Appoint specific storage areas within the realm of your home office. Standing paper files should on your desk for files that you are working with currently.
Purchase several clear storage bins with lids to stack around your office for older files, electronic back-ups (such as CDs and zip disks) and other miscellaneous items essential to your home office. The clear bins, along with a label for each one, will help you to determine where items are so that you can access them quickly. File organization is key to your level of efficiency, so take great care to be as organized as possible.
