Do you remember the “good old days” of just a few months ago, working from an office? Maybe you had a routine of dropping by your favorite coffee shop or cafe on your way to work, or maybe you had a great lunch spot, or a regular mid-afternoon appointment in the break room.
Now that you’re working from home, it’s taken some time to build a good routine like that. Maybe that coffee shop stop is now a trip to your kitchen, or the mid-afternoon break is spending time with the kids.
All these little changes in your routine that come from working from home may be costing you money. If nothing else, there is increased wear and tear happening in your home from the increased activity. Since the wear and tear used to happen outside of your home, the cost was not your responsibility.
Of course, some great advantages come from working from home – but it’s always a good idea to consider the costs involved, too.
