The New Year clear up

By Paperstone on January 1, 2023 in Uncategorized

January brings with it a fresh page. It’s a great time to clear out, organise and re-set before 2023 gets in full swing. So, today we’re sharing our top tips and product recommendations to make this happen.

Shred it

If you have any confidential documents that you don’t need to keep, now’s a good time to shred them. Shredders come in a variety of security levels P-1 is for documents you don’t need to keep confidential eg junk mail up to P-6 for ultra-secure, top secret documents. To be GDPR compliant a shredder needs to be P-3 rated or higher.

Recycle it

Sort any waste to make it easy to recycle what you can. We stock a range of recycling bins to help you with this. We love these Addis bins which are colour coded and easy to use.

File it

File any documents you need to keep in a filing cabinet. If you need to order more suspension files don’t be a fool(scap) – check which size suspension files you need first. They come in A4 or Foolscap size which are slightly bigger. A4 suspension files sit on runners that are approximately 34.5cm apart while foolscap suspension files sit on runners that are approximately 40cm apart so best to measure up before you order.

Store it

Archive storage

Anything you need to keep but don’t need access to regularly (maybe the office Christmas decorations?) can be stored in archive storage boxes. We love the Really Useful range – perfect for the New Year clear up.

Clean it

Once you’ve finished your clear up it’s a good time to clean so you start 2023 fresh. We love a multi-purpose cleaning spray here at Paperstone HQ. Ideal for a quick wipe around surfaces. If you’re feeling green you could choose the Ecover plant-based multi-surface cleaner spray. Or there’s the classic Pledge multi-surface cleaner. We have all your office needs covered with our range of cleaning essentials.
