We all know the benefits and advantages of working from home, but let’s be honest here.
Sometimes it can suck.
At the “office”, we seem to stretch our legs more. We get free range of the company’s goodies. We even tend to get a few company-offered perks like a sweet office chair and a door we can close.
Working from home, on the other hand, we often have to deal with what we have, like creating a DIY home-office desk.
So, to help you create the perfect work environment, here are some pretty cool home office gadgets that will make working a little easier, and a lot less sucky.
