With so many working from home right now, having a clutter free and organized home office is more important than ever.
Having a clutter free home office can lead to a more positive work life and productivity.
Follow these 5 steps to declutter your home office:
1. Remove What Doesn’t Belong
2. Declutter Paperwork
3. Declutter Your Desk
4. Invest In Storage Organizers And Furniture
5. Get A Self Storage Unit
First things first, go through your home office and get rid of everything that doesn’t belong in that room. It’s very common that the home office can become a dumping ground for items around your home. Make sure that everything in your home office has a “home”. It can be very difficult to be productive and efficient in a cluttered environment.
Go through and organize all paperwork. Over time, paper can pile up very quickly if not organized properly. Keep everything that is current or in use in a file cabinet in your home office. For older papers, such as tax documents, these cannot be thrown away, but you also don’t want them cluttering up your office.
Pick up some file boxes to store these documents and put them in a self storage unit. Storage units are safe and secure so you can rest assured that your documents are being protected.
Your desk is the most important part of your home office. It’s where all of the work gets done. This can also mean that it is the easiest to get cluttered and unorganized. Keeping your desk clean and organized is crucial for being efficient and productive.
Clean off the top of your desk and clean out all of the desk drawers as well.
Create spots on and in your desk for specific items. Give everything a home and do your best to always put things back where they belong. Doing this will also make it a breeze to find things when you need them.
The main reason most home offices become cluttered and disorganized is because there is not enough storage options. Invest in some shelves, file holders, drawer organizers and wall-mounted magazine racks to keep your office clean and organized. By investing in some storage organizers and furniture, you can keep your office in great shape year round.
Depending on what kind of business your home office is used for, you could have a large pile of files or inventory lying around. By renting a storage unit, you can store these items to keep them out of your office and keep it organized.
