The warming weather means the time for spring cleaning is just around the corner. Use this time of year as an opportunity to de-clutter and de-junk your veterinary practice—your team members and clients will thank you. Here are some tips for getting rid of unnecessary clutter in your practice:
> Donate or recycle old computers and other electronics.
> Get rid of your big, clunky filing cabinets and go paperless with document management software and desktop scanners.
> Shred your old documents and paper files.
> Setup desk organizers to organize and paper files or documents you must keep.
> Reduce, reuse and recycle with recycling cans.
> Remove dust and coffee ring stains from your desk.
Now that you’ve de-cluttered your practice, what do you do with the extra space? Consider adding in new furniture to create an inviting atmosphere for your clients. Add a water cooler in place of a filing cabinet and bring in small plants to brighten up the office and clean up the office air.
