I bought a Jarvis adjustable height standing desk on amazon 3 years ago and I love it. Totally worth it!

I got a $40 thing from Amazon a few years ago. It sits on the desk and you can configure it to different heights. It really just fits a laptop and a mouse, but if you're only looking for a place to mix up your routine for an hour here or there, it's great. If you're looking for a place to work from for most of the time, I don't know if I'd recommend it.

I bought this years ago. For conference calls, I love it. But if I had to do some serious, extended work in excel or ppt, I don't think I'd last long. There are other versions that are more of a flat elevated surface where you could fit your laptop, a monitor, notepad, mug, etc. They are heavier and take up more room, so not what I was looking for. But it gets you closer to the full out standing desks, if price or space are concerns. https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00RQ3JQMM/ref=ppx_yo_mob_b_inactive_ship_o0_img?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Check out the Husky work table at Home Depot. People have been raving about them for being so cheap. I believe you can get them for $200-250

Bought Tresanti stand up desk from Costco for $200 over black friday. What a steal

Buy a converter- you place it on your regular desk and can adjust the height. I found one for $80 on amazon
