If you’re one of the countless thousands of people who have been working from home due to this pandemic, chances are pretty good that you’re relatively new to this kind of scenario. Whether you love it or hate it, there are plenty of things to consider to determine if working at home is the right fit for you. Like what?
Ultimately, it all boils down to what you’re spending to work from home. It’s certainly true that working from home saves you money and time that would typically be spent commuting to and from an office. However, increased activity in your home also means increased wear and tear on the utilities, systems, finishes, and overall lifespan of your home. There may also be a greater cost of time due to preparing your own meals and caring for maintenance and repair issues. While it may be that these things wind up being non-issues for you, it’s important to give them a quick thought.
