I’d like to take the next couple of posts to offer a few ideas for odds and ends around the house.
Not everyone has the luxury of enough space to have their own office at home. I humbly fall into that category. This does not mean that I can’t function efficiently and have everything I need for a brilliantly working space. I’d like to share a solution for keeping your office functional, portable and easy to use. It is especially handy for those that might have a small desk in a kitchen area or for those that might work from a dining room table or other surface. I purchased a craft kit and tricked it out with all the essentials for office work;
- Stapler, staples etc
- Paper clips, rubber bands and post-its
- Pens, highlighters and markers
- Inside I have a label maker, letter opener, tape etc …
The portable tote can be taken anywhere in (or out of ) the home to pay bills, organize paperwork, assist with craft projects, etc..
Another problem area seems to be the endless amount of chargers and odd cords. Take a small caddy and label each section for the appropriate cord. I found the example below at the Container Store for under $10.00. I keep chargers for cell phones, camera cords, and other miscellaneous items that I use frequently, but not daily.
Do you need a creative solution for a little problem area in your home? Send me a note or post to the site and I’ll take a look!
