6 Clever Ways To Solve (All Too) Common Workplace Woes
1. The problem: limited desk space meets giant monitor.
The solution: A monitor stand that earns its keep.
This sleek stand not only frees up the space beneath it, allowing you to stow your keyboard or other desk essentials, it also throws you about four USB bones. So, you can have your monitor and your desk space and your charging opportunities and your lunch if you’re organized enough to bring it with you.
Option #2: a minimal monitor riser whose base features the perfect parking spot for hard drives and the like, or any other office supplies you want at hand.
2. The problem: limited desk space meets devoted Apple-ite/tech user.
The solution: An ingenious cradle for your laptop.
3. The problem: the case of the missing headphones. The case of the broken headphones that accidentally got sat on, stepped on; other clumsy acts involving headphones. The case of the headphones perpetually being without a proper home and being left to loiter in the middle of the desk, obstructing your
writing clicking arm.
The solution: Finally–a place to hang up your headphones!
Like, a legitimate one. Not the arm of your lamp, or the side of your computer screen, or whatever other DIY docking situation you’ve been attempting all these years. This stand is more than just that, as well; its USB ports mean you can plug charge your headphones if they’re bluetooth. If they’re not, well, you surely have plenty of other things to charge.
Solution #2: Optical illusion, minimally invasive headphone stand, a rose by any other name. For under $15, this acrylic solution is a kind of no-brainer.
The solution: A completely functional and super stylish phone charging dock.
This guy comes in an array of metallic hues, and being that included in the menu of options is rose gold, now LS HQ needs it.
5. The problem: So many office cords, so little power outlet.
The solution: A better surge protector. The 360 Electrical Powercurve.
I raved about this thing years ago and am still standing by my man. It is hands down the best solution I’ve tried, thanks to its outlet’s 360° pivoting ability and USB ports. (Also comes in a mobile version, which are currently plugged into several outlets in my house.)
6. The problem: Ergonomics. Sitting. Chronic back pain. Falling asleep at the keyboard. Not be willing and able to commit to a permanently situated standing desk.
The solution: A height adjustable desk converter.
