When Diane Albright says you're losing it, she's not talking about your mind. She's talking about your time and money--and she's talking about a lot of it. Albright, a certified professional organizer and owner of All Bright Ideas, citing a survey by Brother International, reports that the average worker wastes close to two weeks a year searching for things she or he has lost or misplaced, resulting in thousands to hundreds of thousands of dollars in business losses depending on the size of your business. Other surveys suggest that the numbers, both in lost hours and lost dollars, are even higher. And in today's economy, these are numbers we can't afford to get buried under.
So here are 8 easy-to-implement organizational tips that Albright recently shared with Working Mother that should not only save you some time, they should also help you become more organized and more productive at work.
