The Laptop That Will Make Your Home & Work Life Easier

Mom, how are you doing with distance learning this year? If you’re reading this then it’s probably been an adjustment for you like it has been for me. Trying to juggle working from home, while also helping my kids with their daily school work has been HARD. There is no other way to put it. Having the kids home with me during the day has completely changed my work from home experience.

One thing I found that has helped is having a designated workspace with a designated computer for learning. It has made things so much easier. We have been using the Microsoft Surface Laptop Go for our schoolwork. The kids know that it’s their go-to for all their learning. I’ve bookmarked all their links so they can navigate the school day by themselves. The touch screen has been a really great addition to our schooling. Since my girls are doing most of their work online, they write very little on paper these days, so having the ability to draw with their fingertips has been so convenient.

It has taken a bit to get here and has definitely been an adjustment. We did so much trial and error before figuring out what works for us, but here we are, 8 months into it and we’re conquering it here at home. I’m confident you will get there too!

The Microsoft Surface Laptop Go is sleek, thin and light so it’s portability makes it easy to transition our workspace from room to room if needed. I frequently take it over in the evenings when I need to write for the blog. With more than enough space, I can take thousands of files with me wherever I go, even when I need to run to the coffee shop to get some quiet writing time. The cost? Starting at just $549.99 it’s such a great value!

So do you need some help calming the chaos at home? You might want to get yourself a Microsoft Surface Laptop Go and give yourself a much needed break from the chaos of distance learning and working from home.
