30 ways to Organize your home office
- Use Staples Rustic File Holders to organize your backdrops for photos and vinyl for projects. I love that I was able to roll my backdrops and vinyl and place them nicely in the file holders and display them proudly in my home office.
- Use Staples Colored File Folders for important information that you need daily. These are perfect for my blogging contracts, bills, to do lists, project ideas and lots more.

- Get control over your paperwork clutter before it controls you, this can easily be done by using the gorgeous Staples Rustic Letter Tray. Goes perfectly on the edge of my desk.
- Use the Staples Rustic Letter Sorter to display thank you cards at an easy reach on your desk. I love to send out thank you notes to friends and family and having them on my desk makes it so much easier to remember.

- Store your Staples Copy Paper and Staples Cover Stock Paper in the Staples Rustic Magazine holders for easy storage. They look great displayed on my white shelving.
- It’s so important to save all of your documents, posts, pictures and files on a flash drive and I’m loving the Staples 64GB flash drive. It’s big enough to hold all my important stuff and love that I can easily load it between my laptop and desktop computer.
