Getting Organized for the New Year

New Year, new me, right? Well, I’m trying! This is the year I am going to get my house organized, but first I am starting with my home office.

Setting up a home office does not have to be in a designated room. A home office can be a nook or alcove. You can use a folding screen if you don’t want your work space visible to the rest of the room.

Once you decide on a space there are so many products on the market to keep you organized. I am installing shelves on the wall above my desk. There I am placing fabric covered boxes to file my paper work in. I think it’s just more fun than using a file cabinet. Each box equals one file for home, insurance, car, etc. You can also choose baskets or bins to keep your paper out of sight which will give your home office a decluttered look.

Another good thing is a monitor stand. Not only does it raise your monitor to a comfortable eye level, but allows space for your phone, stapler, clips and coffee mug.

You can also add a cork board or white board on the wall to post immediate action items or write thoughts you are brain storming.
I’m off to the office supply store!
