Organize. Declutter. These are buzz words that you see in most home magazines. The Marie Kondo method, the minimalism movement, and feng shui are some of the things that have influenced how we take care of our homes.
But tidying up is nothing new. I can remember my own lola going about her day, briskly barking orders at househelps to keep the home clean. I don’t know about you but I really appreciate a clean home. It does not matter to me so much if the furnishings and the home are simple. One may have a mansion but if it is not clean, you can feel it, or worse, maybe even smell it.
This is a simple task at hand though. It is a way to organize your home office area (a.k.a. desk). Watch the video for the tips.
Make tidying up a part of your lifestyle. Organizing and decluttering are best done regularly, instead of making a mess to clean up at some later date. Chances are the cleaning up becomes such a big project that procrastination could be the reaction. This is the story of my life, and I can’t believe that it’s just me. Spring cleaning is great for the big clean-up, but a daily tidying-up ritual is the best way to go…before the molehill becomes a mountain (or several mountains).
A Millennial’s Perspective on Room Organization
Here’s a good post to read, written by a millennial on how she organized her room.
Her recommendation: CLAYGO, or Clean As you Go. She starts with saying to set manageable goals. One step at a time. So wise. I’ve looked at my mountains (of mess) for years (no kidding, I kind of gave up when the pandemic started), and have become overwhelmed. Do you know that it is easier each day to become blind to it all? So do listen to the wise millennial.
Organize Your Workspace
Need more tips on how to organize your workspace? Head on over to this post, again written by a millennial. This time he focuses on the workspace.
His main message is that minimalism is the key. No distractions! Don’t dump everything on your work desk. Non-work-related stuff should be kept in drawers or stored in containers. He even went as far as to say to also turn off your social media channels so you don’t hear all the pings while working.
