5 Must-Haves for a Great Home Office

With so many of us working from home, it’s important to have an office space that inspires us to be productive. We need the right furniture and the right technological equipment. But thanks to Groupon Coupons, we don’t have to pay full prices to get the essentials. And at Sam’s Club, there are a wide range of products to make our home offices flourish. Here are a few basics for every home office.

1. A Computer
The pride of every home office is the computer. And in this world of high technology you need it to have quick speed internet access and e-mail. And if you have to travel, consider adding a laptop or similar device to the mix.

2. Furniture
Get a desk that’s the right height for your eyes, neck and head, and a chair that provides good support for your back. Sam’s Club has a lot of different options. You can access these with your coupons. Get a feel of what’s on offer before making your final choice. If your desk and chair are not welcoming, you won’t spend much time in your fancy workstation. Invest in file cabinets for neatly storing your documents and a series of shelves for holding your books and other reference material.

3. Surge Protectors and Backup
The surge protectors safeguard your computer and its support equipment from damage when there’s a sudden power surge following a power failure. Backup equipment will also automatically save your work and close down your equipment when the power suddenly goes off.

4. Multipurpose Printer
A multi-task printer allows you to print, fax, photocopy and scan all at once. The less standalone units, the better. You don’t want an office that’s cluttered. Plus an all-in-one reduces the number of cables you can trip over.

5. Fireproof Box
You need a fireproof box for storing and protecting your most important business work and also your backup copies.  Working at home can be great when you have all the essentials for optimal performance. But treat it like you would, an away-from-home office. Keep information confidential and keep the kids out.

Are there other items you find essential for your home office?

  1. This is a really good post. I don’t have room yet to have a home office myself – but at some point I will be making me one. I like how you put a fireproof box in with the list – that could be one of the most important features of having a home office!

  2. I never would have thought of a fireproof box for the home office! Thanks so much!

  3. Thank you for this! My main goal for the new year is to organize our little apartment and I plan to carve an office space out for myself! I’ll keep this check list in mind!
