We are still in the office this week taking care of our drawers.
Below is my office drawer journey. Play along with your own desk drawer.
STEP 1 - Take a before picture (if you dare)
Here is my before picture of my actual desk drawer at work.
Step 2 - Pull everything out of the drawer and group like with like.
|Everything was in that little drawer.|
Step 3 - Review and make decisions: keep, trash, move.
|Everything categorized: trash, move, keep.|
|TRASH: Old receipts, small paperclips (which I HATE), |
old pens and old "thank you" notes (will buy new ones).
|MOVE: I'm paperless so I didn't need the binder clips or letter opener. They got moved to the central office supply center on our floor. I gave the book to a colleague. The microphone got placed with the rest of the AV equipment.|
|KEEP: Ensured I only had items that |
were working/useful and needed.
|SUB-SORTING: I even "sub-sorted" my push pins. |
I only kept a small subset of my favorite color.
Again, I'm paperless so only a few push-pins are needed.
