1. Telecommute by remotely controlling your office computer
You can work from home, but use the computer in your office, through remote control software such as LogMeIn (free version available) or TightVNC (free). You can view the remote computer full screen, launch and close programs, read email, copy and paste text between PCs, and access any files you left behind. Save money on gas, claim home equipment on your taxes and convince your boss that you'll be more productive without leaving your house. Even the iPhone has some VNC clients, such as Mocha VNC and Teleport.
