Simple Tips to Optimize Your Storage Space

A well-decorated office may look intriguing. However, truth is that without a proper place to store office supplies, it gets messy very easily. With our wide variety of office storage supplies available, it’s easier than ever before to keep your office space looking spotless all the time. We use a number of techniques to maintain tidiness at our workplace. And through this blog, we decided to share some of our tried-and-tested methods with you, to help you with any office storage issues you may run into.

Tips & Tricks to Help Keep Track of Office Supplies

Here are some simple and efficient ways to fully utilize available space and make it easily accessible for everyone.

Prioritize

First and foremost, to keep everything in order and make the most of small storage spaces, it is necessary to prioritize. Items of everyday use should be easy to access, whereas important documents and folders are best kept in cabinets and closed cupboards.

Use a combination of open and closed storage options to keep your office tidy. Use shelves to display collections like books, awards and trophies.

For essentials, such as office stationery, use holders and sliding drawers that are easily accessible.

Sort Supplies

When an office is first set up, people often place items anywhere and everywhere. As a result, this ends up creating a clutter of unorganized items. To maintain a healthy environment, we recommend sorting the objects in your office from day one. Items that may not be needed often are best stored away in boxes. Valuables should be kept at the back of the unit and out of sight, while any items that you may need often should be at the front.

Fill each box as much as possible, without causing damage to the items, to maximize your space. Make sure you stock lightweight items in large containers and heavy ones in smaller boxes to keep weight evenly distributed. Square boxes usually work best to facilitate stacking and ensuring they stay in an orderly manner.

Always Use Labelling

Along with storing office supplies in containers, a great tip is to always label the boxes. Simply trying to remember what is kept in each box may not be the most reliable method, leaving others to guess what is where.  Labelling not only makes it easy for you to find the items yourself but it also helps others efficiently find what they need right away.

Sifting through each box to find a particular item can be frustrating and wastes precious time. Making labelling a time-saver.

How to Store Items to Make them Conveniently Accessible

It is a good practice to wrap items like furniture (dismantled for easy storage), mattresses and electronics, in an industrial-grade plastic wrap, to prevent dirt from impairing them.

Allocate sections of the storage room, if an entire rooms is available, to items of one category. For more convenience, each section can also be labelled.

Using these simple tips will not only save you precious time but will also ensure that your office supplies remain safe for an extended period. To get the best office storage supplies for your office, view our variety available at Crites & Riddell today!
