If you remember last year's The Perfect Workspace Contest, you'll likely remember one of our best entrants, Sayeh Pezeshki (aka, The Office Stylist). We just noted one of her latest before and after projects perfectly illustrates the effectiveness of the "three piles technique" when cleaning up a cluttered workspace...The project shows how simply making three different piles, categorized by "toss", "keep" and "maybe" can be an effective tool for occasionally trimming down the clutter ontop of your desk. And as Sayeh points out, the process only requires a few minutes per day once you do your 1st deep cleaning. Check out the detailed before and after photos and descriptions over at the Turnstone blog.
Nobody can argue Sayeh doesn't practice what she preaches, as shown by her own home office setup.
