Day 15: Office

Hello, friends! Welcome back to our How to Organize Your Home in 20 Days series!

You have worked so hard organizing your home and it definitely shows.

I hope you are starting to feel more at ease as you are clearing your home of clutter. Today’s project... the office!

The office in your house is shared by many people for a lot of reasons. It’s an easy dumping ground for miscellaneous items and the never ending stack of papers.

Today we are going to clear out that office so you have a peaceful place to work. Let’s get started!

In this particular project, we helped our client get rid of 90% of the paper she and her husband had been accumulating over 30-40 years.

We donated 5 filing cabinets. At the end of the project, our client was able to keep all her important paperwork in the built-in filing cabinet in her desk!

First step of organizing your office -- start putting everything in your office in a pile in the middle of the room.

Bring out all of the books, papers, knick-knacks, small office supplies (stapler, tape, thumbtacks) and large office supplies (printer, desktop monitor, keyboard).

The large office supplies are fine to stay on a flat surface, you don’t have to put those on the floor!
