Get rid of everything that you don't want

Right from papers, to empty pens and even some knick-knacks that you don't use anymore, throw it in the dustbin. Put the papers at a place from where they can be recycled. If you have the habit of eating chips or little snacks, don't keep the wrapper lying around. Throw it in the dustbin after you are done with it.
