Organizing a home office will help you become more effective and will bring a sense of order to your space. I have learned that organizing a home office takes time, but is totally worth the time invested. As you begin organizing a home office, use our ACT and SPARK organizing formulas.

Three Steps to Begin:

1. When you begin organizing a home office, you want to assess what tasks the office will be used for:

What activities will take place in the office?  What will be stored in the home office to support those activities?

2. Next, create a plan for organizing a home office:

Where will furniture storage pieces be placed?  Where will the paperwork and supplies be stored?

3. Then you begin the organizing process.

Here are some ideas to try as you move forward on organizing a home office space:

  • Make sure there are specific work areas.
  • Create storage places for supplies so the desk top is clear for everyday use.
  • Use drawer dividers to keep small materials and supplies separated.
  • Have a paper file for “need to be filed” papers on the desk.
  • Organize all cords
  • Use your wall space by putting in sturdy wall shelves.
  • A tack board or white board can be used to post important messages and reminders.
  • A file cabinet is helpful in keeping all important papers organized and contained.

    I found this quote very fitting “Don’t fear failure so much that you refuse to try new things. The saddest summary of a life contains three descriptions: could have, might have, and SHOULD HAVE.” — Louis E. Boone I had no idea how to organize my home office. NOW I do. I will now try.
