Organizing your workspace can save a significant amount of time. Studies have shown that an organized workspace can increase productivity by up to 30%. Additionally, a cluttered workspace can lead to distractions and mistakes, which can further delay your work. Taking the time to organize your workspace can help you work more efficiently, reduce stress, and save time in the long run.

If you're strapped for time or just don't know where to start, pick one of the suggestions below. You'll be inspired to do more as you experience the difference a little organization can make.

Sort & Categorize

Start by sorting through everything on your bench and categorizing them into groups. Keep in mind the items that you use most often, and those that you only use occasionally.

We suggest starting with pens, paperclips, highlighters, and other incidentals as the easiest way to see quick results.

Write Reminders & Notes Where You'll See Them

Writing reminders and taking notes is easier than ever when using whiteboard trays and dry-erase boards.

Say Goodbye to the Junk Drawer

Use drawers to store items that you don't need to access regularly. This will free up space on your bench and make it less cluttered. 

To keep your drawers as organized as your benchtop, be sure to use drawer organizers to keep contents sorted and organized.

Maximize Surface Space with Containers

Group similar items together in labeled containers to keep them organized and easy to find. Clear plastic containers work well as they allow you to see what's inside, or use colorful bins to color-code your supplies.

We suggest stackable bins, risers, and wall-mounted panels to expand storage space vertically, rather than horizontally. 

Organize Tubes, Caps & Other Laboratory Supplies

Easily sort and organize lab supplies with fixed-compartment benchtop organizers, or for a more versatile storage option, bins with adjustable compartments can be reconfigured to meet your needs.

Clean & Sanitize

 Regularly clean and sanitize your benchtop with disinfectants to prevent contamination and to maintain a clean work environment.
