Video: Creating a Cozy Home Office

I got inspired to create a video about my home office, when I realized it really took some time to "get it right," but that it's really worth it in the end to create a comfortable, efficient space. Here are some tips:
  1. Keep all the office supplies you need handy, so you can easily reach for them. That means items like pens, paper, calendar, envelopes, stamps, to do list, agenda book, etc.
  2. Some everyday items make great desk accessories...I use a strawberry container as a business card holder, a holder for receipts, and a container for small items like post its and gluesticks
  3. Keep a small music collection handy to help your latest picks -- "The Best of the Mamas and the Papas" and Suzanne Vega, "Beauty and Crime"
  4. Don't be shy about adding objects that bring you comic relief, such as funky pens, etc.
  5. Post motivational items, such as symbols of past achievements, such as awards. For me, it's writing awards I have received, and special publications, like when my short story was published in Redbook
Happy organizing!
