If your home office has seen tidier days, you’re certainly not alone. But that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t use some office organization ideas to whip it into shape. Here some DIY organization ideas for your office space that’ll have you feeling more on top of things.
1. Labeled Binder Clips
What a genius idea! Got stacks of papers that go together? Keep them that way with a binder clip, but label it so you know what each stack is for.
2. Command Center
Take a wall and hang a white board, some file baskets, pin board, etc. Make this your office command center. It’ll help keep your desk clean and your life organized.
Bills, statements, instructions, medical information and more can be easily and neatly stored in labeled binders on a shelf rather than in a filing cabinet.
4. Wall Files
You can make these part of your command center, but if you just need a way to organize all the mail along with kids’ school papers, grab some cheap wall files. Hang a bunch of them together if you need to.
5. Tin Can Organizer
Save a few cans of different sizes and mount them onto a board. Stain the wood and paint the cans, or spray paint the entire thing. Use it to hold scissors, pens, paperclips, etc.
6. Note Taking Station
Most people use a white board, but if you want a paper copy of your notes to hold onto, try wall mounted butcher paper. It becomes a design feature you — and even your clients — will love.
7. Keyboard Shelf
A keyboard shelf can help you keep small items organized and save space on your crowded desk.
8. DIY Charging Station
You can create a DIY charging station with a shoe box. No more cords all over the place!
9. Binder Clip Cable Keeper
A simple row of binder clips can keep your charging cables tidy and prevent them from falling off your desk.
10. Post-It Board
If you’re one of those people who likes writing stuff down to stay organized, try this post-it board idea. Use color coding and neat rows to keep your tasks at a glance.
