Having a stack of ink cartridges, paper, stationery and half-empty cups of tea strewn around the office won't for a productive day make – you need to be more organised if you want to be truly efficient, one website has said.

According to, the first task you need to complete in order to get things ship-shape is simply to have a good old sort.

Group your office bits and bobs – like ink and toner cartridges, pens and pencils – into piles, and get rid of the stuff you definitely don't need, like those half-empty cups and food wrappers.

"Once that's done you can start putting things in places where they should be," the website says.

When it comes to documents, simply file them in alphabetical or date order; that way you know exactly where you need to go when you next want to find something.

And finally, a golden rule: don't let old habits die hard. Once you've cleared the desk, keep it that way.

"You'll only end up in the same situation further down the line and regret it," the website says.
