Four Great Tips for Keeping Your Home Office Organized

In 2020, more people are working from home than ever before, and due to the Coronavirus pandemic, they’ll likely be staying there for some time.  If you’re among the many people who only recently began working from home, chances are your home office may not be entirely optimized or set up for the purpose.

So, as one of the top furniture stores in Calgary, we wanted to highlight some easy ways you can make your home office setup more useful, and help you be more productive no matter where or how you’re working!

Four Ways to Make A Better Home Office

  1. Keep paperwork neatly filed away

Ideally, you aren’t dealing with too much paperwork in a business world that is increasingly electronic.  That said, paper is still hard to avoid entirely – so make sure it doesn’t pile up on your workspace.  No paper should be on your desk except items you will be working with immediately.  Everything else should be filed away, such as in a lovely Arlenbry Filing Cabinet from Ashley Furniture.

  1. Clean regularly

If you’re not going to be working with it, do you need to keep it?  In many cases, the answer is “no.”  Be aware of when an item, object, or piece of paper will no longer have any purpose, and throw it out promptly.  This will do so much to reduce clutter!

  1. Do small jobs quickly and promptly

As a general rule, it’s a bad idea to procrastinate on minor tasks which will only take you a few minutes to accomplish.  It’s too easy for such tasks to pile up, making for a lengthy and annoying to-do list.  If you get them done as soon as possible, you’ll be happier and more productive.

  1. Have a designated place for everything you use

Having plenty of varied storage space is another key to preventing clutter in your home office.  This would actually be a great excuse to pick up a new homework desk with plenty of storage, like an Arlenbry two-piece corner desk, or this Daylicrew office desk and hutch.  This keeps your space organized and makes it easy to find whatever you need.
