Starting a new job and figuring out WFH desk set up. They gave me a laptop and $500 stipend for office furniture. I have a desk, chair, and iMac for myself. Trying to decide if I should get a second monitor on an arm for work, or if I should buy a new laptop for myself and a monitor I can plug each computer into at the start/end of work. I def want a big screen for personal use but it's tough to fit it all on one desk. What did you all do?

FWIW when presenting I really like having two screens, I keep zoom on the laptop screen so I can see faces and the chat, and share my big monitor screen with all the work on it, I wanna be able to have those side by side. I don't mind tucking the laptop away at the end of the day, my iMac is currently on a riser that I just stick it under.

$500 stipend?! Are they hiring?

Soon I will be working on designing a shared home office for my husband and me. Any ideas for the best kind of set up for this? For context, I work from home and he does not, but he is also an attorney who needs a desk and space to be able to work from home when needed. Thoughts on two separate desks facing each other, on separate walls, along a single wall? The only thing that I think would be a little weird is if we were back to back, in case of my video calls for work

However...I assume that if I ever get a complaint to the ethics body in my state that I'd be fired from my full time job. More in comments.
