A workspace with loose documents is not only unsightly and inefficient. With identity theft and corporate espionage on the rise it’s also a security hazard. Now is a great time to declutter and get rid of unwanted documents the smart – and secure – way.
Step 1: Go Through It
Examine each document and decide if it’s a keeper or can be discarded. Some documents need to be kept for a certain period of time. Documents supporting tax returns, for example, must be retained for five years. Once a document’s ‘use by date’ expires, get rid of it.
Step 2: Go Digital
Scanning documents and storing digitally is a great way to bust clutter. Cloud services like Google Drive offer instant and reliable access to documents, with no worries about hard-disk failures.
Step 3: Get Organised
Creating a logical filing system lets you store and retrieve documents quickly. For tips check out this site:
Once you’re organised, make a daily workspace tidy-up part of your routine. Then once a month go through storage areas eliminating clutter and filing important documents.
