So, recently, I made a few adjustments to my workstation and must share! For awhile, I have contemplated purchasing a full computer (monitor, keyboard, and all!). However, since I’m working to get out of debt in the near future, I am holding off on making any big purchases that would delay debt freedom.
So, I sought out alternative ways to make my current work-on-laptop situation more comfortable and more inviting to work on.
Here’s a few hacks that have made working on my laptop so much more enjoyable.
Travel Well- Bring Back the Backpack
I used this baby in my undergrad… and boy was it sweet to bring it back to life again! Not only is it sleek, but it also has:
- A padded area to store your laptop,
- A separate pocket for the charger,
- And thick cushion straps that makes holding heavy things, so much lighter!
Did I mention the super cute print inside the bag?!
I don’t think they sell this particular print anymore, but here’s a link to ones similar to mine.
Amazon: Ogio Bag $79.99 (The price has not budged since I bought this a few years ago) But, it is completely worth the price!
Create a Workstation with a Lap-Desk
When working from home, I use the latest addition to my workstation, the Lapdesk. Seriously, there are so many reasons why this makes working so much more comfortable; naming a few:
- Cushion bar at the edge,
- Mouse pad section,
- And the smartphone holder [Genius!]
You Need a Mouse… And a Wireless One
This changed the game for me. This makes scrolling, drag-and-drop, editing, and all the other little navigation(s) so incredibly easier to manage. If you do not have a mouse, you need to make having one, happen! 🙂
Best Buy: Logitech Wireless $12.99
So there you have it- some affordable ways to situate your workstation.
