Splurge on the tools to make it comfortable! You'll be spending a lot of time in your home office, so you should make it a place you look forward to being in.

I've invested in a CODE Keyboard, a nice monitor (surprisingly, from a thrift store!), a comfortable Logitech mouse, and pretty sweet JVC HA-NC250 noise-cancelling headphones. I've also been blessed with a solid wood desk from a friend, and a wonderful high-back chair I was given for my birthday a couple of years ago.
