5 Smart Strategies to Improve Your Home Office

Times have changed.  You may be doing most of your office work at home or you are a work-at-home person!

Either way, here are 5 smart strategies to spiff up your home office:


1.  Start with an ovis table with drawers for storage, a comfortable chair and a filing cabinet where you can stash all your paper work.

2.  Bring life to a dull corkboard by covering it in fabric.  Fasten to the back with double-sided tape.

3.  If your office is part of a bigger space like the living room, define the area by laying down a rug.

4.  Get organized using everyday items.  Wide glasses can hold mail, while empty jam jars or baby food jars can hold small supplies like paper clips.

5.  Line your table with sheets of paper.  You can easily jot down notes and tear and dispose as needed.My Life's Anik Aniks


4 Ways to De-Clutter Your Room

1. Make a “Throw, Keep, Give” pile.  Separating your stash into these categories will make organizing so much easier.

2. Sort things out.  Creating groupings can give a shelf or closet instant visual appeal.  Think of categorizing by color (works well with clothes and shoes), genre (great for DVDs, CDs or books), and by size (books, jewelries, guitars, your guitar input jack, tiny knick-knacks, and your photos.

3. Don’t fear disposing.  Battle your inner Pack Rat and give yourself a serious talking-to.  Have you used the item in the last six months?  In the last year?  If it’s just bee sitting in your closet, it’s about time you make room for something new.

4.  Make time.  Rome wasn’t built in a day – and neither are clean rooms.  It took a while for your room to get as messy as it is now, and it is going to take as much time (if not a little more) to get it back in tiptop shape. My Life's Anik Aniks
