When is what you have too much? I’ve been thinking about this while watching the A & E television show Hoarders for the last few months. While not all of us go to extremes with collecting or have a mental health condition that makes us hoard and acquire too much stuff, we all do have too much of something. This “too much” hangs out in our office and workplace. Likely storage places for our excess are desk drawer, office cabinets and in the bookshelves. Now’s a good time to streamline your workspace and get rid of the excess.
Business trade magazines
Old business cards and outdated stationery
Examples (items saved to give us ideas)
Media we have no longer have the ability to “read” – Floppies, Videotapes
Software and clip art we no longer desire to use
Dried out markers and pens
Novelty items from vendors
Old breath mints and lotion
Spend some time over the next week, culling the excess, you will be glad you did.
