There are thousands (perhaps millions) of people who have jumped on the band-wagon and have started working at home. And why not, can you blame us? Especially with the economy and unemployment the way it is. It’s seems more and more necessary for the ‘average’ person to start a second job, or just find a primary job working at home.
The advantages of working at home are monumental. First of all, there is no cost to commute. No gas, no tolls, no bus fare, no train fare, nothing. With gas prices skyrocketing out of control that, in and of itself, can save hundres even thousands of dollars over the course of a year!
Additionally, there is no cost for new clothes. You can work in your pj’s, work in your jeans, work in your bathingsuit if you choose. Suits and ties, dresses and panty-hose are SO over-rated. And there’s no cost for drycleaning either. Throw on a t-shirt and a comfy pair of jean and you won’t be annoyed with your pany-hose or your tie for even a second.
(I had a boss ask me one time if I perhaps wouldn’t be a bit more “productive” if I wore a dress. I rebutted asking him if he would rather I spend my time adjusting my panty-hose or listing his product on e-bay…..there was no further discussion!!)
Working at home has the added advantage of no money spent on lunches or coffees or snacks. All the food and drink you could ever need (notice I didn’t say want) is right at your fingertips. Already bought and paid for. Additionally if you aren’t spending your money at a fast food restaurant every day, you are probably not packing on the pound either. So that’s really a win-win!
In addition, for those with children still at home, you can save on baby-sitting. Or not “bother” the in-laws, grandparents, or neighbors to watch your kids. With a little bit of scheduling and practise working at home with kids can be a real advantage for everyone.
So there you have it, just 4 good reasons why you should work at home. And there are plenty others too…I just brushed the surface.
Please let us know what you think the advantages of working at home are! We’d love you get some feedback!
