More people are working from home than ever before. And while nobody misses waking up extra early to sit in traffic, it's a big shakeup to the normal routine. For starters, it makes collaboration a challenge, considering you can't just get up and walk over to a co-worker's desk.
On the other hand, you'll save a small fortune on gasoline. So that's a win.
Here are some essentials for making your home office feel like, well, an office.
