Costs savings and working from home

Posted in Establish your virtual home office, Everything Else on 10.09.14

Working from home has many perks. The one perk that is always top of the list is saving money by no longer participating in the commuting process. No longer do you have to get up and plan 1 hour ahead to get to work on time.

We are seeing costs continually rising- Food, utilities, fuel and technology costs are all rising.

How can you save money working from home?

  1. Clothes, fuel, wear and tear on the family vehicle.
  2. Technology- since you no longer have the IT department to handle your computer issues, learn to take care of your equipment. Schedule frequent cleanings of your computer (ie disk cleanup, defragment of your system). Stay on top of virus protection.
  3. Utilities- when you are working in your home office, turn off the lights in other parts of the house. Unplug equipment that you are not using. Plugged in equipment pulls an electrical charge even if you are not using since they are plugged in. Turn off your computer at night if not using.

Take advantage of the perks of working from home as well as the cost savings associated with working from your home office.
