Best gadgets for employees who can still work from home
Do you work for Yahoo! or Best Buy? If yes, you can probably stop reading right now.
Now that everyone chained to their work desk is gone, we can talk about the joy and freedom of working from home. Anyone who’s been able to roll out of bed, fire up their laptop and start their workday in pajamas with a bowl of cereal in hand knows how beneficial it can be to log a few days at work from the home-office, but there’s a difference between “working” from home while clearing out your DVR and those who work from home and actually accomplish something. To do the latter, you need the right tools for the job.
For instance, if you don’t have the luxury of using a laptop at work, you’re going to need a portable way to sign onto your work servers to get things done. Luckily Walmart has a number of tablets that would work great for using the Internet to get work done while offering up a tremendous amount of portability so you could work from bed, the couch or anywhere else you desired. Right now, Walmart is offering 2 percent cash back on purchases, too.
Set up your home office
Perhaps your home isn’t even wired for a connect-anywhere mobile office environment. If that’s the case, OfficeMax is worth a look thanks to their large selection of wireless routers. Why stay stuck with a wired connection when you can get a wireless dual band router that will make it easier than ever to stay connected to the web while you nail down those last minute reports. As if you needed any more incentive, you can grab 5 percent cash back from OfficeMax as well.
If you want to take your home office to the next level, I’d suggest an all-in-one printer. I’ve got one of these and am amazed at how often I end up scanning documents, printing information, and faxing clients in the same day. This particular HP also has a copier. If you grab it from Best Buy you’ll also net yourself 2 percent cash back, enough money to buy plenty of printer paper.
Working from home is a real treat as long as you have the discipline and tools for the job. We can’t help you stay focused, but at least with gadgets we suggested you’ll be better prepared for whatever task you have to complete.
