5 Tips to Help You Keep Your Home Office Organized

Your office at home is important to your business. If you can’t find important documents or your office desk is too cluttered to be able to undertake any paperwork, it’s time you got things in order to make working at home easier. The best way of decluttering your office is to keep things organized and create places for everything you need. Here are five top tips that will give you the home office that you’ve always wanted.

Keep Your Home Office Organized

1. Label Everything

You can never have enough rolls of labels at your disposal when you have an office at home. Invest in a good label maker and purchase Dymo address labels so you can label everything. This doesn’t mean you have to label items such as your computer screen to let you know it’s a computer screen, it just means you should consider labeling the different drawers of your filing cabinet, or the various folders and boxes you have in your office. It will make finding important documents much easier and you’ll find that efficiency is much higher when you’re working.

2. Keep Documents Color-coded

While labeling your folders, boxes and filing cabinet drawers will let you know what’s what, you should still color-code important files and folders so you know exactly what you’re looking for. You can use a green folder for anything financial, a red folder for personal affairs, and a blue folder for insurance documents – the list goes on.

3. Create a Shredding & Printing Station

Make room for your shredder so you can shred unimportant documents once you’ve built up a reasonably sized stack. Once you’ve read a document and it’s not worth keeping, neatly stack those documents in a pile so you can shred them later. It’s also wise to create a station for your printing needs so you can easily print and label documents ready to be posted without having things lying around.

4. Invest in a Filing Cabinet

A home office isn’t a home office without a good filing cabinet for you to keep your documents organized. With a filing cabinet, you’ll be able to keep your different document types in separate drawers, or you’ll at least be able to separate them by using the color-coding method stated above.

5. Store Accessories in Containers

If you have a variety of pens you need to keep, invest in a good pen pot to hold them together so you can keep them all in one place. Invest in multiple containers for other accessories such as staplers, hole-punchers, markers, blank paper etc. If you keep accessories together you’ll know exactly where they are when you need them, instead of them being piled on your desk where you need room to work.

An office environment needs to be clean and decluttered. If you can work more efficiently, you’ll be able to get more done, which is the main benefit of having a home office that is clean and well-organized.

5 Reasons for Being Disorganized and How to Change That

Organizing can be a really bothersome task, unless of course you happen to be one of those people who really like a place for everything and everything in its place. Anyone who happens to struggle with the issue is probably aware that staying organized over long periods of time can be a real challenge. 

Clutter is not only pretty unpleasant to behold, but it is also something that closely reflects our mental state and what we do with our lives at any given moment. Staying organized will take discipline and persistence or else you will be facing a truly chaotic situation. 

reasons for being disorganized

There is no storage solution that will be universal, so you will need to consider different solutions to the problem if you want to avoid the worst of it. You will need to get down to brass tacks and figure out the underlying cause for all of this by addressing and solving it:

 Disorganization as a habit

If this is the case, then your disorganized state will be a bad habit you may have developed as time goes by. When it comes to habitual disorganization manifesting then that is a behavior that could be categorized in different ways: stacking, piling, stashing, hiding and so much more. 

If you happen to suffer from this then you will need to understand how it becomes a part of your daily habits. The real issue in most cases is that it becomes a part of our personality and we stay disorganized for the rest of our lives if we don’t do something about it. You’re the only one who can make a difference, so do that now and not later. End procrastination and get to work on house clearance and decluttering today.

• Setting up a system

There is no denying that it requires discipline to stay organized, but you cannot do that without forming a habit. Doing that will require you to prepare for it well ahead of time with a good system of organizing, such as getting used to working on a room by room basis for organizing purposes. 

disorganized tips

Start small and work your way from there, setting up different groups of items meant for different purposes. A good example of that would be one pile where you place items meant for donations during decluttering, one for selling purposes and one for items you will actually keep. This phase is extremely important, as it will let you make the job easier further down the line as time goes by.

 Working with professional clearance companies

This should let you handle everything in a really unique way, as they will give you the edge you need to make your organizing easier, especially if you plan on this as something you want to do every year. Get around to it, scout the market for potential clearance companies and see which one has the best track record out there to make your organizing efforts easier than ever.

Now that you know the reasons for being disorganized and you were also given certain solutions, I hope that you will be able to find the answer of how to do away with clutter and I also hope that your chores and other activities will be more successful because of being organized.
