If you’re still working from home, which many people are, it might be high time to invest in a standing desk. However, you don’t actually have to spend standing desk money to help stimulate your body while you work. Instead, just get this Olmaster Laptop Stand.

As studies show, sitting for too long can cause long-term health issues. With thousands of people still at home and working, sitting down all day every day, it’s even more important that you stay active. It’s no secret that standing desks are expensive. However, there are cheaper devices that let you stand while you work, and this Olmaster Laptop Stand is one of them.

Not all laptop stands are made the same either. The Olmaster Laptop Stand has nine different adjustable levels, so you can angle your devices higher (up to 11 inches to be exact) or lower, depending on your work routine. Ensuring that you are eye-level with your computer, the laptop stand helps lessen fatigue and prevents you from hunching over your workload.

Another plus? It’s very durable and sturdy. Even if you tend to be a klutz with your computer, this laptop stand has a nonslip mat underneath the locked stand legs, so it won’t fall off your desk so easily. Its lightweight design comes in handy for travel, too. You can easily fold it away and pack it in your backpack when you have to take your work with you. Plus, it’s ventilated, so you don’t have to worry about your computer overheating.

Additionally, this laptop stand is also its own desk organizer. In the back of the stand, there are two extension pieces that you can unfold to be a holder for your phone. There’s even a small hole underneath so that you can feed your charging cable through. That should allow you to free up some of your desk space.

There’s no need to spend $100 to create a functional workspace. A budget-friendly laptop stand with an ergonomic design can help you be just as productive.
