What I bought for my work-at-home space


When Hawai’i went into lockdown mode in March, it was time to switch gears and move work life to home. It started out miserably. I was thrown into the deep end of back to back appointments on the computer. I literally set up shop on a night stand and an ottoman in my bedroom. It quickly became clear that I needed to invest in a few things to make this space work for me.

Here are some of the necessities that have helped get me through the past 5 months.

1. Desk: I found this basic desk, which is the perfect size for my computer and work essentials. Different color options available.

2. Wireless keyboard & mouse: This was a good investment, as I got a laptop stand, and it just makes it easier to navigate the computer, when you’re on there all day.

3. Laptop stand: Save your neck and prevent headaches with this handy item for elevating your laptop.

4. Desktop fan: I’m spoiled and used to being in an airconditioned office. I don’t have a/c at home, so I needed a little fan to keep me cool in this summer heat, while working from my desk.

5. Planner: This wasn’t a new quarantine item, but I wanted to give a shoutout to my favorite planner. It has kept me organized, and as we go between lockdown and opening up and then lockdown again, it reminds me of where I need to be and who I’m supposed to be prepared to meet with.

Let me know what you’ve used to get through work-at-home life.
