    39 Things That’ll Help Anyone Whose WFH Space Is An Absolute Disaster

    Desk organizers, ergonomic furniture, cute and useful decor, and problem-solving items for the home office.

    1. A bamboo two-tier monitor stand designed to bring your computer to a better height so you can avoid neck and eye strain as you work.

    2. A selfie ring light ideal for anyone struggling through Zoom conference calls in a low-lit room.

    3. An interlocking drawer organizer that'll give your desk drawer a total head-to-toe makeover.

    4. An adjustable rolling desk so you can create a mini workstation in your bedroom or in front of the couch — reviewers who work from home in small spaces swear by it!

    5. A WFH whiteboard sign that’ll hopefully lead to less interruptions. It’ll let your roomies/family know your current status and when you’ll be free to make grilled cheeses and watch some TV.

    6. An adjustable wood shelf for your desk to ensure you have plenty of space for notebooks, knickknacks, pens and pencils, house plants, and other necessities.

    7. A set of cute and highly useful expandable file folders so you can take that bin full of work papers down to a manageable size.

    8. A portable dual monitor that won’t break the bank *and* comes with features you’ll adore — like a rotating display and a magnetic pull strong enough to take your laptop from room to room without undoing your setup. Now you can increase your workspace screen capacity, or play some baby sensory videos to entertain the cat (who otherwise wants to lay on the keyboard) while you work!

    9. A colorful wireless keyboard and mouse set to make typing easier and add a pop of color to your WFH setup.

    The set includes a wireless mouse and a wireless keyboard with a USB receiver. AA batteries not included.

    Promising review: "So, I just transitioned to work from home and wanted a cool keyboard for my new workspace. I tried two others, and they worked but I wasn’t 100% happy with the style, shape, nor color. A friend showed me her keyboard, and I fell in love with it. Hers was the pink/colorful option. I immediately went on Amazon and found the purple/lilac and ordered. I received it today, and I’m so pleased. I’m one of those who love hearing the click-clack sound of keys being hit with my nails and the weight of the keyboard is nice and heavy — it feels well made. I’m still getting use to the mouse it’s a wider shape then I’m use to, but it works and matches my keyboard. Now if only I could find a purple monitor, LOL. I highly recommend this keyboard. Happy typing!" —Kimberly Renee

    Get it from Amazon for $35.99+ (available in 12 colors).

    10. A Wi-Fi extender for those of us working from home with some of the spottiest Wi-Fi ever 😭. It's also ideal for anyone working in the quiet but far corner of the house where the signal could use a major boost!

    11. A portable mini air purifier boasting three fan speeds and a HEPA filter. It'll clear the air of dust, pollen, smoke, and odor — because no one wants a workday full of allergens.

    13. An investment-worthy ergonomic office stool that offers a firm yet comfy place to sit and move freely throughout the workday. You can rock back and forth *or* side to side on this stool, and this movement helps train your sense of balance, exercises multiple muscle groups, naturally straightens your back, and prevents pain.
