8. Organize Your Books. You can organize books by genre, color or size depending on your preference. Organizing by color will add a stunning design element while giving your space a clutter-free, organized look.
9. Create Life Binders. Organize your most important papers in binders for easy grab-and-go in case of an emergency. For example, if there was a medical emergency, you could grab your medical binder and have all the information you need immediately.
Here are some top binder categories:
Medical – This binder is where your family’s medical records are kept. If you ever need to go to a new doctor or if you have a complex medical diagnosis, everything is organized in one spot.
Pet – This binder should contain your pets’ medical records, shot records and medications.
Auto – This binder is designated for all car repairs, maintenance records and car insurance papers.
Manuals – Store your manuals in one place in this binder. You can even separate the binder by sub-categories, such as appliances, electronics, garden and house.
House – Store all house-related information here, such as maintenance, pest control, security system and contact numbers for handymen.
Personal – This binder can store anything else that doesn’t fit in another category or file.
10. Utilize Wall Space. This is often the one step people miss when organizing their office. Use your wall space to hang filing systems, calendars, whiteboards, shelving and more. There is so much more space available when you go vertical.
