The process to organize your office is to first identify what is important and then prioritize into categories. There are 5 process categories to organize your office. They are recycle, shred, current, reference and historical.
Recycle and Shred Process
Begin by making a decision to keep it, recycle it, or shred it for all your documents. Ease into the process by dividing into two piles. One pile is for your recycling material, the other is for shredding confidential material.
Recycle material is all your generic information for example newspapers, magazines, vouchers, advertisement flyers, anything considered safe for public viewing. Magazine and newspapers can also be donated to interest groups.
