Thanks for taking a moment to browse my personal website! Normally during the day I’m developing something for the web for my job, so I like to make sure my workspace at home is inspiring, organized, and comfortable for those long days coding. Here’s a featured list of ten items I have for my workspace!
- FLEXISPOT EC1 Essential Electric Standing Desk
This desk is a great budget option if you’re looking to get into the standing desk trend, I recently switched to this one and I like the simplicity of it as well as its sturdiness. The desktop is one solid piece and the legs are sturdy metal.
- Late 2019 Apple MacBook Pro (16 inch, 16GB RAM, 512GB) Space Gray
This is the computer I use for my day-to-day work. Mac creates secure laptops which are both secure and well designed to fit neatly in your workspace. You can also get a deal on this one by purchasing it refurbished!
- LG 27UL500-W 27-Inch UHD (3840 x 2160) IPS Monitor
A good monitor is essential for web development, we use 4k monitors at work to preview any web designs at a retina scale in order to make sure our images are not blurry for certain viewers. This one is low budget compared to other models but don’t let the price fool you this is still a sharp monitor with great capabilities.
- Logitech MX Keys Advanced Wireless Illuminated Keyboard
Web development is a very type-heavy job, in order to maintain sanity while coding you want to make sure your typing experience is comfortable. This keyboard by Logitech is a great option since it offers modern USB-c recharging as well as being able to connect and swap easily between three separate devices at the push of a button. The keys also illuminate which is great for cave dwellers like myself, and concave keycaps gently cup your fingertips. Could not recommend more.
- Logitech MX Anywhere 3 Compact Performance Mouse
Another great computer accessory is a good mouse, this mouse comes from the same line from Logitech as the keyboard mentioned in #4. The scroll wheel has two modes, one superfast scrolling mode with no resistance as well as one that offers a “clicky” resistance while scrolling normally. There’s also programmable buttons which you can assign shortcuts to. It also offers the same ability as the keyboard to quickly swap between three saved devices. This mouse and keyboard combo is the creme de la creme.
- Hiearcool Adapter USB C Dongle for MacBook Pro, 7 in 1 USB C to HDMI Multport Adapter
No MacBook is complete without some sort of USB hub these days. This 7 in 1 hub should do the trick offering two USB-3 ports, a charging passthrough, SD/TF Card slots and an HDMI port to connect to an external monitor. The perfect docking station!
- Fengtaiyuan T07, Silver Metal Wire Mesh Pencil Holder, Desktop Organizer
Finding pencils, pens, and other office supplies scattered on your desk? Pick up one of these simple pencil cup organizers to neaten up a little!
- WD My Passport for Mac Portable External Hard Drive
Backups are lifesavers, so why not backup your computer’s files? This external hard drive makes it easy to backup your computer with Time Machine. Just plug it in, assign to time machine and watch as your computers files are backed up into this tiny drive for safe keeping. 1TB drives are not badly priced nowadays, this one comes in around $125.
- Owala FreeSip Insulated Stainless Steel Water Bottle with Straw for Sports and Travel, BPA-Free, 24-Ounce, Neon Basil
Have you drank any water while reading this post? No? GO HYDRATE?! I chose this water bottle from Owala because it comes in two popular materials, Tritan or Stainless Steel, and in many bright and inspiring colors. It also features a straw as well as a normal drinking spout depending on your drinking preference.
- Apex Legends Bundle – Includes Official 6-Inch Green Nessie Plush and 6-Inch Purple Nessie Plush
Last on my list of workspace gear is any sort of knick knack that makes you happy! I have a couple figurines from various games scattered across my desk. The ones seen here are from the game Apex Legends which I play over here on YouTube. I keep toys like this on my desk to help keep me inspired during my work day or after-hours. Thanks for reading and I hope I inspired you to make some changes to your workspace for the better!
