Chips, Chat and Home Office Changes

home office organize change

Last weekend I figured out why some of my friends invite me to their homes more often than they used to. Yes, I bring over appetizers, desserts or whatever dish they want me to bring. It’s not that. I’m not a very good cook. They invite me over because they know I can’t stand to […]

Take Time To Purge Your Home Office

I’d love to invest in a storage facility. You know, the ones filled with storage units that people pay $120 a month to store $25 worth of stuff. I know it’s hard to get rid of things like old client files, equipment so out-of-date they don’t make ink cartridges for it anymore, and stationery that […]

Winter is already taking the country by storm like crazed shoppers at the mall the day after Christmas. But for those of us who work in front of a roaring fire, in a guest room, or in a commute-free home office, it doesn’t matter what’s going on outside. Working from home is business as usual.

The All Dressed Up  section is the most popular (and my favorite) part of this site. The reason I share these home office pictures isn’t to make anyone feel bad about his or her workspace. (I worked with a client who set up a home office in his bathroom, so I’ve seen it all.)

As a product junkie, I’m always searching for what’s new, what’s useful, and what makes me think I should have thought of that. Here are a few of my new favorite things. Play Time I’m more of a football fan than a basketball fan and after spending most Friday nights watching my son play football, […]

A Know-It-All Doesn’t Know Everything


Last weekend at a BBQ (and by BBQ I mean an outdoor party where everyone was sweating) there was a woman I hoped I would never see again. I tried to avoid eye contact with her and pretend I didn’t see her (don’t judge), but near the end of the party I looked to my […]

I met Michelle Newman at a writers’ conference and when she mentioned something about her home office, I asked if I could feature it on Working Naked. She gave me a strange look that was somewhere between What the Hell? and She doesn’t look like she runs a porn site. After I described the site […]
