Work From Home Essentials on a Budget

With working from home looking like the new norm for a lot of Aussies, it is essential to create a space that you can feel a sense of productivity in. 

We’ve created a list of some things to add to your space that will enhance this and won’t break the bank in the meantime!

If you are in a small space, getting a full-sized desk may not be an option. Why not give a Lap table a try? Easily sit the desk onto your bed or couch and adjust the table accordingly. Using this desk is also helpful to avoid back and neck pain and discomfort. 

2. Diffuser – Temple and Webster, $39.95

Having a diffuser and mixing it with essential oils is fantastic for any space. A diffuser is incredibly excellent in your workspace as it can improve energy and concentration levels. We recommend infusing Citrus, Lavender, Peppermint, Eucalyptus or Cinnamon scents to your diffuser for an improvement in an energetic mindset.

3. Back Pillow – eBay, $18.04

 

Working from home, especially if you are working on a couch or a bed makes concentrating ridiculously tricky. These back pillows aim to not only help with improving posture but also help keep the concentration flowing. 

4. Indoor plants – Succulents Australia, $29.50

It is said that indoor plants can improve the quality of air in the space they can occupy. Adding some plant babies can improve productivity; In a study by psychologists, it was found that said productivity can be increased up to 15%. We recommend getting succulents as they are some of the simpler plants you can get that still give you satisfaction.
