Refurb or after-lease Aeron. They last forever and are built for a staggering amount of abuse.

See if you have an office furniture reseller in your area. I got a clean, fully-functional Steelcase (iirc, not home atm) from Used Office Furniture in Carrollton, Texas, for $32.48 all in. Works a treat; I was looking for something more basic but you could definitely get something nice for <=$100.

I have an Office Depot Workpro 1000 chair and it’s been very durable and comfortable for slightly more than $100. It’s a poor man’s Aeron chair and I’m ok with that

Overworked mom of two young kids and I’ve come to the realization that I have very few friends who live nearby. I’m the only one of my close circle who didn’t head to suburbs after kids and WFH has made me aware of how reliant I was on work friends for a social outlet. I’ve still got great friends I can call for anything but, really missing having girlfriends I can just meet up without planning a month in advance. Strategies for making new friends in middle age and with very little spare time?

Let me know If anyone is interested or has questions about Secure On-Set Remote Video Streaming or the new On-Set Protocols that I experienced on the 3 commercials I’ve just finished in Los Angeles.
