3. Create a Mail Station

In order to maintain control of the paper coming into the home office, create a mail station. Make a folder for incoming and outgoing mail, mail to file, bills and a folder for every family member.

As soon as the mail comes in, file it in the mail station. Then once a week, take a few minutes and go through each folder.

4. Create a Printing Station

Designate a space in your office to house the printer and printer supplies. If you have a wireless printer, it doesn't need to go on your desk. By placing it in a cabinet or other area in your office, you will gain much more space on your desk for other items.
