A little bit goes a long way when it comes to making your home office more comfortable and easier to use. Whether you work from home all the time or just when your boss lets you, it should be a place you feel energized and productive with all of the right tools at your fingertips. Let's build a list of the best budget upgrades to get you there.
If I gave you $50 to spend on home office upgrades, what would you do with it? That's the price limit we're putting on our list of office upgrades. Maybe it'd be a new coat of paint that'd get you energized to work in the morning, or maybe it'd be some fancy organizational gadget that would keep all of your important documents within arm's reach. Maybe it'd be materials for a DIY project. Whatever it is, we want to hear it! We'll get you started with some upgrades we think are worth the money, but we're really interested in yours. Here's how to format your home office upgrade idea:
Include a picture! Anything to add a little visual interest, especially if it's something you can just order and have shipped to your house.
One upgrade per comment please! Let's keep it simple and easy to read—if you have multiples, and we hope you do, add them as separate comments! Help us picture your ideal home office!
Try not to repeat upgrade options! If you see someone who's already suggested something you wanted to mention, click the star and reply to their comment to give them a boost!
Tell us why it's useful! What do you want it for? How would you use it in your home office, if you don't already have one?
So then, let's begin! We'll get you started, but we're really interested in yours, so fire away.
