Work from Home Office Essentials (opens in new tab)

If you've been trying to work at home with a shoddy internet connection, it's time to make a change. Lowe's is home to way more than tools; you can find plenty of home office essentials there too from routers and cable ties to desks and more.

The model of router you own can significantly improve your internet connection at home. Your current router could be fine to use casually, but for business purposes, ensuring your internet connection remains fast and reliable at all times is crucial. You might not even be making proper use of the current upload/download speeds that you pay monthly for if your router isn't able to properly send an internet signal to your computer or mobile phone wherever you are in your home. Mesh networking systems like the Google Nest WiFi (opens in new tab) ensure you'll receive a fast, solid wireless connection in any room of your home, and now that it's more than 25% off, it's seriously worth considering. Currently the two-piece set is down to $199, saving you $70, through August 30.

Your internet connection is easily one of the most important pieces of the puzzle when trying to set up your home office, but another concern has to be organization. Keeping your desk and workspace tidy and free of any potential eyesores can help to keep you on task and focused. Past the decor in your office, one product that some forget to include is a set of cable ties (opens in new tab). Lowe's has plenty to choose from to help keep your cables untangled and out of sight. Plus, you'll probably find quite a few uses for them around your home even outside of your office.
