Home office organization is a hot topic today!
Thirty years ago, life was much simpler and few people needed a home office.
Certainly most people in the baby boomer generation never grew up in a household with a dedicated home office.
Back then nobody needed an office to run a household. The kitchen table served as a desk and once per month a few cheques were written to cover off some bills at the end of the month.
A calendar was maintained by the phone with daily activities for the family and that was how to organize a home office in the 50's and 60's!
Not so today............the average home is a busy place with people coming and going all day long. Many activities have to be arranged and coordinated.
If you are living in an organized home like mine, you may be responsible for organizing the comings and goings of your own life plus those of silent generation parents. (Mine live in the basement suite.)
Ignoring home office organization in this day and age can prove to be dangerous! Missed appointments and late bill payments can only complicate your life. Attention to home office organization can lead to a more organized life, and when your life is easier you feel more like you have some control over it.
