Another option is to use "< buffer, subtree/region restriction"
option while creating agenda using "C-c a".  Please also see
section 10.1 of Org manual

Briefly, if you hit "<" after "C-c a", then the agenda will be
restricted to displaying only the items from current buffer.  If
you press "<" twice, then the agenda view will be limited to only
the current subtree.  Sec. 10.1 talks about setting and removing
permanent restriction on agenda.  This way you can focus on only
the work items at work, home items at home (it does seem you have
split at least work items in a separate file) and even on a
specific area/project (subtree really) if you so wish.
