Organize your home office

leatherfileI’m amazed someone paid me for my opinion on how to get organized and she actually took notes! Fresh from a consulting gig, here are some ideas to organize your home office:

1. Sort, consolidate and delete.  Home offices are notorious for having household and work/career related files mixed up. Start organizing into separate categories, consolidate duplicates and group related files together as subfiles. Purge and delete old files, make space for new ideas, blessings and opportunities.

2. Be cognizant about what you say – are you constantly saying that you are disorganized and scattered? Speak victory about yourself and be thankful for the harmony that already exists in your home.

Here are before and after pictures of my filing cabinet circa 2007.
