We have a three bedroom house that fits us perfectly, or did anyway. In the upstairs there is a master bedroom which my wife and I share, and two smaller bedrooms. One is my son's room and was his nursery when he was smaller, and the other is currently being used as my office.

We had a second child-- a little girl --in October. As she is still very small, she sleeps in a bassinet in our bedroom, but those days are numbered. She will need her own room within a couple months, for naps and for her to sleep all night on her own. That means my office will soon have a crib, dresser, and changing table in it, and I will be unable to use my computer after the wife and kids are in bed.

For this eventuality, I've been preparing what I call my, "table kit." Costco sells these really nice collapsible plastic crates. I have filled one with computer things, with the intention being that when my office is not available to me, I have a crate with everything I need in it, and can quickly set up at the dinner table. When I'm done, I can quickly tear down and pack everything up into that collapsible crate, so none of my equipment will "live" at the table.

My question is: what would you put in your table kit? I currently have a System76 Oryx Pro, a 23" LED display, displayport cable, power cables, mouse, keyboard, microUSB, and type-C cable, Bluetooth headphones, and I'm trying to decide whether I'll need a laptop stand. What would you pack?

    When Kid and wife are sleeping I'm just fine with my laptop and mouse on the couch

    Sure, but if I can have the real deal without a great hassle, then I will take that option.

    Pen, paper, asus zenscreen, laptop, mouse and keyboard.

    I can carry this with me on a daily basis (except the keyboard) from work to home and back. I have dual screens, only one power cable needed and everything is setup within 3 minutes and cleared out in under 4 minutes.

    We also faced the same question when expanding our family and we decided to sell and buy new real estate. And although it was not easy, it ultimately turned out to be the right decision. Thanks to this source, everything was done much faster https://homery.design/ I shortened some images of the lawn and roof which helped make the house more attractive and eye-catching among other options.
