Logitech H390, used it at my previous org and had to return it, bought myself the same set and it works like a charm.

Been using it for 3 years (split btwn the 2 set )

I got myself a Samsung 49 inch monitor and itโ€™s fucking awesome!!!

Split screen into 4ย 

left side, calendar
left center, email
right center, demo pageย 
right side, slack

Iโ€™m obviously set with different shortcuts to improve work efficiency when I donโ€™t need slack or need a larger screen for a demo.ย 

10/10 recommend. Comes in at $800 at Best Buy. Curved, too.

Also the logitech vertical mouse Is pretty badass.

A top tier standing desk really helped me with my back pain. It is crazy how much my mood improves without nagging pain in my lower back from sitting down most of the day

Easily my adjustable dumb bells. I was going crazy without the gym in quarantine. Lifting helps to take the edge off and keep me focused.ย

I bought a new house in a neighborhood that's pleasant and provided my kids with more options. This has led to a more peaceful working environment.

Got a Echelon bike. Perfect for blowing off steam or getting a quick workout in during lunch. Keeps the energy up throughout the day and doesn't take up a ton of space in the home office!

OP is completely right about the Moccasmaster - if you grind your own coffee beans and like machines with a single on/off button - you've found your machine...ย 

For work, mine would have to be a JBL Blue Tooth speaker that's good for calls w/ MS Teams calls, streaming youtube, precorded calls or music/podcasts.ย

Moving out and getting somewhere more spacious with a better outside area. Very gloomy being in a small flat sometimes.ย
