I know there are lot of you out there who are fellow Work From Home Warriors/Moms. Let’s just take a moment and give ourselves a high five for accomplishing ANYTHING. Seriously. I know we all LOVED this video because it gave a the rest of the world a look into our daily lives…
But it doesn’t matter if you work full time hours or just during nap time/after bedtime, your workplace needs to work well for you! Here’s a checklist along with some recommendations for great products that I use or would love to own in my work space:
A Dedicated Space
It doesn’t matter if you get a corner or a whole room, you need a space that is YOURS. Not a place for graded homework to pile up. Not a space for bills to rest. Not a space for toys. Not a space for *insert any one of the million pieces of random things your kids have.* No. It’s YOUR space. Tell your partner and your kids to BACK AWAY!
You can’t work if your space is totally cluttered. (Or at least most people can’t!) Check out these awesome storage options from Pinterest:
Love this storage system from Ikea Decor’s
Storing files if you need to from Martha Stewart.com
A great mix of drawers & shelves from decorology.com
Who wouldn’t benefit from this office supply closet in their home from Carla Aston Designed
Custom painted storage bins from Listotic
The Perfect Ergonomic Chair
It is incredible what a difference a comfortable and ergonomic chair makes. While there are lots of great options out there, I have had this yoga ball chair and for a few years and I LOVE it.
If you’re a little smaller like me and your feet dangle, you might also want to look into a step stool. I like this one because I like to massage my feet on the roller balls and it is highly adjustable:
Or if you like to rest your feet up high, this foot hammock is adorable.
Here are a few of my favorite options from Target. If you buy online, don’t forget to use your Ebates for cash back! It adds up!
An Affordable Standing Desk Option
I have never had a standing desk… until recently. And I have to say I LOVE IT. I think I found the PERFECT standing desk because it’s CHEAP, super durable, and it’s 100% optional. It’s the Ergodiven Spark Cardboard Standing Desk. I store it under my desk when want to sit, when I don’t I pull this out and stand! The best part? It’s only $20.
