Having a home office isn’t just a luxury any longer; for many people, it’s a necessity and may even be required as a part of their job responsibilities. A home office was once only needed for those who actually operated businesses out of their residences. Now, employees of small companies and Fortune 500 corporations often have an area of their house that serves as an office when they can’t be at their workspace. Unfortunately, home offices aren’t always kept in the neatest condition. That’s when it pays to use moving containers for Montreal, Ottawa and Toronto to organize home office areas.
Plastic moving containers like the moving boxes available at Blue Bins can be used to easily coordinate everything in a home office and get it in “working” condition… literally! Below are some easy-to-follow steps to getting a home office in tip-top shape:
Step #1: Go online and rent moving containers in Montreal or any part of Ontario. If you have trouble determining how many moving boxes to have delivered to your home office, contact the Blue Bins customer service personnel for information.
Step #2: When your moving containers arrive, affix “sticky notes” to them. Label some “Keep”, some “Sell” and some “Give Away”. Keep a shredder and trash receptacle handy, too, for items that are no longer needed.
Step #3: Start sorting through all your home office papers, computer equipment, office supplies, books, containers, etc. Be completely thorough and kind of ruthless… the goal is to only keep in your home office what you absolutely need.
Step #4: After everything has been sorted or thrown away, go back to the “Sell” and “Give Away” containers one last time. Ask yourself if the “Sell” items are really worth the effort. For instance, even 100 ballpoint pens won’t fetch much on auction websites or a garage sale. They might be better to give away. On the other hand, if you have a series of valuable – and recent – marketing or sales books, you might be able to get a few dollars for each.
Step #5: Take all your “Give Away” items to a community center.
Step #6: Start listing all your “Sell” items online, or put them in another part of your house to sell during a neighborhood sale.
Step #7: Clean the home office space from top to bottom.
Step #8: Re-organize all the items from your “Keep” Blue Bins moving box.
Step #9: If you haven’t thrown out all the “Toss” items, do it now.
Step #10: Enjoy your home office!
You’ll never feel as effective as you do when you have the ideal space in which to do your job. So “get back to work”… in style… and let Blue Bins moving containers help you succeed.
