Whether you’re an office manager with an overflowing supply closet, a project manager whose car has turned into a makeshift office, or a business owner who would like to reclaim your guest bedroom, there’s one thing you know for sure: space is at a premium.
Putting these top 10 items in storage will help free your business from clutter so you can focus on the important things:
Even as we move into the digital age, every business has a plethora of paper files that can’t be disposed of for legal reasons. HR records, old data, and bookkeeping files don’t have to stack up in the corner of your office.
It seems like extra keyboards, monitors, and cables have a way of multiplying, but they’re worth hanging on to.
As employees come and go, the configuration of your office changes. Because of this, almost every office has excess furniture lying around. Desks and chairs can be expensive, so there’s no reason to get rid of them when you know you’ll use them later.
- Project Materials
If your job site isn’t monitored outside of working hours, you know how important it is to keep extra project materials safe and secure.
- Excess Inventory
It’s important to have extra inventory on hand, not to mention the savings you get when ordering in bulk. Whether that inventory is for your retail store or for your home business, there’s no need to let it take over your space.
- Trade Show or Conference Displays
Trade show and conference booths can be bulky, but they’re an investment you’ll likely use time and time again.
- Promotional Items
Speaking of trade shows and conferences, those samples, demos, and giveaways are a valuable part of your business’s marketing experience, but they can also be a space hog.
- Employee Materials
You’re always ready to onboard the right person, but those employee manuals, handbooks, and uniforms take up space.
- Seasonal and Party Items
Every year, businesses spend an extraordinary amount of money on celebration items. Whether they’re for holidays, retirement parties, or birthdays, there’s no reason those decorations can’t be used again.
Professional equipment takes up a tremendous amount of space. Whether you’re in the medical field, technology trade, or almost any other industry, you likely have pricey equipment that needs a secure place to stay when not in use.
