New year, new goals. Now that a new chapter is approaching, many people are excited to change some aspects of their lives and improve themselves. Do you want to be extra productive this year? Do you want to be more efficient to achieve your career goals? Is your wellness one of your priorities in 2023? If yes, this guide is for you.
Organisation and Productivity
Organisation makes a big difference, not only in the look of your home office but also in your productivity. Staying organised helps you stay focused and finish your work tasks on time. It also lessens the risk of misplacing important items.
Whether you are looking to upgrade your workflow or simply want a space that looks presentable, here are some organisation ideas to help you achieve your 2023 goals.
Office Storage Ideas for 2023
Many storage trends are on the rise in 2023, especially environmentally friendly products and those that are built to last. Advance your work-from-home setup with these versatile storage ideas.
First of all, declutter your home office.
Before you start organising your home office, take a look at your work area and start decluttering your space. Reorganising your desk or home office can be more achievable. Start by getting rid of items that you no longer need. This includes damaged office supplies, old receipts, or papers that you no longer need. If you are in doubt whether a paper file is important or not, take time to scan your papers before tossing them out. Make an inventory of the items that you should toss, sell, donate, and recycle.
The following are essential storage ideas to transform your home office in 2023.
When space is at a premium, it’s crucial to maximise your vertical storage to keep as many office items as possible without taking up much floor space. If you are looking for vertical storage that doesn’t look too bulky or distracting, try a tall bookshelf where you can store office items and decorative elements.
To maximise your bookshelf, sort your items by folders or bins so you can create a more uniform look.
Avoid the visual clutter in your home office by reorganising your supplies using some storage baskets. You may incorporate a label system so you can easily find the office items that you need. We love the Stefanplast storage baskets that come in different colours and sizes. Depending on your theme, you may opt for a single-coloured storage basket or combine different storage basket designs.
Keep your office essentials closer to your reach by opting for a compact mobile pedestal. This not only creates a more formal look for your home office but also helps you save space when tucked under your office desk. Mobile pedestals are ideal for small to medium-sized office supplies and paper files. A mobile pedestal is also made from tough materials and has a central lock to help you secure important documents.
Do you have enough space in your home office? If you want to create a more traditional professional look, choose a spacious filing cabinet that will allow you to store more files in the safest way possible. Most filing cabinets in Singapore, like a mobile pedestal, have safety features like central locks and anti-tip mechanisms to ensure safe storage.
Open shelves never go out of style, especially in 2023, when many home offices will welcome utilitarian designs. Open shelves are simple and highly versatile options that can complement various home office themes. Whether you are following a minimalist approach, a modern interior design, or a more dramatic style, open shelves can offer a myriad of design possibilities.
Make your home office a little bit Pinterest-worthy with trendy stackable organisers. These tiered drawers from HOUZE are not only charming but also versatile. Whether you want to store your pens, stationery supplies, or home office snacks, these simple organisers are perfect additions to your office desk.

Desktop Utensil Holder
Sometimes, things as simple as a desktop organiser can make a big difference. Keep your office essentials at arm’s length with practical and affordable desktop organisers. These come in different designs and colour options. You can repurpose mason jars and turn them into personalised organisers.
Take this opportunity to upgrade your home office table by choosing one with built-in organisers. You may choose to create a professional office look with standard office tables with under-desk storage or opt for a more casual feel with decorative office desks with a hutch.
Add some warmth to your home office with a charming storage ottoman. This will not only elevate your storage game but also add some character to your lovely space.

From woven baskets to bamboo storage shelves, there are many functional and charming eco-friendly storage options available on the market.
Organisation and Productivity Tips
Aside from decluttering your home office and upgrading your office furniture, it’s also important to set some goals and create an effective routine. Here are more ways to boost your productivity in 2023.
1. Start Your Day with a Plan
Wake up early to give yourself enough time to prepare and condition your body before going to work. Set achievable goals throughout the day to help you stay focused and motivated.
2. Track Your Progress
Your tasks can become so overwhelming at times that you feel as if you haven't accomplished anything significant. Tracking your progress will not only help you identify what you've already finished but also what still needs to be done. This can also help you determine when and where you are most productive and how you can formulate a timeframe based on your own work style.
3. Create a To-Do List
After setting bigger goals, you may create a list of your smaller goals and tasks so you can stay on-track. Making a to-do list is especially helpful if you have more tasks on your plate. You can do this in a personal journal, on a sticky note that you can place near your office desk, or using a web planner.
4. Organise Your Emails
Categorise your emails to help you find important messages whenever you need them.
5. Keep Your Home Office Clean
Cluttered environment, cluttered mind. A messy office space is not only unsightly during online conferences but is also distracting from your work. Take some time after work to clean up your office desk and rearrange your office supplies to create a more welcoming home office.
6. Take Regular Breaks
Break time is important to keep you focused and productive. Avoid overworking by taking your breaks. Go on a short walk or eat a hearty snack. As much as possible, take your break far from your work area to prevent distractions. This way, you can come back feeling refreshed.
Treat yourself with the right office essentials to boost your comfort and productivity while working at home. From the best office chair, to the right office desk size, and reliable storage, the things that make up your home office can make a big difference. Power your home office with practical home office organisers that fit your specific storage needs.
