23 Essentials You’ll Love For Going To Work Or School This Year

Going to work was the norm back in the day, pre-COVID, however, telecommuting and remote working were a growing trend long before they became a pandemic necessity. With so many technological resources available, remote workers can be even more productive because they can focus on the essentials of the job without the distraction of the workplace; assuming of course that they have the right space to effectively work from home. While many offices are requiring employees to come back into the office as life returns to “normal”, there are still plenty of people who will continue working from home for the foreseeable future.

Let’s not forget that even though school may be back in session, it doesn’t necessarily mean that you’re done shopping. Today we offer a few ideas, products, and resources that should make going to work and going back to school a breeze regardless of whether it’s downstairs or an hour away.

Working from home has changed our perspective on the things that are important in life. Photo albums, treasured trinkets, and obviously our loved ones are the first things that come to mind, but now that we have come to the other side of a tragic and difficult year, we recognize the need to have the tools to save these treasured memories for future enjoyment and preservation. Finding technological gear may feel overwhelming when you’re online looking for answers, but choosing a trusted name is always a safe bet. That’s why this year, we are choosing Seagate for our professional and personal needs this fall when going to work.

Going to work requires two things: a power source and an unlimited source of patience. If your PC or Mac has been operating subpar, then it may be time to upgrade your hard drive. Gaming enthusiasts know the importance of storage space and speed, but if you enjoy gaming on the same computer you’re working on all day then the FireCuda Gaming Hub may be the answer to your prayers.

Give your computer the update that you need with the FireCuda Gaming Hub. This hub features up to 16TB of capacity, and features customizable RGB LED lighting, so not only will your computer function optimally (which is a total game-changer) it will also pump up your home’s atmosphere. Additionally, the featured dual front-facing USB-C and USB-A ports will allow you to connect and power all your devices in one place.

Everyone knows what “the cloud” is, and many of us just know that we need it and don’t need to fully understand the mechanics of how it works. Unfortunately, relying on cloud-based backups can have devastating consequences. Give yourself the security of knowing that you’re always prepared with the One Touch SSD. This external hard drive, available in 16 GB, 1 TB, or 2 TB helps you seamlessly and quickly transfer large files to keep them on hand no matter what.

Daily-mom-parent-portal-Must-Have Essentials That'll Make Going To Work Or School A Breeze

This drive is small and super-portable so it can travel easily in your backpack or your purse. With this level of capacity, and plug and play capability (either on Windows or Mac) going to work is seamless from this drive, even if you don’t have access to the cloud. Plus, the One Touch SSD has enough storage space to keep your treasured photos and videos safe. There is even an Android app to help you automatically back them up.

Seagate has made it easier than ever to work and play with security and speed, and after the year we’ve all had, that news is greeted with a collective sigh of relief.

Heading back to the office for many of us means returning to a more traditional work environment, meaning desks or cubicles, computer task chairs, and ultimately more sitting than we have likely experienced over the last year. The one thing working and homeschooling may have allowed at least some of us to do is move around our home office or workspace, getting in our steps and likely spending more waking hours outdoors with our kids, pets, and families more than ever before. Returning to the office doesn’t have to be a pain in the back (literally) with fully and their office space solutions! We love fully not only for their standing desks, work tables, and ultimate workspace solutions but also for their innovative products that can be used to simply modify existing workspaces without all new furniture or a full remodel. fully is here to make work less of a chore and to make your environment more enjoyable, ergonomic, and all-around physically friendly; with furniture “designed to keep you moving”, fully’s wide range of standing desks, task chairs, standing desk converters, and more guarantees to keep you moving all day long.

As our kids head back to school, for many of us parents who have been working from home this past year it is also time to head back to the office. While you may be dreading the in-person meetings, regular hours, and the need to wear pants, with a few necessary additions to your office you should be ready to hit the ground running as we get back into the swing of things. Whether you are continuing to work from home or heading back into the office one thing we can all use for those long hours at the computer is supportive, ergonomic seating. So many traditional office chairs can leave you with a stiff back and sore bum by the end of the week so purple has engineered the Ultimate Seating Bundle just for you. From the home office to the classroom to the dorm room, the seat cushions and lumbar support cushions from purple are a must for your back to work supply list!

Purple took their innovative purple grid featured in their beds and created the Ultimate Seat Cushion, ideal for everyone who spends time sitting, whether working, gaming, or even driving. From long hours at your desk (think 8+ minimum) to those who frequently slouch, bend or slump, the Ultimate Seat Cushion from purple will keep you comfortably working with a longer, wider, and deeper design meant to fit larger chairs or support heavier weight. Benefits of this seat cushion include a contoured groove at the back of the cushion that encourages proper posture and spinal alignment, while also keeping your tailbone supported and cozy and your bum cool.

Perfect for pairing with the Ultimate Seat Cushion is the Purple Back Cushion which provides the ultimate lumbar support for those who experience lower to middle back pain and sitting for extended periods of time. Crafted of 100% grid material, this lower back cushion offers comfy, cozy, cooling support and alignment for your spine. With the included cover it attaches easily to your desk chair and conforms to your spine keeping the proper curvature throughout your work day. With a removable, machine washable cover, this lumbar support cushion is great for office chairs, long days of driving, and hours of homework time spent staring at a screen.

Just in time for heading back into the classroom and the workplace, this year Purple has crafted the all-new Purple TwinCloud Pillow. Literally two pillows in one, the Purple TwinCloud Pillow is a classic down alternative pillow with a reversible cotton cover construction whereby you can switch from softer to firmer support in a matter of seconds! Simply flip the pillow over for a firm or soft side depending on your preference at the moment. Plus, as an added bonus you can fit your arms snuggly inside the pillow for the most comfortable side or stomach sleep position.

Getting the right composition notebooks, pencils, and binders for your kids’ back-to-school supply list is important, but making sure that you and your kids have a space to work at home might be even more important to having a successful year. That includes having a desk with plenty of storage space to contain all the books and clutter that goes along with getting work done. As such, the Tribesigns Two-Person Desk with Bookshelf is the perfect addition to your home office this year.

If there’s one thing we learned last year during virtual learning and attempting to work from home with kids in tow, it’s that having a dedicated space to do your work and office hours makes all the difference in the world. That means not working on the couch in front of the TV if you want to be productive; and if you have space, moving “homework time” to a room other than your child’s bedroom. Something about physically (and mentally) separating “work” from “rest” space helps the brain focus on the task of completing an assignment.

While we made-do last year with a fold-out table, the Tribesigns Two-Person Desk with Bookshelf makes going to work so much more organized this fall. Made from heavy-duty metal and wood (with a 550 lb load capacity), this 78-inch long desk allows two people to work side-by-side quite easily (although we’d be lying if we said that two elementary-aged kiddos work without fighting). Include a couple of pairs of headphones and you’re all set for a productive day.

With a large desktop surface, a storage shelf, and a lower bookshelf, there is ample storage space to hold books, your laptop, and all of your office accessories in an organized way. And, it’s so easy to assemble that your home office will be fully functional within a couple of hours. Just imagine how much you’ll be able to get done when the kids finally go back to school!
