A Chair Made In . . .
This is key to ensuring a comfortable workday and avoiding repetitive stress injuries. The easy, cheap way to find a chair that fits your bod is to head over to Office Max or Office Depot. They have dozens of ergonomic chairs priced at $40 to $200.
Don't rush your decision. Try five chairs that look attractive to you. Then spend five minutes in your top two choices--chairs often start to feel different after the first couple of minutes.
A candid admission: I splurged on my desk chair because I spend 12 hours a day in it, and found a chair that's considerably more comfortable to me than any other. I bought a Herman Miller Aeron chair. List price is $900, but I got it for $690 from OP Contract Furniture (www.opcontract.com).
