Organizing Your Office Space

Working from home was essential as businesses shut their doors to the public following strict quarantine rules. For some, working from home was the dream scenario. Who doesn't love working with their pet at their side and their favorite tv show playing in the background? For others, working from home became a nightmare. Enter scenes of kids yelling and coffee spilling on the laptop keyboard.

This work from home movement meant many spare rooms became overnight office spaces. Even though some businesses are reopening their doors and calling their employees back into cubicles, some are continuing to ask employees to work from home for the time being. Whichever office space you fall into, we thought it was time for some office organization tips. 

For tips on creating an organized office, we turned to The Home Edit, master organizers with two books and a Netflix show coming soon. Here are some of their incredible ideas for how to stay organized in your office space:

  • "If you don’t have access to an *official* office but need your own space, all you need is an open wall." Add a hanging foldable shelf and you're set!
  • "Use a combination of small and large inserts to fit the exact measurements of a drawer and the categories that live there. Drawers tend to take some trial and error, so don’t be afraid to move the contents around until you’re satisfied with the outcome."
  • "Stackable clear bins are a functional solution for offices or desks without built-in storage. They can be placed on a shelf or within a nearby cabinet. Just make sure to label each category so you can easily spot what you are looking for."
  • "Electronics such as printers and laptops come with a lot of connected cords. Using cord wraps to collect them helps keep everything streamlined and less cluttered. We also suggest adding cord labels to your power strip, which will prevent you from turning off your wifi when you just meant to unplug a lamp."
  • "On any given day, most of us have our fair share of ingoing and outgoing mail, papers to sign, documents to file, and schedules to keep track of. When creating a system, it helps to think in three general categories: To-Do, File, and Recycle. As a reminder for tasks at hand, To-Do papers need to remain organized but visually accessible in open treys or letter sorters."
