If you are reading this post, then you probably are learning or working at home during this pandemic! Ever since the world shut down, people find it extremely hard to focus on their responsibilities within their home. Here are some things you need in your home office to make sure you stay on top of your work!!

1. Your Computer

You can’t have a home office without your computer! Try to put this in a well-lighted area for zoom meetings. A monitor is optional, but sometimes very helpful for students.


Make sure you are close to your router to avoid technical difficulties when working!

3. Desk

It’s super important to have a desk area where you can focus on your responsibilities. You need to be able to have an area that’s strictly for your work!

4. A Comfy Chair

You don’t want to be uncomfortable! You’re going to be spending a lot of time in it. So you want to make sure it’s good quality!

5. A Lamp

Lamps to help your lighting of course! This helps you when you’re staying up late to do your homework.

6. Surge Protector

It’s always helpful to have these around! There will be a million different cords to plug in, and this will help you have the space for them.

7. Printer

You may need to print out some assignments! If you are like me and save past assignments for your future, this comes in handy!

8. File Cabinet

For all of your assignments of course! Also a very simple and convenient way to stay organized.

9. Calendar

This can help you stay organized daily! Being home, sometimes we lose track of our assignments. This helps you stay on task!

10. Door

Make sure you can shut out everyone in your household! No distractions!

11. Healthy Snacks

It’s easy to grab something quick and easy. Make sure you have some healthy snacks in your office so you’re taking care of yourself!

12. Pictures

Surround yourself with pictures of your favorite people, places, pets, etc.

13. Headphones

These come in handy for those zoom calls!

14. White Board

Just in case you need to brainstorm ideas, write down goals, or reminders, etc.

15. Pens, Pencils, Notebooks!

Even though we’re all virtual, you can still take notes!!

I hope this is somewhat helpful to you and your new home-office! Good luck!
