As you start on your work from home setup, you might find yourself needing a keyboard to do all the tasks assigned to you. You may opt for a full-sized one or a compact one, a wired one, or a wireless one.

Another essential to working from home is a mouse. Maybe some users have a laptop but are unused to using the touchpad and opt for using a mouse instead. Others might want to have a wireless, Bluetooth mouse instead of a wired one.

Keyboard + mouse combo

If you find yourself in need of both a keyboard and mouse, why not get a bundle? Keyboard and mouse combos are easier on the pocket than having to buy each item separately. Additionally, since they’re a combo, you can be sure that both the keyboard and mouse are of the same quality. You can get a combo in either wireless or wired, whichever you prefer.

Headsets are essential for those working at home as you’ll be meeting most of your clients via Slack, Skype, Microsft Teams, Google Hangouts, and the like. Having a headset with a microphone will allow you to hear your clients clearly, and speak to them too without any issues. Additionally, you can use the headset to tune into your favorite music and playlists to keep yourself undistracted by outside noise.

Prepaid router

What’s a work-from-home setup without WiFi? Most freelance employees need to stay connected with their clients in case there are requests, updates, revisions, and the like. Some work setups also require individuals to online for the duration of their work hours and keep track of their current task. A postpaid broadband plan may be out of pocket for some individuals, but thankfully, there are prepaid options as well.

Laptop stand

Those who already have a desktop PC don’t exactly have any problems with desks; however, those who have laptops instead may be in need of a stand. Laptops need airflow as well to dissipate the heat that they’ll generate while being used. Laptop stands are also a good thing for users as it’ll help them use their machine in a more ergonomic manner, reducing eye strain, headaches, and backaches.
