Question What's on your home office wish list?
Some of us work from well-designed home offices... others may work from the kitchen table or even the couch. There have been some fun conversations on the forums about what's in our home offices - but I'm curious to know what's on your home office wish list and why?

What would you invest in and add to your home office right now if you could? (links and/or pictures are encouraged!)

As corny as this may sound Tess, I wish I had enough room and money to get a L -shaped desk. I've always worked at one and this straight shelf desk I have and corner desk just isn't doing it for me.

I'm used to moving around and sliding across the room LOL, I need movement and when I find myself sitting still for so long I feel crowded and I get very bored no matter what's on my plate!

Any suggestions?? I told you this was corny. LOL

Sharon,

Have you ever looked at some of your local auction houses. With so many business going under these days they are always overstocked with office furniture. You will most likely be able to find a nice desk for a cheap price.

Most of these places hold public auctions once or twice a month.

One thing that I have wanted and just never purchased is a NeatDesk scanner. Since I have other scanners I have never justified the cost.

I have several Bookkeeping clients and it would be nice to use for scanning and tracking receipts.

Hi Julie,

Yes that NeatDesk Scanner is great. I wouldn't mind adding that to my wish list as well.

Yes I have looked in the past just to do pricing, but it didn't matter, I truly don't have the space for it.

I want the IKEA Expedit sheving unit/workstation because it will not only give me a larger workspace and storage, but it will serve as a divider too since my office is in a corner of my living room. Every time I think I'm ready to buy, I end up needing something else first!! It's my goal for the end of the summer. Of course, to go along with it there are a bunch of Thirty-One bins to go in the shelving unit that I want too.

I invested in a new L-shaped desk with shelves on my 14th anniversary of my business. Up till then I'd been working with a regular desk that was big, heavy duty and purchased from a store that sold ex-govt office furniture. I figured that it was about time and it was definitely a good investment. I don't know that I have anything big on my wishlist now. My office is pretty much how I want it. But I have just recently ordered a new notebook. I decided I wanted something small I could take out of the office to sit in front of the TV with or take to meetings with me - smaller than a laptop but a bit more useability than an Ipad.

A new desk with a larger working area and drawers. Right now I'm working in a very tight area.

Where do I start. My office is so small I don't really have much room, but I would like an L shaped desk too. I would also like a wire binder, mostly for my own use to bind up all the booklets and stuff I download, so I can read them in bed fore I go to sleep. Those plastic ones don't do it for me. I would like a really good laser printer too. Oh and a better lap top as a spare. There is so much more I would like, especially storage. I was lucky and managed to get hold of a lateral filing cabinet which has two very large drawers and it means that my photoprinter and my fax machine can both sit on it with space left over for a small chest of drawers to stock paper etc.

Oh for a bigger office and a large bank account.

Sandra
