Use it or lose it: Getting into a ‘use it or lose it’ mindset helps us keep what we really use and throw away what we don’t.
The longer you stay at your job, the more stuff you’re going to collect over the years. If it’s not something you use often, file it away or toss it.
Cut back on paper copies: Are you one of those people who always has papers allllll over their desk? How many of those documents do you also have on your computer?
Unless you really need printed copies for your first job or internship , stick to digital and cutting back on paper copies.
Don’t forget to recycle (or shred) any copies you already have!

Pro tip: Wipe down your desk and phone weekly!
We feel better already, don’t you?
