Organize Your Home Office Day

So many things go into creating an organized home office -- whether you work from home or just use it for running your household. PAPER management -- you can't pay bills or write a report or make phone calls wtih a huge pile staring you in the face. Office LAYOUT -- how can you get any work done when you have to bend, stretch, and walk all the way across the room to get at your supplies and equipment? And ERGONOMICS -- it's difficult to be efficient when your neck and back are killing you because of a poorly positioned desk or chair. So this month, let's spend a minute on a few suggestions for getting your home office in order.

Some Practical Organizing Tips...

Is your furniture and equipment appropriate to the kind of work you do? Do you have enough room for your supplies and equipment -- to spread out? Do have enough file space for your paperwork? Don't settle for a non-functional work ENVIRONMENT.
Set up 3 kinds of STORAGE. Fingertip items should be within arms reach of your desk. Active items are used regularly but not daily -- store a bit further away. Archive items are rarely needed and should be stored away from your active work area. 
Create a paper management center for storing "to-do's" until you can do them. Make a decision about what step you need to take to clear up each piece of paper and store it in a file for that ACTION -- "to pay", "to call", etc. Then empty once a week.
