Tips To Organize Your Home Office!

Tips To Organize Your Home Office!
by BB Lee(C)2003

550 words

You search your desk frantically for an important file.
An email you printed only moments earlier is lost under stacks
of overflowing files. The telephone is ringing, but you
can't reach it because you are at your fax machine retrieving
papers across the room.

You finally answer the telephone and search wildly around your
desk for a notebook and pencil. You find nothing, zip, nada!

So, what's the problem?

You finally realize that if you want your home office to run
smoothly you must take immediate steps to organize it.

Whether your business is full-time or part-time. Even if
you are starting small or on a grand scale, you will certainly
run into problems if you avoid pre-planning and organizing your
office interface to run in an efficient manner.

This is a no-brainer! You must organize your space so that all
essential office items are within arms reach. This will lead to
a smoother, more productive, work day. And make it easier to find
needed items at a moments notice.

It's surprising, the number of serious home office workers who
do not understand this important fact.

Are you ready to get organized? Let's get started!

The desk.
Get rid of clutter. Go through that stack of paper piled
high on your desk. Make this a habit at the start of the work day.
Be brutal. If you don't need it, toss it in the wastebasket.

Now search those desk drawers. Why are you keeping old
broken pens, yellowed scotch tape, receipts from purchases
made ten years ago or clips from a magazine you read last summer.
Either file the important stuff or toss it now! Also, purchase desk
drawer organizers at your local office supply store. These handy
items have compartments to neatly organize your extra essentials.

Your computer and keyboard should be the main focus of your desk.
Place a container with pens, pencils within arms reach.
Stack note pads nearby. Purchase desk top vertical or horizontal
organizers to stack important papers and keep them neat and orderly.

Stack reference books on a bookshelf on your desk, above your desk,
or one adjacent to desk.

Storage Disk
Store important CD's or floppies in a holder on your desk.

Place your fax, printer, scanner adjacent to your desk. So you
will only need to move a few inches to access them.

Your telephone should be close enough for you to answer
without leaving your desk chair. Believe me, running
back and forth to answer or make calls can be
very time consuming and tiring.

File Cabinets
If possible, place the files adjacent to the desk or in
a way to suit your workspace and give you easy

Keep personal items off your desk. This includes your
favorite magazines, a favorite crossword puzzle, personal
letters. And this certainly isn't the place to leave your
favorite hand held video game. All these items will cause
too many distractions.

Use the above tips as a starting point to get your office
organized efficiently and improve work production.
