3 Things I Fixed to Work from Home During the Pandemic

My computer is a bit older. Yet my computer works adequately and has enough memory. So, I thought I was set. However, I ran into a myriad of challenges during the early phase of my work from home stint. Here are three which I overcame.

Organize, Organize, Organize Some More

  • Make Important Documents Visible:
    At home, shop ticket holders are great for holding important passwords and other information you access regularly. For me, this means passwords for all our corporate social media sites, plus mailing lists for email campaigns. Basically, my shop ticket holder protects my cheat sheets. I use a red, 9” x 12” Shop Ticket Holder With Hanging Straps, hung from my computer armoire door. It’s easy to see and flip around if I need the information on the other side.

  • Keep Documents Organized:
    Who doesn’t have some older household paperwork lying around that should be filed? I worried these documents would just get mixed in with my work documents, so I moved my household papers onto my filing credenza. Away from my computer armoire. Away from work paperwork. This way I wouldn’t commingle the two. I used Write-On Poly File Jackets to organize my work projects. With five bright colors, I can easily separate different projects and know which files contain work information.

  • Create a Virtual Desk:
    To create a “virtual” desk I put all my file jackets into a 13-Pocket Expanding File. Not really a desk, but rather a place to organize all my documents in one place. It worked perfectly. Another stylish option would have been the Modern Metallic Stand-Up Expanding Files, which has handles. These are great for moving the expanding file across your desk, across the room, or across town back to your office.
