Spring Home Office Tips

By  | 

Just in time for Spring cleaning, In Her Shoes has enlisted the expertise of lifestyle blogger extraordinaire, Melinda Lewis of Get Togetha, to share a few priceless tips for sprucing up your home office.


In today’s economic downturn many people will be working from home to save on their commute, finally starting that novel ’cause they were downsized, helping Tyler Perry write his nineteenth play, learning about e-commerce or even launching that new blog.

Before you start shopping to jazz up the home office, take a look at these budget-friendly suggestions. By putting these easy-to-follow tips into action, you may realize that you don’t really need that much. Your plan can be visualized and/or written down but remember, having one will help you avoid buyer’s remorse.

Following are a few ideas for creating a modern chic space that’s fly enough to inspire your muse. The first step, of course, is de-cluttering your office.



The same closet-cleaning rule we hear all the time applies to your office too, ladies. If you haven’t used the questionable item in over a year – toss it! Still holding on to the ugly mouse pad that actually serves as a cup holder? Time to say goodbye. What about the 2005 calendar you’ve been meaning to take down for years? Good riddance!

After you de-clutter, following are a few basics you’ll need: 

1. A sturdy yet comfy office chair

2. A desk or table

3. A fabu light source

3. A trash can

4. Filing system

5. Decorative storage

6. Writing instruments

7. Journal/planner


Nice Extras…

1. Plant and/or flowers

2. Clock

3. Shredder

4. Corkboard
