If you started working from home due to COVID-19, we realize you might have been a little haphazard about creating a home office. Your boss’s call to set up shop in your house was probably sudden, and you might have had to wedge a table in your kids’ play corner or claim one end of the kitchen table as your domain.

And you might still be working there, sitting amongst piles of dishes or LEGOs. But to work to your full potential, you know you need a better workspace. One that lets you stand when you want to or sit when you need to concentrate. Working from home affords you that luxury.

I wanted a standing desk but didn't have a lot of money to spend on one. I ended up going with the Autonomous SmartDesk 2, which was under $400 (went for the standard desk rather than the premium one) and I've really loved it. I couldn't imagine working from home for the past 4 months without a decent standing desk. You can also get an extra $25 off by buying it on their website with the discount code R-458240 at checkout.
