Spring is a great time to get organized after winter hibernation. Here are some SMART tips to help you make the best of your office space.
Start by organizing: File, toss or shred unnecessary paper clutter…Use baskets or color-coded boxes to organize office supplies…Add open shelves or “cabinet” shelving units to closet or room to hide and contain bulky items and electronics
Make A Bulletin Board: Make it cork, padded or peg board, or magnetic…Accent with hanging wire baskets, small plastic holders, decorative magnets or push-pins…Vow to only keep important reminders front and center
Arrange the room for better function: Consolidate or remove excess furnishings and misc. items to create extra space…Consider a modular desk unit or all-in-one office armoire to free up floor space…Customize a little used closet as an efficient desk area or to add storage.
Re-Locate the annoying wires: Move the desk or re-arrange the desktop computer so wires are against the wall & floor molding…Consider painting PVC tubing the color of your flooring and/or walls and thread the wires through to hold them all neatly in place…Hide wires behind a desk top plant or large, potted floor plant.
Try some light on the subject: Position a task-oriented light on your desktop…Be sure you have good general overhead lighting, and avoid florescent whenever possible…Be sure to light your storage closet for late-night work sessions
