I would love a bigger desk, and all the equipment to be in the same area! The modem in is my bedroom hooked up to my husband's monster computer, so I have my fax/copier and phone base on a shelf in my closet because we didn't want chords all over my apartment. So I have to walk back and forth, and make sure I have the back up phone charging. Lol. I'm a sucker for office organization stuff too! I could waste an afternoon at IKEA and Staples.

Have you tried goodwill or salvation army? I found a great home workstation at goodwill for pennies on the dollar!

I am looking into purchasing a more comfortable chair. I have an office chair but I can never seem to get comfortable in it.

I want a really good microphone for video/audio recordings. I have an Audio Technica 2020 on my "to buy" list, but my son has a different on his list. I may wait until he gets his to test it before buying the other...which comes highly recommended.

More desk space and work surface. I'm moving soon and the spare bedroom will be my office so I'm looking and planning.

I have about 1/6 of our den but I love it because I can look out a window onto our property. I just put up a tiny whiteboard which makes me happy.

I want a L-shaped desk, a more comfortable office chair, and a really nice all-in-1 printer.

Well, I actually want a whole lot more than that but I won't show my greed... yet.

I would love to have a big desk with lots of room on the top for two monitors and reference books, a big comfortable chair, big windows that let in a lot of light. I found a nice photo on HGTV.com:

I'd also like to get a bigger desk for a dual monitor. There are times where I have my laptop, desktop and iPhone going at the same time.

For me, it would be a NeatDesk organizer, another external hard drive, two design programs for my Mac, and a new Windows desktop (monitor with built-in CPU).

I really need to get a better hands-free device for my cell phone. The one I have was a replacement, provided by Motorola when my original one stopped working. I've never really liked it and found the range to be way to small, e.g., loose my connection just walking to the bathroom. But this means going to the store, or doing research online and I just don't have the motivation to do it. My wish list may remain just that.

My office wishlist is a "real office". Prior to breaking my leg in October, I was putting my office together, I have a computer desk in there-my fiance has the ironing board along with everything else that is considered junk! My goal is to start making my office an office and get the following:
1) a desktop computer (I have a laptop now)
2) a Neatdesk scanner
3) a printer/copier (I saw one on Xerox website that I want)
4) a real office desk
5) wall to floor bookcases
6) a really nice bamboo swivel chair (for relaxing and meditating)

Tess,
I think I would invest in some of the software that I have read about in the threads!

My next purchase will be a printer/scanner/fax machine. My current scanner only scans a page at a time. Any suggestions would be welcome.

Hello Everyone! Wow..so many wonderful wants...let's see..for me...I would love plants. I have cats and there are so many plants they will chew on that they are not supposed to..but I love the feeling of bringing the outdoors inside. I think it can be very relaxing and I love to go into the offices that have a fountain, and plants....hmmm...maybe ..since my cats are indoors...I need to move my office outside! Weather permitting, of course. : )

I'm definitely looking forward to getting a scanner and printer soon. Other than that, I can't think of anything else right now. I don't like my office to be too crowded lol.

I'm just starting out, so my wishlist is a mile long. My top two currently are a comfy chair, which I'm actively shopping for, and an armoire-style desk. I have a small house and my office will be in the open living/dining room. I really want to be able to "close up shop" at the end of the day.

I want/need a newer, faster and reliable printer/copier/fax/scanner. The one I have was somewhat inexpensive but what I could afford. It's so slow and the wireless connection is spotty.

I also want
a L shaped desk
Book shelf
Large dry erase board
