What did you find? Unpaid bills? Expired coupons? Jimmy Hoffa?
The second Monday in January every year — it’s a day to:
• Catch up on filing — finish 2018 and set up new folders for 2019
• Fill staplers
• Check batteries
• Arrange paper clips by size
• Arrange pens and pencils by point sizes and ink colors
• Throw out stuff
• Anything to add to this list? If so, we’ll post it — email it to firstname.lastname@example.org
Although National Clean Off Your Desk Day shows up on various events calendars, we have not been able to find who started it and who sponsors it now. Many of these unofficial “days” are started and promoted by vested interests. They are often referred to as called “Hallmark Days.”
Who would start a day for cleaning off your desk — Lysol? When we look websites that mention the day, most are from professional organizers offering their services.
