If you seek out the proper help and just focus on one project at a time you can have your office space cleared in no time.
Working in a Clean Space
Studies show that clutter leads to damage mental hygiene and taking the time to clean your office can help. In fact, those who clean a space often see benefits in other parts of their lives as well and it can even help people better focus on their overall health.

Use Space More Effectively
What people do with their workspaces changes over time, but people often fail to reconsider how they’re using their space. Use cleaning as an opportunity to reevaluate your day-to-day working. Can some of the reclaimed space be put to better use? Is it worth moving certain furniture? Cleaning provides an opportunity to make changes that would otherwise be impossible, so don’t let the opportunity slip by before clutter starts to accumulate again.
The process of determining what to remove can feel overwhelming, and this causes many people to avoid doing so. Deciding what to keep and what to throw away is mentally difficult, but going through the process can also feel rewarding once you’re done. Take some time to think about how you can simplify your day-to-day activities, and toss out or recycle items you don’t need. Doing so can help you feel motivated when you show up in the morning.
Clutter can feel like an insurmountable burden at times, but time and hard work can go far. While it might require a significant investment, schedule a day or two to go through your items and decide what to keep and what can be thrown away. The benefits make the efforts worthwhile and will help you find success and motivation.
