Office spaces are notorious for being magnets for clutter and disorganization. This often occurs over an extended period of time without being addressed. At Closet & Storage Concepts, serving all of South Jersey, the Shore, and Philadelphia, we know how important it can be to get your office in order. Even once you create a custom home office system that works for you and all of your equipment, your office can benefit from office storage accessories. We’ve compiled a list of five must-have office accessories to help you stay organized in your office.
Cord management can get a bit crazy, especially in an office. One way to keep them in order is with cord bundlers. These can be as easy as using cable ties, bread twist ties, or finding silicone-like bungee cords. We think the silicone options are the most durable and can be rearranged as your needs change. There are also options that allow you to label as you bundle. You can always use masking tape to create a tag to detail which cable goes to what device. Bundling and labeling your cords will help prevent cords from getting tangled.
Another way to keep cords under control is with cord clips. While bundling your cords helps control cords behind your desk, cord clips help you when they’re in plain sight. They keep cords in their place so you don’t lose a cord as you plug and unplug it. If you don’t want to invest in a self-stick option you can clamp a binder clip to the edge of your desk, and loop your cord through the arms of the clip. The unique shape of the arm should prevent your cord from dropping to the floor. Cord clips help to keep your office organized and clean.
Don’t underestimate the need for lighting and how it can affect your workspace. Lighting helps to set the mood in a workspace and having adequate lighting can help productivity in addition to keeping your space organized. Good lighting makes you aware of every speck of dirt and every item in your office, which will help you to maintain your organization systems and space.
While a good office system will make sure you have adequate space for all of your items, be sure to use storage containers to keep everything in order. Use dividers where needed, whether that’s in your file cabinet or in a drawer. Storage containers keep paper clips, rubber bands, and post-it notes in a central area.
An office wouldn’t be complete without a calendar. Whether you have a digital version that travels with you or a nice big print that you hang up, a calendar will be key to keeping your time organized. It can also act as a great design element.
