Workspace Organization 101

The first week of October is “Get Organized Week,” and while many of us take the time to organize at home, we don’t invest time organizing at the office. While a cluttered and unorganized desk might not seem like a problem, the mess can take away from your focus and productivity. Check out these tips of how you can clean up your workspace and maximize your efficiency.

Eliminate unnecessary things 
From old scratch paper to pens that are out of ink, there are many unneeded objects that can quickly fill up your desk. More clutter means less space for items of importance, such as a desk calendar, relevant work documents or just space to sprawl out and work. While that post-it about a meeting may have been a necessary reminder two weeks ago, it probably doesn’t need to be on your desk anymore. Get rid of it along with anything else that you don’t need to leave room for things you do need.

 Have what you need in arm’s reach 
What supplies do you use most at work? Items like writing utensils, notepads and a stapler are probably things you frequently use at your desk, so why not make them easy to access? If you have a job that requires you to do math, it doesn’t make any sense to have your calculator located out of reach in a place like your bottom desk drawer; it should have a place on your desk that makes it easy to find and use. To tidy up your most frequently used office items, you may want to consider investing in desk organization so every sheet of paper and every paperclip have an easy-to-access home.

Keep your days organized, too 
Having a planner or desk calendar is a great way to keep your meetings, tasks and other important to-dos in order. Instead of writing a post-it for every meeting or deadline, your calendar will keep all of your to-dos in one place. There are also electronic tools like Google Calendar, Google’s free online calendar that allows you to access your schedule on any device that has Internet access. If you have a bad habit of forgetting or losing your planner, give Google Calendar a try!

Document organization 
Whether the majority of your documents are on your computer or in file folders, it is crucial to keep all of your documents organized all the time. If you are misplacing papers or just shoving them in your drawer, try a new form of organization. Color coded or manila folders are a great way to keep your paper documents organized and will help make sure nothing gets lost again. It is equally as important to organize your computer documents and there are many ways to do this. If you have many different clients, create a folder for each client within your “My Documents” folder. Another option is to organize your documents by date. This way, you won’t have to sift through hundreds of documents to find the one you’re looking for.

Being organized at work is crucial, so take these tips in to consideration the next time you find your desk cluttered! How do you keep your desk organized? Comment below or share with us on our Facebook page!

Fun Ways to Celebrate Halloween

Candy corn, ghosts, jack-o-lanterns and black cats can only mean one thing… Halloween is almost here! It’s always fun to dress up and go trick-or-treating on Halloween, but the team at Tiger Leasing thought we’d share some other fun ways to celebrate this spook-tacular season:

Trick or treating for a cause 
It’s fun to go trick-or-treating, but wouldn’t it be double the fun to go trick-or-treating while also raising money to help others? Unicef makes that a possibility! Trick-or-treat for Unicef is a charity effort and campaign to end the suffering of kids around the globe where instead of trick-or-treating for candy, you trick-or-treat for coins. Teach your kids the value of helping others this Halloween or go with a group of your friends to raise money for Unicef.

Terror-tastic movie party 
This Halloween, pop a bowl of popcorn and pop in a scary movie! The Chicago Tribune recently released a list of the top 25 Scariest Halloween movies so if you’re looking for a fright, pick a movie from this list to watch on Halloween night. Be sure to invite some friends over for your scary movie-thon…you won’t want to be scared while you’re alone!

Creepy crawly scavenger hunt 
Scavenger hunts are fun any time of the year, but the spookiness of Halloween makes for a perfect time for a creepy crawly scavenger hunt! Many people thing scavenger hunts are just for kids, but you can create them for people of all ages. Check out these ideas for an adult scavenger hunt:
Gather things that look like:
  • a spider
  • a spider web
  • an eyeball
  • a crooked finger
  • werewolf fur
  • a bird's claws
Gather things that sound like:
  • bones cracking
  • the wind
  • a screech
  •  a hammer
  • nails scratching 
  • a ghost

After each scavenger hunt team brings as many items as they can from your list, give prizes to the team with who has the best or most items from the original list!

Have a monster mash at work
This year, Halloween falls on a Wednesday so why not bring the party to the office? A week or two before Halloween, coordinate with other employees to have an office party where everyone brings some Halloween party food and dresses up. Don’t forget to have everyone vote for the best costume!

A night of fright
What better time of year to tour a haunted place than Halloween? Haunted Places in America features castles, houses and more across the country that are said to be haunted and give information on each place as well as a link to each destination’s Website for more details. If you’re looking for a night of fright, check out one of these featured haunted places.

From ghouls and bones to tomb stones, Halloween is one night of the year where we’re all looking for some fear! How do you plan to celebrate Halloween? Let us know with a comment below or share with us on our Facebook page.
