So you've decided to launch your very own homebased business. Now you have to deal with the little matter of equipping the whole thing. You don't know where to start or what you'll need, and furthermore, you're on a limited budget. Never fear: We've put together a list of basic office equipment and services for you, and all of it can be had for less than $4,000.
