Your home office should be a place where you can crank out work like a well-oiled machine. If you need for your office to be more organized or just want some fun ways to make your space more efficient, you're going to love these home office hacks.
Turn Your Desk Into a Large Notepad
If you have a desk that you're okay with painting, paint the top with chalkboard paint. You can then use white charcoal pencils to jot down notes and erase them when you're done with them. It saves paper and you'll never have to hunt for a piece of paper to write on again. A bonus hack is to paint the sides of your desk hutch with magnetic paint and attach magnetic clips for keeping up with other paper.
Use an Over-the- Door Shoe Organizer for Small Supplies
Instead of trying to cram all your extra supplies in your desk drawer, use an over-the-door shoe organizer. You can fill each pocket with a different item. The best part is you can easily see what you have and be able to easily grab it when you need it.
Skip the Cable Clips and Use a Lego Figure
Don't you hate it when your cell phone or laptop cord falls behind the desk? Don't buy one of those boring and expensive cable clip systems, just use a Lego figure from your child's toy box. Attach the figure to your desk with poster putty and then slip the cord into the figure's hand. Mind blown.
Install a Towel Rod and Hang Planters From It for Pens and Pencils
Clear all the clutter off your desk by hanging a towel rod next to your desk. You can then use small hanging planters to store your pens, pencils, stapler, scissors, etc. You can even spray paint the planters and towel rod to match your color scheme. This is a great way to repurpose an old towel rod that you didn't want in your bathroom anymore.
Keep Papers in a Paint Tray
Last, but not least, don't waste your money on a $10 paper tray. Head to the Dollar Tree and grab a plastic paint tray. You can spray paint it to match your color scheme and it holds papers and file folders perfectly.
