If you work from home on a regular basis, you know the struggle of keeping organized! Especially if you have children, it can be an almost impossible feat to keep everything where you left it as well as easily accessible for when you desperately need it during that important conference call. Here are some really quick and easy home office hacks that will keep your work area sleek and clean, allowing your brain the space to think and be productive- and not overwhelmed!
Clip Your Chargers
It can be so hard to keep track of your chargers as they can easily fall behind your desk! Take some file clips and clip them to your desk so you always know where they are. It’s easy to find aesthetically pleasing ones, too, so they can even add to the decor of the room!
Label your cords
It’s so simple, you’ll wonder why you hadn’t thought of it before! Using old bread ties, label the plug of each of your cords so you know EXACTLY which one is which. This way you will never gamble unplugging your computer and losing something on which you hadn’t yet clicked ‘save’!
Opt For A Murphy Desk
If space is limited in your home office, it might be hard to introduce a full sized desk. Enter the ‘murphy desk’; a desk that folds into the wall when not in use. This is perfect for an apartment or small corner space of your home. You can find ones with built in storage shelves so it really is a fold away office with everything in its place!
Roll Away Shelves
Along with a foldable workspace, a rollaway shelving unit is great for someone who needs to move their work station out of the way. Roll your files into the closet when not in use, and bring them out again when it’s time to get down to business!
