The Day Has Come to Get Rid of Your CLUTTER!
A guest blog post by Daniel Richman of The Domestic Assistants from the Ventura, California. He and his wife, Jennifer, are a whirlwind of energy and together they make up a tag team duo who “get the job DONE!
The day has come to get rid of your clutter….WHAT do you do?
Do you jump on the occasion? Rip, shred, and tear the junk away from your workspace?
Past, present, and sometimes even future (pending) paperwork goes into the mix. We all do it, I’m guilty.
So, what do YOU do?
Are you reliant on your desktop/laptop computer to store the information into a hard drive? Are you a file cabinet user? Do you just keep the papers as separate as possible until tax time?
Whatever you do, take it one step at a time. Make yourself a schedule, don’t let it get out of hand.
By that I mean, follow some kind of guideline, give yourself a little head start, and don’t be so mad that it drives you to ignore it. We’ve seen so many office spaces, some neat, others not-so-much.
The need for organization is present, but it’s so overwhelming.
There are dozens if not hundreds of programs out there to keep you somewhat “above water”. You could even find yourself a professional. Someone who knows where things go, and files them away for you. The problem we face is who to trust. People need to know that they can trust you. I always suggest a “consultation” before an actual appointment. This allows you some breathing room, a chance to meet the hired help, and if you don’t like them, give them the boot. It’s nothing to them, but common courtesy is always nice.
