The Credenza

The bookcases are organized. There is some empty shelf space remaining. (This is okay and does not need to be covered with anything!) Extra space allows for future growth. The next area to address, as you clear the way toward your primary desk, is the credenza.

Empty one drawer at a time and wait to tackle the files in the deep drawer until everything else is finished. Place all note pads, Post-it®s and office supplies in one drawer. Place in-house mailing envelopes in another drawer. Keep only one week’s supply of envelopes in your desk. If you have dedicated a drawer for items to read, one credenza drawer given over for this purpose is useful. (More information on managing reading is in Section 8, page 76.) Your dictionary, other frequently used reference manuals, logs and directories, would be appropriate on the shelves inside the credenza. Oversized computer printouts, catalogs that need to be closer than your bookcase and some small equipment can also be stored here. Be cautious. Just because it has doors on it does not mean that clutter can hide here.
