In an effort to work toward a paperless office, I have digitized a good deal of my information. No longer do I need an in/out tray, paper clips and other office essentials of yesteryear.

Even if I don’t need an in/out tray, an upright letter holder can be used for a variety of purposes. I still get bills for certain things (not everything is digitally available yet), so need to keep them all in one place. I could see myself using this to store my digital items, too—like my iPad and cellphone, perhaps. All my notebooks will need a home as well, so that they’re handy to grab and actually write in.

With your information digitized you have many more options for organization of information—plus you don’t need to worry about paper files being lost or damaged. This Fujitsu SCANSNAP S1100 is great because it is so small—I’ve taken it travelling with me to scan in business cards, brochures etc. so I don’t need to carry around all the paper.
Remember to back up your digital information, pictures and music on an external harddrive, like this one, which includes a thumb drive:
Cord-management will always be an issue in any office, even a home one. Keep things manageable with cord bundles for gadgets you don’t use everyday:
