Tips and Benefits of Working at Home

4/10/2020 | Lynn Lilly


Now that more and more people are working from home, Design Team Member Sue Eldred shares a few tips for getting organized, creating a neat desktop and benefits of working at home.
One of the first steps in creating a good working environment is your workspace.
It doesn’t have to be fancy or stylish. Sue’s desk/work surface is an old Sunday School table purchased at a church rummage sale.
Start with a clean desktop. It’s the one thing you can do to help control the chaos in life.
Find useful items to keep you organized.
Sue uses a variety of new and vintage items to organize her craft/office space. On her desk, she likes to keep it as clutter-free as she can. The Deflecto 12″ x 12″ Stackable Storage Trays are a great way to corral paper clutter. Sue uses the first tier to hold the items she references most often.  
As a paper crafter, she uses the second tier to hold scrapbook paper and future projects. Sue used the Deflecto Interlocking Marker Organizer to hold everyday items. Of course, it’s also perfect for holdin
g your markers and other crafty items.

Best yet, it fits inside the Deflecto Stackable Caddy Organizer.

Make it Personal.
It doesn’t matter if your space is temporary or permanent, make sure it reflects your personal style. If you have room, place a favorite family photo on your desk. It will remind you why you’re doing what you’re doing in the first place.
Choose Good Lighting.
To help your eyes from getting tired, choose a light fixture to brighten up your space.
One of Sue’s favorite benefits of working from home is Cute Co-Workers.  
Sue says, “Don’t let the cuteness of this scruffy co-worker throw you. He’ll steal your supplies the moment you turn your back (sometimes right in front of
your face).”
