Oh Hiya! Meg here, and I’ve decided that this upcoming 2016 year will be the year of the filing cabinet. Filing plays a big role in office productivity and this is the year to take a good look at your system.
Desktop Revamp- If you’re anything like me, you keep a few too many files sitting out on your desk. I have to remind myself that they make filing cabinets for a reason! I start my filing reorganization with my desk and work my way out.
Divide and Conquer- Take a look at those files you’ve found on your desk and sort them out. Some of them may need to be worked through immediately and some may have a longer deadline. Sort the files into separate files with clearly marked deadlines to keep you organized and on task!
Label It- After you sort the files label them! Everyone has different organizational techniques so take some time to figure out a smooth system that works for you. Try to keep it simple; more complicated systems tend to get too extensive and you won’t be as motivated to stay organized.
Find a Filing Cabinet- I can’t tell you how much my system improved after I upgraded to a HON-694LP cabinet. Gone are the days of struggling with file drawers and squeaky hinges. It’s easy to stay organized when I have such a sleek cabinet to hold all my files!
Congratulations, you’ve conquered the file cabinet! Your new filing system will make that everyday, humdrum task of filing into the easiest thing you’ll do all day.
