Why a Coffee Shop Office is Great! (+ giveaway)

{Blogiversary Giveaway #5 – the last one}

Being a WAHM can be a tricky balancing act sometimes, especially when it come to fitting in all the work your have to do, whether it’s your mom tasks or your work to-do list. Some days it’s perfect to work at home on your dining table. Other days you just need to get out and that’s when a Coffee Shop Office is great!

5 Benefits of a coffee shop office

Why a Coffee Shop Office is Great

On the days when I really need to focus, I head over to Starbucks for a  mobile coffee shop office and here are some reasons why:

1. Distractions like laundry, dishes and dinner are out of sight so you can just focus on your work.

2. There is free wifi and outlets so you can stay connected and charged.

3. You have coffee, tea and potentially lunch at your fingertips.

4. Since you’re already at a coffee shop, you can get a friend to meet you for a coffee break or even have a meeting. They happen at coffee shops all the time!

5. Starbucks gives you free refills while you are in the store! Here are the details of their refill policy. 

I try and work at my mobile office 1-2 times a week so I thought it would be perfect to have a Starbucks giveaway on the final day of my 5 Days of giveaway to celebrate my 5-year blogiversary.

  1. I want to move from a condo to a house, but everything is so expensive in the Metro Vancouver area…what’s the best way to get into this market???

  2. We currently own a 5 bedroom house but two of the bedrooms are quite small. We have considered knocking down a wall to incorporate one of the smaller rooms into the master bedroom. For resale value, would it be better to keep the five bedrooms or would four bedrooms, including a huge master, be just as valuable?

  3. My hubby and I have talked often about getting into the housing market, and I feel that places such as rentals near skytrains, public transit, university/colleges are a great idea but I’m also wondering what other areas are good for investment besides water-front areas as well. Where else are the hidden gems? Thanks for reading.

  4. What would you say to a first time home owner? When would the best time be to get into the market for a new home?

  5. Do you recommend employing a real estate agent if you are looking to buy a house or just proceed on your own.

  6. What room in my house so I invest renovation money so that I can get top dollar – kitchen, bathroom, finish the basement???

  7. My condo is very small-only 510 square feet. The bathroom and kitchen are very outdated. Do you think renovating either or both would add value for resale?

  8. Is there a way to know the true value of a house, is there also a way to know of past incidents at houses, do they have to be disclosed

  9. We have a study nook but are considering making the two bedrooms on either side bigger would losing a good sized nook reduce home value or increase because of larger bedrooms?

  10. We are hoping to buy a home in the next few weeks .. some people are saying sellers are taking advantage of buyers and some are saying its a buyers market .. what is your opinion? #AskAdil

  11. Oh my! These contests are so amazing!
    Hmmm I would ask what are some things people can do to increase the value of their house before selling.

  12. What’s the best way to handle the time between selling your existing home and buying your new home? Both in terms of logistics (trying not be homeless for an indefinite period of time) and in terms of dealing with the mortgage and other financials.

  13. Adil – this is probably the million dollar question. Do we sell our condo near Gastown or hold on to it long term. What are some of the pluses and minuses? To get more space we’ve opted to rent outside of downtown instead of selling so far.

  14. What advice do you have for those who wish to buy a bigger house in a city where real estate is crazy expensive (ie. Vancouver)?

  15. What questions should I ask a potential realtor to ensure that I’m getting the best fit (I have had some not so good ones in the past).

  16. There’s a Starbucks on the corner. It would be a short commute to my Starbuck’s office if I had one. It would be even faster if I took the short cut through the back gate.

  17. Is it actually better to own a home versus stay in an apartment or condo? With housing prices now, starter homes do not really make sense unless you intend to stay somewhere for at least ten years.

  18. What is the minimum down payment that I need to save to be able to afford any house. We have always rented and really would like to own our own home

  19. Are there any government programs or other resources to help those with low income achieve the goal of purchasing their own home?

  20. What advice would you give to someone who lives in an extremely expensive market, yet would love a house with land? Will the market ever settle back down, or should we just cut our ties to this area and move somewhere cheaper?

  21. My house is going to be a fixer upper- should I fix some things before listing, and list it at a lower price?

  22. We are planning on moving. My husband does contracting on the side and is unhappy with any home that we find as he states that “he would want to re-do this or re-do that”. We have spoken about possibly building.
    Would it be better to build (which means we would have to buy land) or would it be better to purchase existing and re-do the home.
