Spring Cleaning Tips with The Productivity Pro & Fellowes

Spring Cleaning Tips from Laura Stack, aka The Productivity Pro.

It’s spring which for many of us means it’s time to organize and clean our home. Winter clutter has completely taken over my home especially my home office. Working from home has its perks, but it also can make for a disastrous amount of clutter. I am sharing spring cleaning tips from Laura Stack, aka The Productivity Pro. Today the unorganized piles are getting an overhaul with Fellowes P-12C and Laura Stacks’ spring cleaning tips.

Spring Cleaning Tips from Laura Stack, aka The Productivity Pro. 

Tackle the clutter

  • Prepare for a spring cleaning spree. Start by labeling five large boxes: Put Away, Give Away, Store Away, Shred, and Trash. Select one room and break it down into sections, such as a drawer or desk to organize first. 
  • Use a timer. Don’t view spring cleaning as an all-day task. Take an hour here and there to get the job done over several weekends. When you’re ready to begin, set your timer for 50 minutes. When it buzzes, use the last ten minutes of your organization session to handle the boxes: put things away, place charity items in the car, put items in storage, shred and toss out the trash.
  • Focus. Concentrate on organizing one area at a time. If you don’t focus, you’ll end up with multiple “half-organized” areas.

2. Set a plan to keep areas clean all year-long.

  • Innovative storage. Anything that goes together should be stored together. Find attractive boxes, baskets, toolboxes and totes to organize common items such as batteries, make-up, tools, cleaning supplies or gift-wrap. Use duffel bags to store sports equipment – one sport per bag per person.
  • One in, one out. As you group similar items together, avoid keeping too many of the same items.  Do you really need five spatulas or dozens of sweaters? The next time you think about purchasing something you already own, give serious thought as to what are willing to give up.

3. Let go of all the clutter! 

  • Shred sensitive documents.  Paper piles can stack up fast around the house so shred sensitive documents with a reliable Fellowes shredder.  For large shredding jobs, the Fellowes 79Ci is the ultimate shredding machine. With its Patented 100% Jam Proof technology and ability to cross-cut up to 16 sheets per pass and an extended 20 minute run time, your paper piles will disappear in no time! Or, for smaller shredding jobs, try Fellowes P-12C that destroys 12 sheets per pass with a 5 minute run time.
  • Tag items. If you’re still having a hard time parting with certain things such as clothing or kitchen gadgets, place a tag on each item with the date one year from now. If you use the item, take the tag off. When that date arrives, anything that still has a tag goes. 
  • Donate. For items you want to get rid of that are still in good condition, consider donating to charity. While it can be tough for your little one to donate toys or for your husband to let go of his beloved CD collection, they’ll feel good knowing someone will benefit from these items.
