Raise your hand if you like to work on business projects in bed.

Raise your hand if you like to connect with family and friends on Facebook while watching TV.

Raise your hand if the only quiet time you get during the day is the few minutes spent in the bathroom.

If you raised your hand to any of the scenarios above, I suggest creating a Traveling Home Office.

Enjoy a lazy Sunday in bed with your laptop catching up on emails and connecting with friends on Facebook. Finish a last minute work project or create your ‘action plan’ for the next day while sitting on the couch being entertained by flashy outfits and the tan bodies of Dancing With The Stars. Escape to the bathroom with your Traveling Home Office to get some of your ‘best thinking’ done. Have all the supplies and information you need at your fingertips, whether you are laying in bed, sitting on the couch, or hiding out in the bathroom.

Here are some supplies needed to get you started with creating a Traveling Home Office:

  • 3 tiered cart on wheels.
  • Tackle box or craft box to hold office supplies such as pens, pencils, highlighter, stamps, post-its, scissors, tape, correction tape, paper clips, and stapler.
  • Poly Envelope to store a small supply of envelops, note pad, and any other paper supplies.
  • Magazine holders (2-3) to hold current catalogs, magazines, and articles to be read, current projects, and extra files.
  • Laptop and accessories.
  • Plastic or brown paper bag (lunch size) to hold garbage. Attach the bag to the cart using a binder clip.
  • Store a small stash of munchies and bottled water in the cart for those times when you are too lazy to walk to the kitchen.

Designate an area in the cart to keep the home phone and mobile phone so they don’t get lost in the cushions or under the sheets. Get creative and have fun creating your customized Traveling Home Office.

When the Traveling Home Office is not in use, roll it away into a closet!
