxes of forms that are just collecting cobwebs. Lastly, consider taking home personal items that you simply have laying around the office but really belong elsewhere.
Millions of Americans can attest to the benefits that cleaning their office has had on their professional lives. Having fewer distractions scattered about keeps your mind clear, improves productivity and it even presents a more professional image to clients who come into your workspace.
Before throwing away any documents, though, you might want to make a scan. On a more granular day-to-day level, try incorporating an in/out bin to organize incoming documents. For the rest, team up with Junk King-Marin.
