Technically, the official Organize Your Home Office Day is observed in March, but I believe an[y day you feel the inspiration to organize or clean should be celebrated.
The truth is that it doesn’t matter what day you do it, as long as you take the time to organize your home office. So today is as good a day as any.
Even if you’re not self-employed, you may still have a home office for paying bills or organizing files. Take a few minutes today to put everything in order. And share on social media with #organizeyourhomeofficeday.
