Gadgets that Work: EyeBods Eyeglass Holder

EyeBods eyeglass stand

I like to say that I lost my sight giving birth. The day after his birth, my arms became too short to see clearly what was on the screen. The previous day, I was able to type holding my iPhone 8 inches from my eyes — I had pictures to prove it!. Frankly, I can’t really complaint since my presbyopia occurred at 47 years old.

Infuse Your Home Office with Style for my Organizing Monday

infuse your style in your home office

We passed a lot on time in front of our computer.  Many of us do it at home. Today I wish to talk about the need to surround your home office with things you love.

space saving options for home office :: pottery barn furniture

Even if your desk is on a hall or a corner of a room, it can look pretty. City dwellers often look for a desk that provides space saving. The top picture is the Graham Secretary Deck with the tall hutch used here as a bookcase. A desk with a fold-down front is perfect to hide away the paper. The three bottom drawers and two cabinets provide multi-purpose storage. If you do not need it as a desk later, it is good to know that the Graham desk with the hutch makes a practical bar station.

A desk hutch is a great way to save space and neatly display your office supplies and mobile gadgets. The Porter Smart Technology hutch adapts to your need. First, the hutch comes with a hanging dowel for organizing ribbons and other crafts. Behind the top drawer, you can access a five-outlet power strip. Or you could replace the hanging towel and the top drawer with three vertical partitions for added filing space. The idea is to customize your desk to your needs.
