Work From Home Must Haves
So the times they are a’ changin’. A lot of people are working from home these days. Whether it be temporary or the new way of life, so many are making the transition to that work from home lifestyle. Since I have been working from home for nearly a decade now, I’m pretty familiar with the home office.
So I would like to share what I have found to be essential when working from home. Even if you’re a seasoned WFH pro like me, you may still want these must-haves in your life! Some are true essentials while others are just fun items to make your little corner of your home feel more exciting to work from each day. So, let’s get into it!

Work From Home Must-Haves
The first must-have is something your back will thank me for. If you are sitting for long hours at a desk chair then you are going to need some proper support. Otherwise, you could end up with pain and back problems, an unfortunate downside to sitting all day.
Solve this potential issue by getting yourself a memory foam backrest cushion. Sit straighter and more comfortable at your desk with this cushy backrest! This is the one I use, and it’s really affordable on Amazon! I have noticed I can sit longer with it and my back isn’t as stiff at the end of the day. I highly recommend it!
The next thing you should really have is something to make your setup more organized. Who doesn’t want that, right? Since there are so many wires and cables all over our desks, why not keep them organized and out of the way using cable clips?!
These cable clips will keep your computer cables out of the way and leaving your home office looking less like a cluttered disaster. They have sticky backs which makes them super easy to just stick onto any surface and push your cables into to keep them out of the way
Before & After
They are also great for keeping your phone charger right where you need it without it just dangling around or getting lost!
If you have an average-sized or larger desk, then this next item is definitely a necessity! Keep important items organized while creating a space for cute decor with this Amazon best-selling desk shelf!
From your office basics to your pictures and plants, put everything you need and all the decor you want on this sturdy shelf! There are 4 colors to choose from and it’s currently on sale! (13% off!) Snag this shelf now to have a more organized, and prettier desk!
Have a lot going on? Work, school, kids, household chores, etc? Of course, you do! Keep everything you’ve got going written down on a fun notepad or planner! It’s so much easier than just setting reminders in your phone. Trust me, writing things down on something that is in your line of sight every day is the way to go!
Keep it on or near your home office/working space, or even just on the fridge! Check off your daily to-do’s and feel the accomplishment! I really like this fun adulting note pad! It’s honest about that adulting life!
Need something to hold your pens? Post Its or just want to make your desk look super cute? Stylish desk organizers are a perfect choice! Keep your pens, notes, and other office accessories at hand with these desk organizers!
Oh, and yes, these are rose gold, my current obsession! Of course, you can find similar ones in other colors too! Grab these to give your little space a colorful pop of needed organization!
Your next work from home must-have isn’t something for your desk, but something to help make sure everything you’re writing (or, typing rather…) is correct and profesh! I’m talking about the awesome Google extension that is Grammarly.
Grammarly is a free Google extension that you install on your computer to automatically correct any spelling or grammar mistakes! Horray for that, right?! I would hate to go without it and once you start using it too, you won’t want to ever go without it either!
You can easily install Grammarly by clicking here!
Did you know that the blue light from our screens and devices can damage your eyes? It can also mess with our sleep cycle and cause headaches! So, since we have a lot of screentime, having some blue light blocking glasses is an absolute work from home must have!
I wear mine every day and absolutely love them! They won’t cost you an arm and a leg either, you can find some affordable and really cute options! So grab yourself some blue light blocking glasses and save your eyes!
The last thing you need to make your new work from home life easier….or, ok, maybe not easier but…better, is a classic boss mug. Keep your coffee hot and looking good at your desk with a mug that reminds you that you are a fabulous boss mama!
I have my eye on this one (below). You should get it and then we’ll be mug twins! (too much?) 😛
