I feel so fortunate to have a job that allows me to work-from-home. That being said, I also have a very busy day - filled with emails and writing as well as my life with kids. Organization and having the right tools is key to make sure I am super productive. Here are a few of my favorite items that get me through the day.
1. Apple Computer: This one is a given and the beauty of using a laptop allows me to work-on-the-go as well as throughout different places. Whether it's on a trip or at my local coffeeshop, I literally bring my MacBook wherever I go.
2. Notebooks: While I use my computer for all of my work, I still jot notes and story ideas via a traditional notebook. My favorite right now is Rodale's Decomposition Printed Notebook and the Personalized V Stripe Notebook on Etsy from LetterLoveDesigns.
4. [Health Forward Journal] by Blue Dandelions: Being that I work-from-home/attend events, I use a sitter for my younger daughter. Being that anything can happen, I make sure everyone is safe by jotting down the five Ws (and one H) of WHO, WHAT, WHERE, WHEN, WHY and HOW for everything related to their health (as well as mine). This includes a complete journal where you can fill out information pertaining to medical/dental/vision appointments and examinations; screenings; outpatient procedures; surgeries; radiology; etc. While I use my phone, I also like the paper format that forms a connection between recording all of life's very important healthy issues.
5. Epson Expression Premium XP-810 Small-in-One: There are some instances when I have to print and to do so I have been using the Epson Expression Premium XP-810 Small-in-One. This innovative two-sided printer allows me to print traditional paper products and pictures. I love how vivid and crisp the copies are as it delivers pictures and documents that are true-to-life. On top of that it is also compatible with Epson Connect, Epsons free suite of mobile printing solutions making it ideal for busy families and students on the go. Through this I can print from my phone or MP3 Player and my family and I can connect our multiple computers to this one printer. Another bonus is that the printer is super sleek and features an easy-to-use touchscreen that is perfect for the modern family.
