Central intelligence. Those things you use the most — envelopes, checkbooks, stamps, etc. — should be kept together in a single, easy-to-reach location.
Keep it clean. Dust, cup rings, crumbs —they all accumulate. Wipe down desks, keyboards and mice regularly.
Paperless or near it. Consider investing in a document scanner. You don’t want to get rid of all your documents, but shaving down your paper isn’t a bad thing. You will probably want to keep your manuals and warranties nearby in case of a home emergency — a trusty file drawer is good for these and any other documents you need to save.
Mind your cords. Phone chargers and other electronic accessories should be contained in a go-to place. Pesky wires such as power strips, extension cords and adapters can form a tangled mess, but there are products to keep them well managed or even camouflaged.
Limit excess. It’s tempting to stock-up on office supplies, but purchase and store only what you have space to accommodate and what you will use in a reasonable time frame.
