Home offices are more commonplace by the year, and today one in four American households has one. You don’t have to be self-employed or work from home to have a home office; it can be used simply for sorting through bills, finances, documents, and all those other fun things that we love saving for a rainy day and having a designated workspace can make everything run faster and smoother.
Still, as with the kitchen, lounge, and pretty much every other room under the roof, the home office can become messy, dusty, cluttered, disorganized, and, as a result of this combination, a hindrance to its very purpose.
Organize Your Home Office Day counters this chaos by providing the motivation to throw away the trash and shred the unwanted paperwork; recycle those drinks cans and polish the desk; clean the windows, alphabetize your filing system, fill up your stationery reserves, and maybe even get a potted plant to help energize the room even further.
You can even have fun while you do it: set yourself a time limit, put on your favorite album, and see just how beautiful and work-conducive you can make that room in an hour or two!
And remember, the more organized your home office, the less time you’ll need to spend there in the long run. What more incentive do you need?
