12 Days of Tips-mas, Day 12

We’re celebrating Tips-mas this year to give you the greatest gift we can this holiday season–more time. Click here to enjoy our 12 Days of Tips-mas from the beginning, and feel free to sing along as we share our tips each day.

Day 12

On the twelfth day of Tips-mas, my IT gave to me…

a workspace I’m proud of.

Have you ever heard of national Clean Off Your Desk Day? We hadn’t before researching this project. Apparently it’s celebrated on the second Monday in January and was designed to help clear the way for a new, more organized year ahead. So to make sure we’re all ready for it next year (it’ll be January 8, 2018), we’re using these tips to cut through the clutter and literally start fresh in the new year. Maybe you can even try a trick or two before heading off to vacation and come back ahead of the game.

Our Favorite Tip-Bit

We really like the simplicity of tip number 3. Office supplies can be so easy to accumulate, and this trick can show you exactly which ones you use on a daily basis (and probably more importantly, which ones you don’t).


Since this is the last day, we want to leave you with a little something extra. We hope you’ve enjoyed the variety of tips, whether you’re an Apple or an Android user, an office worker or home-based, just getting started or retired. We also hope you had a little fun along the way. So for one last laugh or two, we’ve got tips for holiday eating and a brief British guide for getting through the holidays. Merry Tips-mas!

With all sincerity, we wish you a safe, happy holiday season.
