Wanting to live and work in an organized, efficient space is not a new concept, but organizing sure has gone viral over the last year! TV shows, blog posts, YouTube videos, Pinterest boards… the office organizing trends for the year are everywhere. But do they work? And can they be applied to your office? This week I’m sharing three of my top blogs on the viral office organizing trends for 2019.
GO GREEN WITH OFFICE ORGANIZING STRATEGIES
It’s becoming clearer as time goes on that we must make moves to protect the Earth and be more conscious of the environment. This isn’t just something to do at home – eliminating waste, composting, changing light bulbs, etc. These are all important tasks, but there are also actions we can take in the office to go green and conserve our planet. Want to give it a try? Read more here.
LEARNING TO SPARK JOY IN YOUR WORKSPACE
The concept of items in your home “sparking joy” has become very popular thanks in part to Netflix and the show “Tidying Up with Marie Kondo.” The general idea that Kondo shares is that you should limit your possessions to those that bring you joy. This idea of surrounding yourself with that which makes you happy applies to more than just your home – it can apply to your office, friendships and your relationships. I’ve seen firsthand how creating a clutter free, organized workspace can bring both joy and productivity to your day. Learn more here.
IS THE DIY APPROACH TO ORGANIZING FOR YOU?
Have you ever binge watched a good HGTV marathon? Or maybe DVR’d your favorite organizing show? Social media and television have inspired many to dive in and declutter their homes, their closets, and even their offices. Organizing projects that had previously been put aside are now front and center as organizing is becoming a DIY (do-it-yourself) project for some. But is this approach for everyone? I discuss it here.
