Your Home Office Organization or Tech Tip: Believe it or not, it's still possible to have a clean and simple home office while having a full-size tower! I'm a full-time student with freelancing as my only source of income, so I simply can't afford to buy an aesthetically well-designed computer. For my setup, I managed to buy the longest cables I could find, and chose to route everything (but the monitor, keyboard and mouse) into a closet ten feet away. This way, my workspace is silent, and I still get the simplicity that I need to concentrate. Everything in my office cost less than $1,000 total, and the constraints I had to work with ended up being a blessing in the end!
