I have worked from home the better part of the last five years. It’s crazy to think that this October will mark 5 years of being my own boss. Over the years I have realized there are a few work from home essentials that just make it all so much easier. Since I know so many of my boss girl readers do or want to work from home I wanted to share my work from home essentials with you guys.

Work From Home Essentials

A Good Planner: I have talked again and again about what I use for planning. I primarily use a Day Designer and Google Calendar. Both of these are absolute work from home essentials that I could not function without! If you are in need of a great physical planner I love Day Designers!

Great Pens: My go to pens FOREVER have been Pilot Pens. The Pilot G2 comes in 15 colors so it’s perfect for things like color coding a planner, spicing up your daily to do list, and giving a different set color to every member of the family! I love to write in purple; Andrew prefers black or blue. They have the most comfortable grip so they won’t hurt your hand (seriously I wrote about 50 baby shower thank you notes in one day with these) and they are refillable! BOOM! Pilot Pen has two cool initiatives going on around the spirit of overachievement. They’ve partnered with Shonda Rhimes (who we all know and love) to award an Ultimate Overachiever with a $50,000 G2 Overachievers Grant. If you or somebody that you know is an Overachiever, you can submit for the grant here. Also, Pilot is celebrating everyday Overachievers with their G2 Overachievers Club at Target. You can join here and enter to win a $5,000 Target shopping spree and a year’s supply of G2 pens!






Extra Long Charger: I am fairly certain I only use 10 foot phone chargers at this point. I have them in every single room. These are great for anyone if you work from home or not!

Coffee Maker: I am TRYING to be better about making my lattes at home, so I have been using my Starbucks Verisimo a lot lately and it’s about a 1/5 the cost. Plus instead of wasting time driving there I can power through more work!

Go To Snacks: RX Bars have been my go to mid-day snack. I am partial to the kids ones because of the size. The chocolate chip cookie one is the best!

What are some of your work from home essentials?
