Here are 4 things you need to get rid of asap:
You have no excuse holding onto old newspapers which collect dust and occupy unnecessary space unless you are a newspaper vendor or a meat seller. You should have a 2 day reading policy then get rid of them. Chances are, you won’t read them anyways.You should also apply this rule to magazines. If they exceed a month without you opening, trash it or take it home.
Get rid of pens despite how cute a it is and it has run out of ink or is broken, get rid of it if. Unless you intend refilling it which is unlikely opt to replace it.
If you don’t get in touch within a year or two, dispose off the business cards. Chances are you are not on the same business wavelength. In your day to day activities you will meet and network with so many people and realistically speaking, there is no way you can keep all those random cards.
Excessive office supplies
Having plenty of printing paper, staples etc makes sense. But having boxes of clips, sticky notes, rubber bands and glue does not especially when they are occupying so much office space. Give out some to a children’s home or school or store them away and only retrieve them when needed.
