More and more people are working from home and working remotely which means they need a mobile office! Creating a mobile office is a good idea for everyone who does any traveling for work or visits customers and clients around town. There are two types of mobile offices: 1)a mobile file system and 2)a true office work surface in your car.
To start, ask yourself what you will be doing in the car with your mobile office? What things do you need? How will you use it? Will the mobile office stay in the car or will you take it in an out of places with you? Set up your mobile office the same way you would a real office-create files, label them, and stock it with all the tools you need to do your work.
Once you can answer those questions you will have a better idea of what type of mobile office organizer you need. There are bunch out there, but I have a favorite mobile file system from Office Max and it’s only $14.99! Holds all you need.
If you truly need to work in the car, Jouridock has the coolest docking station that stays in your car. Check it out!
JourniDock is a mobile car office fully equipped for the modern day. Today, with so much of our information stored on our devices or in the cloud, we don’t need to lug around a ton of files. We need a compact mobile workstation where we can take notes and have access to information.
Below is the list of all the things you might want to include in your mobile office-
Contracts & other legal paperwork
Handouts, promo kits, client folders
Letterhead and envelopes, thank you notes, postcards, and notecards, post-it notes
Markers, pens, pencils, paperclips, binder clips, rubberbands, stapels, scissors, tape, stapler
Chargers, USB cables, flash drive, CD’s, DVD’s
The mobile office is great even if you aren’t in business because you can set it up to include coupon files, reading material, a file for each family member with important papers, a pencil pouch with stamps, address labels, notecards, pens, pencils, and scissors. And also a kid friendly kit with crayons, markers, color books, drawing paper, and travel games!
My all time favorite tote is the Organizing Utility tote one from Thirty One Gifts and it makes a fantastic mobile office for the whole family! I have two of them!
I would love to see your mobile office,if you have one, and how you set it up! Be sure to share in the comments!
