Get Set: Plan Your 30-Minute Clean-Up

Before you start, take a moment to plan. This isn’t just about dusting off your desk. It’s about making your workspace a place where you can be more efficient. Here’s what you need to do:

  • Set a timer for 30 minutes. This will help you stay focused and work quickly.
  • Gather your supplies: trash bags, paper shredder, cleaning spray, and cloths.
  • Think about what you want to achieve. More desk space? A cleaner computer area?

Go: Quick Declutter

  • Look at your desk. Start with the big stuff you don’t need and put it straight in the trash or recycling bin.
  • Paperwork can pile up. If you don’t need it, shred it. If you do, file it away neatly.
  • Keep essential items within easy reach and everything else stored away.

Sanitize: Your Health is Important

We know germs love to hang out on keyboards and door handles. Take your antibacterial spray and give them a good wipe down. It’s quick and goes a long way in keeping you healthy.

Organize: A Place for Everything

  • Have a home for your pens, notepads, and other supplies. A tidy desk means a more organized mind.
  • Cable management can be a game-changer. Use clips or ties to keep them untangled and out of the way.

Keep It Up: Regular Speed Cleaning

Once you’ve made your workspace sparkle, keep it that way. Take five minutes at the end of each day to tidy up. It’ll make your next speed cleaning even faster.
