How to Start 2018 with a Clean Desk

January 11, 2018
If a messy desk is a sign of a cluttered mind, consider decluttering and celebrate National Clean Off Your Desk Day on January 11 with Dollar General! Check out these tips and ideas on how to rid your desk of any clutter you may have accumulated in the last year.

Keep note of what you use
Keep track of the items you often reach for and the items that begin to collect dust on your desk. If it’s not used daily, store it in a bin or drawer away from the desktop to help keep your workspace neat. Stop by Dollar General to select from a wide assortment of totes and bins for your office space, like this trueliving® Storage Tote.

Keep the sticky notes to a minimum
If you’re constantly sticking notes around your computer screen, this may start to get distracting. Consider purchasing a small dry erase board to hang near the desk that will help keep tab of reminders, deadlines and tasks. Not only will the board keep your desk clutter to a minimum, it may also help reduce your paper waste.

Purchase desktop organizers
Items like pencil holders, stadium files and magazine butlers may help in creating a home for everything on your desk. Check out your local Dollar General or go online to find organization products that will hold items and files you frequently use within reach. Be sure to leave free space on your desktop to keep your workspace free for writing and typing.

Tidy up daily
Take a few minutes each day before you leave the office to clean up. This will help you start the next day with a clear head and maintain a clean desk.
Also consider getting organized on a budget by signing up for Dollar General’s Digital Coupons Program that provides customers with an easy-to-use platform to redeem digital coupons.  Sign-up today by clicking here, visiting or accessing coupons on the Dollar General mobile app!
