Getting rid of things is probably the most important thing to maintaining an organized home office. When you accumulate too much stuff it becomes almost impossible to stay organized. There are just too many things to put away. Not only will putting the stuff away be a pain, it will also take lots of time. Then you have to make sure that your home office stays organized with all of that stuff. Since that will be very hard to do many people will give up and their home offices will start to become unorganized. This will make things harder to find, so it will take more time to search for the things. So get rid of things when you don’t need them, or you may collect too much stuff. And that will put you into a spiral that leads to total chaos in your home office.
