Spruce Up Your Home Office


According to 360 ezine, a small workstation can work just as well as a larger one. Their space-saving tips include:

l Make maximum use of space with shelves, overheads and towers, nesting pedestals and tables.

l Going up? If your real estate is limited, make good use of vertical space with towers, overheads bins, shelves and hanging pencil cups, paper clip trays, etc.

l A side table extends your work area and helps keep your main work surface free of clutter.

l Two-for-one: A mobile pedestal can double as a visitor seat with the addition of a seat cushion.

Writingcorner.com adds their two cents:

l Use a lateral filing cabinet as opposed to a standard vertical cabinet. Lateral cabinets hold more files.

l Store older files and research away from your office space. Box, label and store the files in another room or closet.

l Only keep current projects on your desk. Use stackable file trays for easy access and to save space.

l Use a dry erase board to track assignments, i.e. what's due and what's finished. Customize it to fit your needs.

l If possible, store only the supplies needed in your office space. Store extra supplies in an accessible closet or under your bed
