Organize Your Home Office Day

Next Tuesday is Organize Your Home Office Day.  Whether you actually work at home or use a space in your home to keep track of paperwork, you need an area that functions well for you.  It doesn’t need to be large or fancy, just functional.  Here are some ideas for starting your home-office project:

* Make sure you really will work in the space you designate as an office.  If it’s dark or uncomfortable, you’re probably not going to want to spend time there.  Adequate light and comfortable seating are necessities.

* Keep in your office only what you need.  Don’t load up on supplies and materials because you “might use them someday.”

* Use technology whenever possible to reduce the amount of paper in your office.

* Limit the number of decorative items on your desk. You need plenty of room to spread out when you’re working on a project and you don’t want to have to move things around that get in your way.

* Remember that you don’t need every piece of paper at your fingertips.  Archives can be kept in a closet or in another room.  What you reach for regularly can be kept in a desk drawer or file box on top of your desk.

The photo of the office shown here is from my pinterest board.  You can find lots of great ideas for offices on pinterest.
