Perhaps you’ve heard? Lots of people are working from home these days – many for the first time. While nobody minds sleeping in and skipping the morning commute, there are definitely some adjustments. For one, collaboration can be tricky, considering you can’t just get up and walk over to a co-worker’s desk.
On the other hand, nobody can steal your parking space.
So that’s a win.
Without further ado, here are a few essentials for making your home office feel like, well, an office.
First things first: coffee. Your 9-to-5 mug should be different from your Sunday morning mug. We like this one because of the push-on lid, all the better to prevent spills on your laptop.
We’ve got some news: You’re your own office manager now. And that means new responsibilities, including office supplies. This desktop kit’s a great place to start, with paper clips, sticky notes and sticky flags. Best of all? It doubles as a wireless charging pad.
One of the perks of working at home is you don’t have to worry about distracting anyone, so find your favorite Spotify playlist and turn up the music as loud as you want. We recommend this compact Bluetooth® speaker for lots of reasons – not the least of which is it doubles as a wireless power bank. Talk about multi-tasking!
If you’re used to using a mouse at the office, your laptop’s built-in mousepad can feel kind of awkward. This sleek mouse works wirelessly, meaning one less cord to get in your way.
Sure, you could theoretically work in your pajamas all day. But you’re a professional! And if you’re doing lots of video-conferencing throughout the day, you need to be presentable. The stylish, comfy Amos is made with 34% recycled polyester, so it’s more than a good look – it’s good for the planet, too.
