Your home office should be a place where you feel comfortable doing your best work day after day. A team of work-from-home veterans spent more than 150 hours researching and testing equipment for a variety of workspaces and picked out a selection of great gear, including things that many of us use daily in our own home offices.
Brighton Professional Black Wire Mesh Square Wastebasket
Modern and lean container stands up straight, lets your trash breathe, and works with or without a bag.
However, if you’re looking to do heavy-duty shredding and get through bigger piles of paper faster, our upgrade pick, the Fellowes 100% Jam Proof Shredder 73Ci, may be a better option.
Eufy Lumos ADesk Lamp
One of the best combinations of brightness, color temperature, and minimal glare, the Ais also widely adjustable and surprisingly affordable.
Along with natural daylight, dimmable ceiling lighting, and (if needed) freestanding lamps, a good desk lamp helps to provide layered, multidirectional lighting, which reduces eyestrain and irritation. Multiple, adjustable office lights reduce the contrast between the light on the object you are focused on and the surrounding area, allowing for detailed focus and the prevention of headaches. Adjustable desk lamps can make you more active and productive with cool light, or they can calm your mind and help you prepare for sleep after late-night work with warm hues. The link between color temperature and productivity is not concrete, however; some people may prefer warm lighting for long work hours, depending on their temperament and the tasks of their job.
We researched two dozen desk lamps and spent 2hours testing them. In our full guide on LED desk lamps, we recommend the Eufy Lumos ADesk Lamp as the best choice for most people. It has five brightness settings and four color-temperature modes which help make working at home—at any time of the day—a bit more comfortable. Its frosted panel eliminates direct glare and both its head and arm are more adjustable than others that we tested in the same price range. The Lumos’s nonreplaceable bulb promises to shine for 50,000 hours. Overall, we think the Ahas the best balance of style and functionality, at the best price, of all the other lamps we considered.
If you’re willing to spend a little more and are looking for a lamp that’s even brighter and has a broader range between color-temperature settings, consider our upgrade pick, the Eufy Lumos ELED Desk Lamp. Its head and arms pivot and tilt like the A4’s, but this lamp comes equipped with a rotating base that has two USB charging ports. It also has a backlit touch panel that makes it easier to turn on in the dark.
The IKEA Forså, a more affordable option for those on a budget, looks better than any multiple-setting LED lamp we saw at a reasonable price, and it has a 6-foot-long cord and a small weighted base that frees up surface space. This stylish, adjustable lamp was our previous top pick and throws a warm light on documents or around your desk. The drawback: It doesn’t have brightness or color-temperature settings but IKEA sells bulbs for the Forså with a 2,700-kelvin “warm daylight” temperature, and LED candelabra bulbs with a cooler temperature that are uncommon and somewhat pricey. That limitation is fine if you use the Forså exclusively for calm reading or for nighttime work. If you use it as your main desk light, your other office lighting must be warm, or the conflicting temperatures (colors) may cause discomfort. —Kevin Purdy and Anna Perling
The Duck EZ Start tape dispenses silently.
The Duck EZ Start dispenser is a little confusing to load the first time—the tape goes behind the plastic tabs and in front of the roller—and doesn’t come with directions, but it isn’t too hard to figure out with a quick Google search. Some tapes we tested, such as the Scotch Heavy Duty Shipping Packaging Tape, were extremely loud. The Duck EZ Start tape dispenses silently, which is a nice perk.
Cons: Not as high-end as pricier alternatives
Small Appliances: Fan, Coffee Maker, Hand Vacuum, Mini Fridge, Microwave

The Midea Compact Refrigerator is just the right size for any dorm, measuring 17.x 18.x 19.inches.

Small gemstone jars with foam inserts.
Plastic containers with dividers are a practical and inexpensive storage option.
A lightweight plastic container with dividers to store gemstones.
One space-saving gemstone collection option is to store your pieces in a parcel paper organizer. These organizers are designed to hold industry-standard small paper envelopes called gemstone parcel papers or diamond papers. These envelopes are acid-free to help keep stones in top condition while in storage.
A parcel paper organizer holds parcel papers with gemstones for easy storage.
You can label the papers to identify their contents, and some suppliers can even provide different colored liners to augment the color play of specific gemstones. Some typical paper colors for popular gemstones are:
If you travel frequently with individual pieces or with a significant portion of your gemstone collection, consider lightweight storage containers, such as small plastic display boxes or specially designed traveling gemstone cases.
Preparing Your Gemstone Collection For Storage And Display
Before you store your gemstones, clean your gemstones. This is a critical first step. Our gemstone care guide and gemstone jewelry care series of articles are great resources for properly cleaning and caring for your collection. You can invest in a state-of-the-art storage case and industry-standard parcel papers, but if your gemstones are dirty, oil and grime will slowly diminish their beauty and value even if they’re tucked away securely.
Once you’ve cleaned your gemstones, you’ll need to consider how to sort your collection.
Start by grouping like with like. Separate your gems into piles by species. Use a jeweler’s tweezers to handle the gems to keep from soiling them again. You should also identify any individual stones that are particularly fragile and wrap them in jeweler’s tissue paper.
You can choose to keep your gemstones sorted by species, or you can subdivide them into size, color, origin (country, state, or mine), etc., or any other gemological or personal criteria. Be sure when the time comes to place your gems in storage that you keep harder stones securely separated from softer stones.
If you have gemstones you want to store individually, place each carefully inside a gem jar, bag, or envelope before placing it in the storage case. You can place small loose stones (of the same hardness) together inside a bag or envelope.
Cataloging Your Gemstone Collection
Label each jar, packet, or envelope with, at the very least, the gemstone name. (Small adhesive labels of all kinds are readily available if your containers do not include them). Of course, you can also include any other information you wish: weight, color, origin, appraised value, etc. Make sure to position the labels so you can read them easily. Alphabetical order is a practical way of arranging your pieces, but you can choose any system you like.
Often involves ‘commoditised’ products and services.
Generally try to automate arrangements and processes, so as to reduce transaction costs, variability and amount of time and effort required to maintain supply and renegotiations.
Establish efficient processes. Minimise time and activity for both sides.
Buyers have extensive choice because of the number of suppliers available and the competition between them.
Buyers can exercise volume leverage to get the best deals.
More aggressive buying tactics are acceptable and you should swap between the many undifferentiated yet adequate suppliers.
The important step is to remember that even if you have little information, it doesn’t actually effect where the real market pressures are. In other words let the market decide their position, not your lack of knowledge.
Use Storage Bins in Your RV Shelves
Storage bins are probably the number one most important piece of the RV organization puzzle. We have a dozen, and could probably use two dozen more. You can use them in cupboards, drawers, and in the outside storage compartments. Label them for bonus points!
To avoid a painful, cold injection, many diabetes educators suggest keeping insulin at room temperature while it’s being used. Insulin should last about one month at room temperature. Many people prefer to keep the diabetes supplies in a kitchen or bedroom drawer. That way, the glucose monitor, syringes, insulin, lancets, alcohol swabs, and other necessary supplies are always together and available for use.
Always think ahead. You never want to risk being without the supplies and medicine you need. Keep extra supplies on hand to reduce the risk of a diabetic emergency. If you use insulin, you can store extra bottles in the refrigerator and take a bottle out so it has time to warm to room temperature before giving yourself an injection.
Never freeze insulin or store it in a hot location. If you purchase insulin from a pharmacy, be sure to take it home soon after buying it to avoid extreme temperatures. Also, keep test strips dry, and don’t expose them to moisture or extreme heat or cold or you may damage the integrity of the strip.

Wire Shelving Materials
The primary difference between different types of wire shelving is the materials they’re made of. Virtually all wire shelving is made from steel, but most units are coated with another layer of material to give them a finish with desirable properties like rust-resistance, cleanability, and an attractive appearance. Here’s a rundown of popular finishes and what benefit each provides:
Epoxy is a rubber-like coating used on wire shelving to protect the bare metal underneath from rust and make the shelving easier to clean. Typically, the epoxy coating will be green, a standard across the industry, though some manufacturers offer other colors. These are a great budget storage solution for wet, high-humidity areas like dishrooms and walk-in coolers.
Chrome-plated shelving is valued for its sparkling appearance, ease of cleaning, and durability. It’s made with a chrome plating over steel wire that tends to hold up well over time. Use these for dry storage that demands a good level of abuse-resistance; near work stations in the middle of busy kitchens, for example. Chrome shelving isn’t recommended for use in wet, humid environments.
Stainless steel shelving is typically considered to be the premium variety. It tends to be the longest lasting and has an attractive appearance. It’s good for high-humidity, high-abuse situations, and can be used in walk-in coolers and freezers.
Essential Wire Shelving Accessories
A number of accessories are available to outfit your wire shelving units, including:
Label holders to help keep your supplies well organized and easy to identify.
Storage baskets for expanding your storage capacity and storing bulky items like textiles that don’t sit well on shelves.
First of all thanks for reading my article to the end! I hope you find my reviews listed here useful and that it allows you to make a proper comparison of what is best to fit your needs and budget. Don’t be afraid to try more than one product if your first pick doesn’t do the trick.
