Let’s face it—whether your office is an executive suite, a cramped cubicle, or you find yourself working from home, we’ve all encountered the overwhelming sense of frustration clutter and disorganization can bring. No matter how much space you may have it sometimes feels like there’s nowhere left to put anything! Try following a few of these easy tips and you might be amazed to realize office organization is within your reach!

  1. Consider adding shelving to your work space. While this might seem like a daunting task at first, there are plenty of easy and low-budget options out there. Swing by your local Lowes or Home Depot for ideas on mounted shelving. If power tools aren’t your thing, there are plenty of stand-alone options as well from places as convenient as Target.
  2. I think everyone should have a label maker. I have two— one that is attached to my computer and a hand-held one. These come in handy in any office and help you stick by the mantra “a place for everything and everything in its place”.
  3. Three-ring binders work great for keeping track of bank statements and investment statements since they usually already come with three holes punched in them. Using binders and filing systems is great for keeping paperwork organized and your desktop de-cluttered.
  4. One of my go-to brands for office organization is Sterilite, which you can find at most Staples. They have small, white, basket-like trays that come in four sizes and are perfect for organizing drawer space. You can mix and match to fit in whatever desk drawers you have!
