Organized Home Office and Library

I had the opportunity to work with a client to get her home office and library organized! A huge part of this was going through years worth of documents and papers to see what could be jettisoned and what needed to find a space in her filing cabinet. I love working with folks to set up filing systems that work for their lives. After all, the best organizational system is one that you will use and maintain!

This space serves a lot of purposes: home office, library, exercise space, and a pass through to the back patio. Going through the boxes of paperwork, files, and miscellany made a huge difference in making it a functional and pretty space. I absolutely adored the wall of shelving and had such a fun time organizing the books by category. There is also now plenty of storage for CDs, since the client loves music.

I think that this project really goes to show that you don’t need to spend a ton of money on organizational supplies to get a space to work well for you. We purchased additional boxes for CD storage (to match the ones she already had) and additional folders for the filing cabinet. That’s it!

What things have you done to make your home office or work space more organized?
