Spring Clean

Cheer yourself up! One Easy low cost solution

Here are some ideas for an office spring clean:

  • Archive, or even better, delete emails that have been sitting in your in-box for over six months.
  • Save attachments directly on to your hard drive.
  • Think about the paperwork you will need to keep, for tax and reference purposes, and shred the rest.
  • Invest in a shredder to prevent identity theft.
  • Back up your files and systems to an external hard drive or server and delete off your computer what you don’t use on a regular basis.
  • Delete the .tmp (temporary) files stored on your machine.  The more .tmp files you have, the longer it takes for your system to boot, print or load programs.
  • Gather all receipts and expenses and file appropriately.
  • Review your practices and procedures.
  • Throw out machinery that doesn’t work or items that haven’t been used in a while.
  • Be ruthless!

If you are wondering why I am recommending you do this, its because it doesn’t cost you anything and you will feel a hell of a lot better when it is done. There are not a lot of these activities available at the moment!
