NATIONAL CLEAN OFF YOUR DESK DAY, JAN. 10; HOW TO ADVICE FROM PROFESSIONAL ORGANIZER

 OLD GREENWICH, Conn., Dec. 29 /PRNewswire/ -- When was the last time you saw the top of your desk?
 If you've been waiting for the right time to clean off your desk and sort through the maze of paperwork, files, and junk mail, you don't have to wait any longer. Monday, Jan. 10 is National Clean Off Your Desk Day.
 "Start the New Year with an organized desk, office and home," says Lucy Hedrick, professional organizer. Instead of shuffling through the stacks on your desk, looking for that all important file, you can become more efficient and productive by organizing your desk.
 "Although National Clean Off Your Desk Day is celebrated one day each year, you can make it the beginning of an organized lifestyle that will carry through your everyday professional and personal life," says Hedrick, author of Five Days To An Organized Life (Dell, $8.95, at book stores or by calling 800-ALL-BOOK).
 Hedrick offers the following tips that will help you clean your desk now and keep the top visible after Jan. 10:
 -- Schedule routine paperwork tasks on your calendar. Deposit receipts, answer letters, and pay bills on specific days each month.
 -- To reduce paper piles of "pending" items, use a "tickler file" for papers that require action on a specific date.
 -- If you'd like to eliminate a lot of the junk mail you receive, send your name, address and phone number to: DMA Mail Preference Service, 11 West 42nd Street, P.O. Box 3861, New York, N.Y. 10163-3861. The Direct Mail Association will take your name off the address lists that they sell.
 "It's never too late to get organized and your desk is a good place to start," says Hedrick.
 Hedrick's books, Five Days To An Organized Life (Dell, $8.95), 365 Ways To Save Time (Hearst Books, $10), and 365 Ways to Save Time With Kids, (Hearst, $10) are currently available in book stores, or by calling 800-ALL-BOOK.
