Tip #4: Use a “Grab & Go” Tote(Part of the
31 Days of Home Office Organizing Tips)
Client appointments, speaking engagements, board & association meetings or even a trip to the beach. I’ll be you take the same things with you each time you go, right?
Make it easy on yourself.
Pack one tote for your most frequent engagements. An example, for board meetings: Fill a tote with your handbook, notebook or recorder for notes, business cards and something to write with. Keep it in your cabinet drawer or a hook and it’s ready to grab and go for your next meeting.
Don’t want a bunch of totes hanging around? Instead of a bag, make a list of what is needed for each engagement. The night before, pull out the list put them all in your briefcase, put it by the door and you’re ready to go the next day. No more frantic rushes to get out the door and less chances you will forget something.
