As we get farther and farther into the new year, you might find yourself noticing the clutter around your office or business more, especially if you had some time off for the holidays at the end of the year. 

If you think your business could use a bit of a declutter or just could benefit from being cleared out, there are a bunch of approaches you can take to keep your space looking its best. Plus, after all, starting your year off with a clean and clear workspace has never been a bad thing, and can even help to make you more productive in the coming months!

Plus, let’s face it, clearing out or decluttering your space does wonders for your psyche and overall motivation. When your space is clean and orderly, you just feel better! So what are some tips for decluttering your office in 2022? Let’s find out!


Decluttering Your Business

The first step in any decluttering process is to eliminate or get rid of what you don’t need or use. This is true for any decluttering process, nevermind something on a larger scale like a business or office! Who knows what you could’ve accumulated over the past year (or since you last cleaned and re-organized!). 

So where do you start when it comes to getting rid of unnecessary items?  


Clear Out

Start with noticeably out of place items that cause considerable clutter. We’re talking take out napkins, stacks of unnecessary paper – the works! Toss them, shred them, or otherwise eliminate them. 

Organize your remaining items and make sure everything serves your business and efficiency. This can mean physical items (aka the ones you’re currently cleaning out), or more abstract ideas. What’s not serving your business, or maybe not making you any money? What’s costing you money? Take the time to take stock of your business and how efficiently its running. 



If you haven’t already, make sure to eliminate the papers and general mess in your business by making sure to digitize everything – and we mean everything! 

From client records, to internal communications, to physical bills, make sure everything is digitized and in automated form. It’ll not only help to declutter your space, but will keep your office so much more organized!


If you don’t have systems set up for managing bills, payroll, sending invoices, or the like, set up or invest in an automated system that will manage all of that for you. 


Put New Habits into Place

If there’s been something you’ve been either meaning to buy or implement in your business, now’s the time! From switching banks or account managers, to hiring new employees, now’s the time to do so! Get ahead on 2022 and be prepared for anything!

There’s never a better time to physically and professionally declutter your office than at the beginning of the year. Beat spring cleaning by decluttering your physical space, and digitize or figure out what your business goals are for 2022 before the winter blues are gone!
