Choosing To Move

Do you remember the last time you thought about moving? After living in our home for about three years, I realized that we wanted to get out into the world and see some other places, so we listed our place for sale. Making the decision to move was nerve-wracking but incredibly exciting, and I was really happy that we were able to make the choice to move. After we sold our place and relocated, it was incredible to experience new places, new things, and adventures that I had never dreamed of. Check out this blog for great reasons to move.

How To Thoroughly Organize Your Work Place

by Courtney Thompson

Are you focused on organizing your place of business? Perhaps you are remodeling or maybe you are moving into a brand new location. Either way, from selecting the right furniture to buying heavy duty plastic storage containers, here are some ideas that might help you.

Start With A Detailed Plan - Write down all of your ideas so the you can refer to them during the organization process. Consider having a meeting to get input from other workers.

  1. For example, you may have realized that there is too much stuff in each of the offices at your place of business. At your meeting, find out how much of it is actually needed right in the office. Think about buying heavy duty plastic totes for personal items that the workers don't need on a daily basis. 
  2. Evaluate what else can be put in storage. For example, if you have holiday items, like Christmas decorations, just stashed in a cleaning closet, you might want to buy plastic containers in which to store them.
  3. Do you have reference materials that you don't use often, but that you want to keep for later use? Think about storing them in stackable plastic containers which can be kept at a designated place.

Carry Out Your Plan - Have a meeting where you get all of your workers on board to create an organized work place.

  1. At this meeting, give out the plastic totes you have designated for each worker's personal items. Remind them to periodically organize their belongings so that the totes won't become catch-alls.
  2. Schedule a work day where you organize things in the office like the Christmas decorations, extra cleaning supplies, and umbrellas. Put all of those things in plastic storage containers so that they will be easily accessible, yet out of the way.
  3. Designate a safe place for the stackable plastic storage containers that will hold things like reference books, important files, and other things you want to keep out of the way.

The great thing about buying heavy duty plastic storage containers for your workplace is that they are not only affordable, but they are built to last. The things they contain will be safe from the elements and will be kept clean. Think about writing down the items you have placed in the storage containers so that you'll be able to easily access them. Another idea is to put a label on each container that tells what is inside.
