The crew here at Women On It are entrepreneurs and business executives of all kinds. We know what it’s like to juggle a career, meet the demands of family, and all that goes into being a person (male or female) in the working world. If there is one area that a lot of women overlook, particularly younger professionals, is the home environment they’re in. It doesn’t mean just those who work from home, because a good, comfortable home that is set up to meet your needs can make life a lot easier, whether you stay at home and work, or head to a job everyday. A few tips:

Comfort is everything

While it’s never wise to invest in expensive furniture until you’re sure where your permanent city or residence might be, comfort is key when it comes to your bed and sofa, regardless of whether its starter furniture or investment pieces. When purchasing a sofa or bed, sit, lay, get up, and sit back down again for at least ten minutes. Try laying on your side, back, sitting upright, and all the other ways you might use the item so that you can get a sense of what it might feel like when you own it long range. If it is too hard or too soft, try something else. It never hurts to take your time to select the right item for what you need. Don’t always default to Ikea or other inexpensive furniture stores for these items, plenty of mattress and furniture stores can have great deals. Buyer beware when purchasing online! You must be sure to buy from somewhere reputable to ensure quality, etc. If buying used, consider having the item professionally cleaned either before it’s brought into the house or shortly after. In some major cities, bed bugs can be an issue so be careful with stuffed items, checking seams and cracks for signs of bed bugs or other issues.

Ease and convenience is a must

A well organized home is always great, but so is one that’s set up to meet your needs. Take a little time to think about what items you will regularly reach for and arrange them within the home for convenience. For example, if you’re a coffee drinker something as simple as having the mugs and coffee near the pot will cut back on a step when you’re in a hurry. You might not notice these little elements, but you can be sure that they can add up to making your experience frazzled on the day-to-day. The same goes for how you organize your closet, pantry, makeup drawer, etc. Get into a habit of waking up and putting the bed together, straightening up for 10 minutes at night, or doing a quick run through after a work out to keep everything in order on a daily basis.

Invest in the details

It’s really the little things that makes a space cozy, comfortable, stylish or chic. What’s great about this aspect of your home is that these items are easy to purchase, relatively expensive and can often be found second hand with ease. A great throw blanket, plush pillows, a nice rug, great dish towels, fluffy towels for the bath, etc. are all elements that can make your home more accommodating for your needs. Don’t forget there are things like mattress foam pads, sheets, sofa covers and other means of making the home more of what you need without breaking the bank. Stores like Home Goods, Marshalls, TJ Maxx, and sale merchandise of favorite home retailers can be great sources for these little items that turn any space into a comfortable one that nurtures you while you’re home whether off hours or working.

    This is why I feel a Fantomas comeback is out of the question – Patton will lack the energy and ability to perform such music… or will he? On another note, the Tomahawk songs sounded great (don’t care for Stone Letter) despite Patton’s calmer stage presence. And they ended the show with Bad Brains covers? F**** awesome!

If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.

    we are on the same wavelength. I saw a post today, "Thank a Vet", and I thought, "Thank them? We should be apologizing to them as all of their sacrifices, included death, have now ultimately been for naught." Tyranny thanks them for the freedom they gave us to hang ourselves. I'm so sorry. Prepare yourself, and, no mercy to those who brought us here, no matter how much they repent. They must suffer long and painfully until the very end, so they too, may ultimately know the selfish act they've committed.

    The very root of your writing whilst appearing reasonable initially, did not really work perfectly with me after some time. Someplace within the paragraphs you managed to make me a believer unfortunately only for a very short while. I however have got a problem with your jumps in assumptions and one might do nicely to fill in all those breaks. In the event you can accomplish that, I would certainly be fascinated.
