Hi. I'm Rachel Yatuzis and I'm going to give you some home office organization tips. First off, you want to think about what you really want in the office. Things like three pound bar bells really don't go in the office. I mean, unless you spend a lot of time in the office and you need to exercise every, every day and you just want to have something to do. I guess that you would want to put these in a drawer or something. Don't have them on your desk. Another thing is containers like this are awesome. This is great for throwing the bills in. Bills like this. You get them up and out of the way. You can stick that back and you've left yourself a whole bunch more space. Finger nail polish and stuff, probably not for the home office. That probably goes in the bathroom or something like that. So get rid of that. Books and things like this, you want to try to stack them like this. It's going to give you more room. And it's even better if you have, let's see, oh want to get this open; if you have a place to get them out of site. So shelves and things like this are great. You don't want to just stack them in there like I just did. You want to find a place for everything. Obviously, if you get them out of your site, it's going to start to look a lot nicer and neater. Another tip is, and things like this is awesome. This is a multi-functional one item. It's to put your pens in and it's a light. Two in one. That leaves you a lot more space on your desk. Excellent. Another thing you want to do is keep a duster in your desk. That way when you get writer's blocks or you're sitting at your desk and maybe you don't want to work or don't want to be doing what you're suppose to be doing, pull duster out and just go through, go over everything. You're desk will stay much cleaner this way. So just make sure that you know where everything is. Filing is important, obviously. File cabinets, things like that. Just try to keep everything nice and organized where you know where it is. I'm Rachael Yatuzis and that is some home office organization tips.
