Organisation tips: Avery Labels and Managing Emails

Who wouldn’t love to have an organised office space? Imagine a streamlined work area with everything within easy reach, or accessible when you need it. Files, folders and reports from certain dates could be produced upon request without any frantic searching.

In this ideal office your email inbox would be empty, tasks would be completed on a timely basis and all the files on your computer would be neatly arranged by date and subject.

While achieving maximum organisation is possible for some, for most of us staying organised at the office takes daily effort. By keeping a few small filing tips in mind we can make this goal a bit more attainable.

Arrange your files correctly

The name of this game is easy retrieval. Not being able to find a file will result in immediate frustration on your part and that of any person who may be requesting it. This is only made worse if you’re pressed for time.

Avery Labels

Label your files using broad headings and keep the contents inside in alphabetical or chronological order. This way if you need to find, for example, your expense report from January 2010, you’ll know exactly where to look. You can use Avery labels as a great tool for helping identify any file’s contents.

Use your files!

Having files is all well and good, but you have to make sure your documents are properly filed away in them. Set aside a few minutes every day to go through the papers on your desk and file things away in their place. This will eliminate clutter from view and keep you from searching through piles when you need something.

These filing tips may seem like common-sense measures but a great many of us simply don’t put them into practise. Make a commitment to staying organised and you’ll thank yourself later. Office Allsorts carries a great variety of Avery labels and other products to support you in your efforts.
