TIPS FOR AN ORGANIZED HOME OFFICE
"L" and "U" shaped desks offer the most
work spaces -- giving you plenty of room to maneuver on all sides of you.
Place everything you need regularly within arm's
of your desk -- no bending, stretching, or hiking across the room to get at equipment and supplies.
Donít waste your space hoarding
at your desk -- only keep what you need nearby and put the rest in a storage closet.
Sort your incoming paper
-- and try to decide what you need to do with each piece of paper the first time you touch it.
As you sort paper, divide
into folders according to what you have to do to them -- "to read," "to pay," "to file," etc.
system with broad categories ("insurance") divided into logical subcategories ("auto," "life," "health") and alphabetized within each category.
Even if you are not responsible for family
, know where all of the important household paperwork is kept.
-- youíre less likely to forget a meeting if you record your business and personal appointments in one place.
