My Work-from-home Setup in 2024 🪑
Learnings from ~3 years of WFH, plus the most popular items in the community.
Before we jump into today’s piece, a small reminder that regular Thursday emails (like this one) are moving to Wednesdays to make more room for the new podcast episodes 🎙️, which will go out every Friday. So the new schedule looks like this:
Now, back to the article! At the end of 2022 I wrote a newsletter edition about my work-from-home setup.
It was around Christmas time, so I thought it could help with gifts. Surprisingly, it became one of the most popular posts of the year, and I spent the following week replying to readers who asked for clarifications about various items.
Fast forward one year, I have been working on a bigger and better edition of it, thanks to the help of the community. The thread on this got a ton of responses 👇 and—not gonna lie—it made me impulse-buy a lot of new stuff.
So, today I will recommend and review 20+ items (up from 10 last time). These include both the ones I have been using myself (old and new), and the most popular ones from the community.
I will also organize things into categories:
🪑 Desk & Health — the standing desk routine and everything around it.
🎙️ Video / Audio — the setup for recording audio, video, or simply having calls.
🖥️ Tech — display, docks, chargers, and more.
➡️ Next up — new, promising items I am considering buying.
💬 From the community — recommended pieces from Refactoring readers. From simple ones, like monitor lights, to wild ones, like the XReal glasses.
Also, I am not affiliated with any of these products and I don’t make money from doing this. It’s just genuine recommendations from myself and the community.
Let’s dive in! 👇
