Organizational Tips For Your Home Office
Keeping your home’s and all the items within it in a clean and organized fashion is a very important aspect of ensuring that your important documents remain in good condition. There are a number of things that you need to do in order to ensure that your home office stays organized. It’s nothing complicated – they’re simple and easy hacks that are great for you to use.
- Make sure that you never, ever let your papers pile up within your home office. When you realize that your paper is beginning to pile up, then you need to decide what you’re doing with each and every piece of paper. Decide if you’re going to shred/toss it, file it away or take some sort of action from it. Always try to keep your important paperwork filed in a color-coded system.
- Learn how to actually color-code your filing system. Use this as a template for a filing system with five color-coded categories. Use green for financial documents; use red for medical documents; use orange for personal documents; use yellow for insurance; use blue for house documents. Make sure to label all your folders accordingly.
- Maintain control of your incoming papers by creating a mail station for your office. It’s simply a number of different folders to cater for incoming/outgoing mail, mail to file, bills and more. Go through these folders and keep them organized daily.
- Designate a printing station in a space of your office for the printer and its supplies. If you have a wireless printer, you can place it further away from your desk, in a cabinet or on a shelf, to help conserve space.
- Use containers, baskets, drawers and bins to store your office supplies in and keep your office looking tidy.
- Label your files, boxes, and drawers, with a good label maker in order to organize your office.
- Place like items together by organizing them into categories to create a more functional office for yourself.
