Setting Up a Home Office/Workstation
Most of us have had to adjust our daily routines and schedules and figure out how we can best continue our work from home. Add to this dynamic the fact our spouses, kids or other loved ones have had to do the same. School lessons, Zoom calls, use of computer devices, and more are all going on simultaneously in our households. Talk about stress and chaos! Even if you have a room designated as the home office, it is not realistic everyone use the space when they need to do work or conduct business. Especially at the same time!
Overwhelmed yet?! We have some simple and practical solutions for setting up one, or multiple workstations in your home. With just a few things, you can create an office for everyone! And what’s even greater, it will all be organized in a confined functional space.
Here are the items you need:
- Small decorative or colored file box
- Hanging file folders
- Desktop storage unit
Use the file box to keep all important documents and papers in one location. Creating folders or using file tabs will keep everything ordered and sorted.
The desktop storage unit is a great system for stowing your notepad, calendar/planner, pens, highlighters, stapler, ruler, etc., all in one place.
For information that is referenced often, the binder is a smart unit that will hold these materials together, so you have quick and easy access to them.
Of course, a laptop, so you can do your work, read the news, and maybe sneak in a quick YouTube video during a break! 😊
This simple set up will:
- Contain your files and projects in one place.
- Store everything at your fingertips.
- Keep your workspace clean and organized.
- Give you mobility – work in a room, the kitchen, or the backyard!
- Identify family members’ office space with color coded items unique to each.
Have fun choosing these items and be sure they express who you are, what you like, or what matches your interior décor. The sky’s the limit on your creativity!
Begin reaping the benefits of utilizing these simple items and get order and calm back in your home.
Mission Accomplished. House Organized.
