Organizing Paperwork in Small Home Offices
When you’re working from home and have a small workspace with limited room for key supplies and frequently used files, it can be challenging to find the right solutions for managing supplies and organizing paperwork. This is the time to be creative and customize the solution to your situation. Here are 3 different approaches to consider.
Mobile Rolling Cart: This 10-drawer unit has ample space for all your home office supplies as well as those important to do folders. In addition, there is room on top for your laptop. If you’re working at your dining table, this cart can be easily positioned near the table each morning. At the end of the day, you can clear the table and put everything back in the drawers. The colored drawers help to make it easier to remember the location of all key items.
File Organizer Box: If your home workspace is in a corner of your living room or bedroom, this linen file box with a lid will fit in nicely. It blends in with the surrounding décor and is functional. You can use it like a file cabinet and store important documents, pending project folders and reference information. It is portable and stackable so you could have more than one if needed.
Wall File Holder: If you have very limited desktop space, finding a place for pending issues, the mail and other work-related materials is challenging. Piles on the floor shouldn’t be an option. However, mounting a file holder like this one on the wall could be the right solution for you. The slots are ideal for folders, reference materials and your to-do pad. This unit has 10 pockets and is easy to mount on the wall.
If these suggestions aren’t right for your space, I hope that they have inspired you to consider other options. What creative solutions have you used for organizing paperwork in your home office? Reach out now to share.
