Design a Shared Home Office that is Effective and Functional for Everyone

Taking the time to set up a shared office properly will ensure that both people can work effectively and efficiently. Each person will need a dedicated work area, including a desk and chair.

Office and Craft Room Decluttering

 

 

 

My ‘Calendar of Organizing Holidays’ lists the 4th week in March as National Clutter Awareness Week.  This is good for everyone who regularly looks around and finds that, yes, again, it’s looking a little messy around here.

I have a tendency to go from ‘minimal’ to ‘maximum’ in a very short time so I need more than one clutter awareness week but I will take it upon myself to add a few more in during the year.  I will observe this one, my office will be happy and lighter for it.

A few suggestions when de-cluttering.  First, I have noticed that many times, the room gets messier before it gets neater.  It’s really disappointing when you are going at de-cluttering and you look behind you to discover piles and stacks and…more mess than when you started.  Just power through!  Soon, very soon, you will see the difference!

The second tip is be non-judgemental about your sorting.  Everything will find it’s place in the end, whether it will go to a donation pile, the trash or a closet or basement, you will make the right decision.

So, before you know it, your office or craft room will look like a million bucks!
