Like so many of us, Mindy Kaling is trying her best to efficiently work from home during the coronavirus pandemic. However, also like so many of us, her actual desk is “covered in spiderwebs,” according to a recent Instagram post. When our beds and couches are within eyesight while we’re toiling away at our dedicated WFH space, how are we expected not to opt for premium comfort?

Kaling, at least, has set herself up with a “professional-looking” work-from-bed situation, and her lap desk of choice is actually one everyone can grab from Amazon.

By the looks of it, Kaling invested in the Large Size Laptop Tray Desk from Amazon. The legs of this lap desk are both foldable and adjustable so you can comfortably work from bed, or if you’re a floor-sitter, this desk is the perfect alternative to a clunky coffee table. And because it’s made with bamboo, the desk is super light and easy to take with you from couch, to bed, to carpet.

The 25.6” by 17.7” surface is large enough to fit your laptop, an external keyboard and mouse, and the most important accessory: your coffee cup.

And while working from home might be coming to an end (whether you want to go back to an office or not), you might as well do as Mindy Kaling does and take full advantage of your creature comforts while you still can. 

And hey — massive kudos to Kaling who changed out of her pajamas and into jeans to work from her perfectly-made bed. She’s tackling this whole work-from-bed movement like a pro and is an inspiration to the rest of us who just added this lap desk to cart.
