This can include office supplies, calendars, schedules, and of course, a surface to work or place your laptop. The truth is, you can organize and arrange your command station how you want to maximize your home office productivity.
6. Maximize Your Office Storage Space
To put it bluntly, the more storage opportunities you can create, the better organized you can keep your office supplies. However, in limited spaces, finding the right amount of storage can be challenging. I suggest using shelving, office desks with built-in storage, or cupboards that can also be used as an extra shelf. It’s important to make your storage units blend into your office theme. This will help your office to look spacious and clutter-free.
7. Organize Your Thoughts with a Pinboard
Bulletin boards and pinboards are a great way to collate your daily thoughts and keep your desk organized and free from clutter. Adding a pinboard to your office setup will allow you to clearly identify important notes, documents, to-do lists, and anything you need to remember.
8. Keep Work Documents Organized with a Filing System
Office files and documents can be a messy nightmare! Take the time to organize your files into a filing cabinet system. This will keep your office desk tidy and paper-free, as well as allowing you to easily locate documents when you need them.
9. Double your storage space with Cubies
I absolutely love these cubies! This is the perfect way to add tons of storage for all your office supplies. You can see everything for easy locating; and access. They also come in a range of different sizes. Make sure you add some home office decor to your cubies to customize your room – plants, photo frames, and candles work well.
10. Label your office supplies for ultimate organization
I know this is unnecessary; however, if you’re an organization freak like me, labeling your draws, boxes, and folders is something you should consider. This makes finding the right document or office supply super easy. Plus, it’s so fun designing and printing labels!
11. Store your office supplies with box organizers
These office boxes and organizer ideas are perfect for storing your home office supplies, documents, and other miscellaneous items. This boxing will keep your office clutter-free and tidy at all times.
