Space-saving Tips


According to 360 ezine, a small workstation can work just as well as a larger one. Their space-saving tips include:

-Make maximum use of space with shelves, overheads and towers, nesting pedestals and tables.

Going up? If your real estate is limited, make good use of vertical space with towers, overheads bins, shelves and hanging pencil cups, paper clip trays, etc.

-A side table extends your work area and helps keep your main work surface free of clutter.

- Two-for-one: A mobile pedestal can double as a visitor seat with the addition of a seat cushion.

-Writingcorner.com adds their two cents:

- Use a lateral filing cabinet as opposed to a standard vertical cabine as lateral cabinets hold more files.

- Store older files and research away from your office space. Box, label and store the files in another room or closet.

- Only keep current projects on your desk. Use stackable file trays for easy access and to save space.

- Use a dry erase board to track assignments, i.e. what's due and what's finished. Customize it to fit your needs.

- If possible, store only the supplies needed in your office space. Store extra supplies in an accessible closet.
