Stand at work... until FIRE
« on: April 30, 2014, 06:53:20 AM »
So, I walked into the printer room this morning and grabbed 3 of the empty paper boxes, flipped them upside-down and created a $0 desk where I can stand instead of sit.

Throwing down the gauntlet... I plan on doing this until I FIRE.

Any other takers?

(For those who have jobs that require standing all the time, you totally get mad credit for already doing this)

How far off are you from FIRE?

Doesn't matter I guess, it's a good idea.

I started standing at work a couple years ago, but I don't like standing all day either. Now I use something like this:

My employer paid for it. Now I can switch between sitting and standing.
