How can your Home Office Benefit from Easy to Grow Houseplants?

A home office is first and foremost somewhere that has to be designed to provide the best working environment for you. This environment has to be one that will make you most productive which means you have to feel comfortable and happy in the area. Plants are a great way of achieving this vibe.

House plants have been proven to improve a person’s state of mind and to make them feel more relaxed and happy. It follows that they make a home office a far more pleasant place to work in. It makes sense to invest in a few plants if this is the case, so what do you need to think about before you buy?

The practicalities of having a house plant in a home office

If the office is your domain, and no-one else who lives in the house goes in there, any plants that you get are your responsibility. You have to make sure that they are a reasonability you are willing to take on. This is more likely to be the case if the plants you choose are easy to care for. Of course you also need to think about the size of a plant, and that’s not just the size when you buy it but the size that it’s likely to grow to. Home offices are very rarely huge spaces that could easily house a very large plant.

What plants should you choose?

If you’re decorating your home office that’s a very good time to decide what type of plant you want. Is the plant you choose going to be a feature of the office? If this is the case then you may want to consider a peace lily. They are attractive and elegant plants and their ornate white blooms should serve to create a calm atmosphere conducive to a good working environment. Peace lilies are also very easy to maintain as long as you remember to keep their soil evenly moist.

They exist quite happily in normal room temperature and without an excessive amount of light. From a practical point of view they are very good at cleansing the air in a room, you can click here for plant hire.

If you want a few plants to place around the room to provide a splash of color then why not opt for various colored African violets. They are available in a variety of shades including pink, blue and variegated. These compact plants will provide a good amount of blooms and they don’t require excessive heat or light.

If you do choose to have African violets in your home office the one thing you need to remember is that you should never water them from the top; water causes damage when it comes into contact with the leaves of an African violet. You should always place the plant in a saucer of water and leave it there for no longer than half an hour.

Whatever plant you choose for your home office you are going to benefit from its beauty and its ability to induce a good mood.

Schwan's Home Service Review and GIVEAWAY!

Have you ever tried Schwan’s Home Service? Did you know that they offer much more than just ice cream? I was recently contacted by one of the company’s reps, Jennifer, and offered a trial of their products. I jumped at the chance. I’ve had their ice cream many times, but hadn’t had a lot of experience with their meals. As a busy parent (can you relate?!?!), I’m all for options that make meal time easier and less stressful!

Jennifer sent me two types of stuffed chicken breasts, a hearty baked ziti meal, corn, fruit and ice cream. All the items she sent were more than enough to make three complete meals for my family of five. The order total (with $10 off for being a new customer) was just over $46. If the five of us go out to dinner, we usually spend $40. I thought the pricing was very reasonable, considering the amount and quality of the food. Schwan’s has more than 350 items to choose from, so there is a lot of variety to add to your weekly meal planning.

All of the food was delicious, and we enjoyed everything we tried. The Italian Stuffed Chicken Breasts were probably the family favorite. The frozen corn is great too; I highly recommend it. The bag is large and can last several meal times. It’s very fresh and easy to just warm in the microwave. All of the meals I prepared were easy. I thawed the chicken and tossed it in the oven, while I went about helping with homework, getting ready for evening activities, etc. The pasta went right into the oven frozen and came out great.

Schwan’s will deliver right to your home, for a low $1.75 delivery fee. It is very convenient. They have easy, online ordering and an app option too. They have convenient freezer bags as an option too, if you aren’t home or available during normal delivery times. No memberships or minimum orders are required; simply order products on an as needed basis. If you do order online, you can earn 5 percent reward points.

There literally is something for everyone. The business has been around since 1952 and really caters to the busy, health-conscious parent. They feature USDA Choice grass fed beef, free range, hormone free chicken and fruits and vegetables that are flash frozen at the peak of freshness. There are no GMOs or pesticides.

Everything I’ve tried is great and I’m definitely planning to order more! If you’d like to give it a try, Jennifer has graciously offered coupon codes for new customers.  Use JENE2 to save $5 off $25 or $10 off $50, or use JENE15 to save $15 off $75. You can also enter to win a $25 gift certificate simply by liking Jennifer’s Facebook Page, and then commenting here that you did so! Earn an extra entry if you mention what you'd try first from her site! {Contest ends Oct. 10, 2014} Good luck!

WF-3640 All-in-One Printer Great for your Home Office

I was recently asked to review an Epson WorkForce WF-3640, all-in-one printer. The gracious folks at Epson sent me a unit for review. The printer really does everything I want it to; print, copy, scan and fax. It connects to Wi-Fi and is very easy to set up and use.

One of the key features that I was looking for was the ability to easily print from my iPad and iPhone. The WF-3640 does that easily, as well as from my laptop and desktop. The Epson Connect feature basically allows you to print and share from anywhere, which is a definite plus. Here are some other great key features:

Printing

The unit has print speeds of 19 ISO ppm for black and 10 ISO ppm for color. It also automatically prints two-sided to save up to 50 percent of your paper! It also allows you to collate and remove punched holes or shadows.

Capacity

The paper tray holds up to 500 sheets of paper, meaning you have to load it less frequently. And, there is a second rear tray for cardstock, envelopes and labels.

Touch screen

The WF-3640 features a 3.5” color LCD touch screen with gesture navigation, making all of the features on the unit easy to use.

Technology

The unit features PrecisionCore Inkjet technology which is  a new printing technology using a revolutionary high-density print chip which can generate up to 40 million precise dots per second with astonishing accuracy, producing professional quality output at dramatic speeds.

Epson is also environmentally friendly, which I think is really great! According to the Epson website, the WF-3640 is equipped with these ECO features:

  • Uses up to 70% less power than laser printers
  • Save up to 50% on paper with automatic, two-sided printing / copying
  • ENERGY STAR® qualified
  • RoHS compliant
  • Recyclable product
  • Epson America, Inc. is a SmartWaySM Transport Partner

If you are in the market for a new printer, scanner, copier or fax machine for your home office, the WF-3640 is a great option. It’s compact and because of the Wi-Fi connection, you can place it anywhere throughout your home or office. The printing quality is great and it’s easy to set up with your established technology.

The WF-3640 is available online for $149.99 after an instant $50 rebate and qualifies for free ground shipping. The all-in-one printer includes four DURABrite ultra ink cartridges, an instruction manual, CD-ROM for setup and power cord. A USB cable is not included in the packaging, so if you aren’t using the Wi-Fi option you will need one of those.

In addition to the website, you can also find Epson via social media at Facebook.com and on Twitter!

Do you have an all-in-one device in your office? What are the biggest benefits? How does it make your work-life easier? We’d love to hear your thoughts!

*I was supplied with a WF-3640 free of charge in order to write this product review. However, all opinions are my own.
