Spring Cleaning and Organizing the Home Office

Here are four helpful tips to get your home office shaped up for spring:

1. Clear the desk space so you have ample room to work. It's hard to concentrate or focus on a particular task when you are distracted by the clutter that is staring back at you on top of your desk. 

Rambling Renovators demonstrates how clearing away paperwork, folders and other items off the desk will provide proper work space. Having a clean and clear work space will help you to be much more productive.


2. Maximize desk or printer space. Are you working in a small area or do you need to find some extra space for your organizational needs? Martha Stewart shares a wonderful DIY tutorial on how to generate some extra space for your printer or desk area. If you’re not crafty inclined or don’t have the time for this kind of project, you can do something similar with the idea using materials you already have in your home.
