elfa Basics – Organise Your Office on a Budget

** Avoid disappointment! The Basics Drawer Sets are only available for a limited time in  January/February and while stocks last **

By the time the New Year swings around, most of us are still plugging a few December budget blowout holes. So with the help of elfa Basics we’ve created an affordable office overhaul project that has your name all over it!

For a limited time and while stocks last, Howards brings to you direct from Sweden “elfa basics” packages of frame and basket sets. Combine these with an old recycled door, some simple elfa shelves and a few other simple organisers and it’s much easier to get your office organised (on a budget!) for the New Year ahead. Here’s what you’re going to need…

elfa Shelves:

The beauty of elfa shelves is that the only component that attaches to the wall is the Safety Top Track. From that you hang the Hanging Wall Band to which you attach brackets and shelves. It’s easy enough to install yourself.

With your new shelves, you can then keep paperwork off the desk. We recommend that you take a moment to organise your shelves into ZONES.

  1. The bottom shelf will house your in-tray and high access zone documents.
  2. The mid shelves become your quick filing zone and they’re allocated to items that you need access to from time to time.
  3. The top shelf becomes your high archive zone for documents you don’t need to see very often, yet need to retain.

These are the items we used to create the shelves and the organisers added to keep the Zones tidy:

The Desk

Here’s where you can have a little creative fun; design a desk by combining two of our elfa Basics Drawer Sets with an up-cycled door! Not sure where to look for a pre-loved door? Scour the internet, head to your local tip or visit a furniture auction house such as Mitchell Road Auctions.
