5 Effective Ways to Unclutter Your Home Office

Entry #2070, February 4, 2012

The orderliness of your home office promotes productivity and efficiency.  However, this is easier said than done. The amount of time you can spend on organizing your home office is a great challenge. Just like any other offices, your home office has to cater paper works, furniture, computer, and other office essentials. You have to know how to arrange these items properly for better working environment.

To help you organize your home office, here are five useful ways to do it:

Hooks can do the trick

Installing hooks is so easy and quick. All you have to do is to find the best place in your home office where you can hang on your clothes or other items and place the hooks. This will prevent you from just hanging these items on your chair or on top of the table.

Throw away duplicates

Check your documents for any duplicates or carbon copies. Bills that are already paid are unnecessary and should be thrown away. If you have a wall and a desk calendar, you have to let go of one.

Promote paperless transactions

Use the power of technology to remove papers in your home office. Saving all your files on a disk is safer that having them in a piece of paper. It will save you space and be environment-friendly. Anyway, you can print it anytime if you need a hard copy.

Maximize your storage

Storage can be a source of clutter if you don’t know how to use it properly. You have to maximize your cabinets, shelves, and other storage materials accordingly. For instance, you can use the top portion of your cabinets for your seasonal office materials.

Use multipurpose furniture

This is very effective especially if you don’t have the luxury of space. You can design your office table to have several drawers to maximize the space it occupies. Also, there are several chairs that are designed with built-in storage.

These are just some of the simple ways to unclutter your home office. Keep these in mind and you will definitely increase your productivity in your work.
