Working from home can sound like a dream come true — until you start doing it. While working wherever you want and wearing whatever you want are definite perks, most work-from-homers realize after a few weeks that being on your couch in your pajamas doesn't exactly make it easy to get the job done.
Here are some office gadgets that will help you work better without leaving the comfort of your own home.
1. Duro-Med Relax-a-Bac ($16)
Duro-Med Relax-a-Bac adds an extra little boost to your office chair by helping you avoid slouching down further and further as the day goes on, offering solid lower back support. There's an elastic strap to anchor it on the chair, and the cover is removable and machine-washable. Buy it on Amazon.
This rolling laptop desk cart lets you enjoy one of the biggest perks of working from home: not being tethered to any one desk in any one office. As an extra bonus, there's a side table for your coffee or anything else you might want to set down next to your laptop. Buy it on Amazon.
3. Knock Knock This Week Pad ($10)
This open-face planner gives you space to jot down your entire week and look ahead to the next week all on one page. If you need to get more detailed about the tasks on your agenda, there are other versions of the Knock Knock pad, including the Knock Knock To Do Pad and a Get Your Sh-t Together Pad for an extra motivational kick. Buy it on Amazon.
4. HP OfficeJet Pro 8620 ($200)
This all-in-one machine lets you copy, scan, fax, wireless print, AirPrint, and two-sided duplex print. It also features a color touchscreen to scope out all the options. Even handier, the HP OfficeJet Pro offers mobile printing so you can print from your smartphone or tablet without ever getting off the couch. Buy it on Amazon.
The worst part about working in coffee shops or your public library has to be when you finally settle in, only to notice your laptop is dying and there isn't an available outlet in sight. This portable battery comes in three different sizes, and offers USB ports as well as an AC outlet so you can charge up your computer, tablet, and phone all at once. Buy it on Amazon.
6. Bose QuietComfort 20 ($299)
Have noisy neighbors, neighborhood construction, or just a rattling air conditioner that you've been dying to drown out? These Bose headphones have earned top-notch reviews. While the earbuds cancel out all sound, there's also the option to tune back in quickly at the touch of a button in case there is something that you do need to hear. Buy it on Amazon.
