Weekend Giveaway: Mobile Office Prize Pack

Look for an email from me shortly!

After FIVE years of running my own business, I’ve come to realize that I need to be able to work anywhere — not just at home in my office.

There are times when I work from a client’s home, from a coffee shop or other restaurant, in the car, outside on a blanket with Nora, and various other places around town.

Sometimes it can be stressful or seem a bit disorganized because I’m not always working from one place, but usually the pros outweigh the cons… so I try not to complain! However, because I often work from various locations, I try to keep a “mobile office bag” filled with my on-the-go essentials so I can quickly get out the door without worrying about leaving something behind.

Some of the items that stay in my “mobile office bag” are business cards, file folders, headphones, paper, pens, water bottle, batteries, and various chargers.  Then when I’m packing up to go somewhere, I add in my phone, computer, and a few snacks. It seems to work well for me to store everything together and have it ready and waiting when it’s time for me to head to a client’s home, to a speaking engagement, or to a blogger’s meet-up.

And since I know many of you also work from various remote locations, I’m super excited to parter with Turnstone to offer a fun Mobile Office Prize Pack for today’s weekend giveaway!

Oh, and even if you don’t necessarily work outside the home, I’m pretty sure you’ll still have a use for every item in this prize pack :)

The first item in the prize pack is probably my favorite because I take food with me everywhere I go — partially because I’m too cheap to spend money on fast food or eating out, and partially because I have a super high metabolism and am always hungry. I keep snacks in my car, in my purse, in the diaper bag, and in my mobile office bag. I never, ever go anywhere without food {just ask Dave if you don’t believe me.}

This BUILT Gourmet Lunch Tote is the perfect size for one or two people to pack a lunch or several snacks. It folds down when not in use, and the flexible material allows for odd-shaped containers. It keeps my food cold for several house and zips shut so I don’t have to worry about spills.

These Panasonic Headphones are perfect for anyone who enjoys listening to music… but especially if your working in a public place and want to be considerate of others around you who might have different taste in music.

I’ve used these headphones for listening to music while I work, and also to block out noise from others around me… yes, silence is a luxury for me these days!

The third item in my mobile office prize pack is a set of 3 Griffin MiniUSB Cables that will charge an iPhone, iPod, Blackberry, Android, camera, MP3 player, GPS, and more. Plus, these 4″ cables eliminate any possibility of tangled cords!

As I mentioned before, all three of these items would be super useful and practical for almost anyone… but if you’re constantly on-the-go or frequently work from remote locations, these items will definitely help to simplify and organize your mobile office space!

    My favorite place to work is at a local coffee shop. There is something about the atmosphere that allows me to be calm and focus. At home I feel stressed and have pressure to finish household chores so working away from the house is ideal. However, it can be noisy and I haven’t quite figured out the best set of headphones to help keep the noise at bay. This would be a perfect prize pack for sure!

    Love, love, love your site by the way and all the sweet pictures of Nora. Keep em coming!

    I used to love working from home, when my oldest was in daycare. My house was quiet, I could keep it clean, etc. But now that both my kids are home all day, I love going to Panera or Starbucks to get stuff done!

    My favorite place to work is my desk in the study, but I love a little “getaway” in my bedroom with the laptop. There is a comfy chair with lots of windows and sunlight.
