I love working from home, but it takes a little delicacy to make your home office (or living room corner) feel perfectly assembled and comfortable. Fortunately, some of our favorite home office supplies are on sale right now. Be sure to read our full guide to work from home for more recommendations.
Special offer for Gear readers: Get to 1 year subscription to WIRING for $ 5 ($ 25 off). This includes unlimited access to WIRING.com and our print magazine (if you will). Subscriptions help fund the work we do every day.
Support offers for monitors and laptops
Moft’s Desk Mat is one of our favorite laptop stands. It comes in three versions, all discounted right now. The magnetized rug is 20 inches long and can be supported to keep your laptop or tablet at an angle, and includes a large, comfortable cushion. Two NFC points (not to be confused with NFT) can be customized on your phone to open a specific application when it is also scanned. This digital kit includes a magnetic wireless charger to support your phone, a tablet stand, and cable organizers. The paper kit has a $ 115 discount ($ 13 discount) and includes book and memoir holders. You can get all the extras for $ 168 ($ 19 off).
This monitor has frequent discounts and you can also get it for this price from Samsung. It has a webcam that can be saved for privacy with a soft push, but requires a well-lit room to provide good image quality. You can also rotate it vertically or mount it with VESA. Review editor Julian Chokkattu said the IPS screen looks good, but he would like it to have a higher resolution.
Depending on the size of your desktop or the height of your monitor, an arm stand may work better than a stand. This VESA mount supports monitors up to 27 inches and supports up to 14 pounds. We saw it go down to $ 29 in January, but it has stayed at $ 40 ever since. It sticks to your desktop and has built-in cable management to keep all your cables out of sight.
I love having a desk when I want to work (or watch a movie) from the couch or bed. The Yogibo makes comfortable pouf bag chairs, so the bottom of the fluffy pillow is just as nice and keeps the tray leaning as you type. It also has a slot for holding a tablet or phone. If you don’t want to buy at QVC, you’ll pay a little more from Amazon. You currently have a $ 53 discount ($ 6 off) when you click the coupon button on the page.
This is our favorite wireless gaming mouse. The price fluctuates and has occasionally reached $ 130, although it is often around $ 90, so this is not the best deal. Still, it’s a responsive mouse designed for sports, with click buttons and a long-range reception. WIRED reviewer Jaina Gray says that while she always liked SteelSeries products, it wasn’t until she tried this mouse that she fell deeply in love. You do not need to be a player to use a gaming mouse.
The Logitech G Pro cable mouse also fluctuates in price, often jumping to $ 60. The offer may be small, but that shouldn’t deter you – this is a real proven workhorse. It’s thin enough to be as discreet as a working mouse, not just for gamers. You can also find it at a discount at the same price as Best Buy.
The HyperX Pulsefire Surge mouse often goes up to $ 55, but often goes down to $ 35. If you click on the coupon button on the page, you can get an additional $ 5 discount, which will take you to one of the lowest prices we’ve followed. It’s hard to beat at that price. Get customizable RBG lighting and fast response times.
If you don’t need a portable storage solution, this is the best hard drive for backups. WIRED reviewer Scott Gilbertson has been using several WD Elements Desktop hard drives for over a decade and says they are the most reliable and cheapest he has ever tested. But they are large and require external energy. This sale is for the 8 terabyte version, but includes 4 to 18 options.
The X6 is our best selection of portable solid state drives. You can also find the same sale price at B&H. It’s at the lower end of the price range for portable SSDs, but it’s fast and extremely light, about 1.5 ounces. However, it is made of plastic, so treat it gently.

Be sure to click on the coupon on the page for a $ 30 discount. If you only print shipping labels, you do not need to pay for ink, stick a large printer, or pay for printing at the store. This one is small and works well, and 500 sheets of stickers will cost you about $ 15. You will need to download the appropriate driver to your computer and it will not work over Wi-Fi. Also, be sure to trim unnecessary items on the label so that it prints correctly.
We now exercise in our offices. If you have a stand-alone desk or convertible laptop stand, you can do your own steps while editing spreadsheets. It folds when you finish, and there are wheels on the front if you want to move it from your office to the living room to walk around while watching TV. I used a similar model for a while, and it was very nice to have it, even though it doesn’t bend like a standard treadmill.
