Having a home office is a big deal these days, but for some people, organizing them to suit their needs is a big deal. It can be difficult to manage your home, finances, family activities, schedules, or even run your business. Some people may be lucky enough to have a large home office while others may just have a corner in the room to work from. Therefore, Organize your Home Office Day is a perfect day to organize your Home Office. It's also the perfect day to clear your desk, take out the trash, clear that pile of paperwork, recycle empty soda cans, wipe away dirt build-up, and wash your coffee mugs and more.

How to celebrate Organize your Home Office Day
1. Clean desks and other surfaces. If paper, office supplies, dirty coffee cups, or other items cover your desk, you need to clean them up. Paper often piles up on any flat surface if it doesn't have a designated storage space. Before taking to the next step, focus on removing it to another surface for grading first.
2. Sorting, shredding, recycling and purification. Take items to be washed and recycled in sinks and recycling bins. Throw out the trash, pick up the scattered office supplies and put them back in their proper receptacle. Then organize the documents into categories to submit.
3. Dust off freshly cleaned surfaces, before you put items back on the desk. Notice how big your screen looks?
4. Set aside plenty of storage space in your filing cabinet. You need enough room to store frequently used files and reference/archive files (papers that you don't need to deal with every day). If you don't have this type of storage, invest in a two-tier clear plastic document drawer with wheels for convenience or in some attractive covered boxes to keep documents. Make sure you have enough file space so that your papers are not piled up but in organized files. And, keep personal and business documents stored separately.
5. Leave plenty of room on the desk. Decide if you have space on your desktop to hold all your electronic devices like computers, printers, scanners, landlines or digital phones, computers, etc. If your desktop takes up too much room, replace it with a laptop. Move some of this equipment to another small countertop if needed. Designate desk areas for working on paper and for holding desktop folders, pens, staplers, paper clips & cardboard, and other supplies.
6. Clean up files regularly. Go through your files monthly, quarterly, twice a year, or annually to get rid of outdated paperwork and to make room for the new. Do the same with your computer files, get rid of old emails, folders, or programs that you no longer use.
7. Are you satisfied with your office environment? If not, make some changes so that you can enjoy and work in the room. Do desks and other furniture including shelving function? Buy a new desk with drawers if you only work on a flat surface, add more efficient shelving if needed, buy a more comfortable chair, hang new curtains, bring photos, artwork, plants plant. Let's make this a pleasant place.
