Following on from our August Productivity Tools & Tips, this month's hot topic focuses around the thorny subject of office organisation and clutter.

As the days become longer, our diaries start to fill with opportunities to meet and greet. Conferences, trade shows, workshops and networking events crowd our days, not to mention weekends filled with weddings and parties.
