Manually by exporting all your data mail, todo, calendar etc to a pst file
Then import those files on you home pc

Microsoft does not provide a method of syncing

if your looking to simply transfer files, try setting up a VPN
if you want to have your contacts, try setting up both of the computers' outlooks to the same e-mail account

Copy your entire mailbox and folders to a PST file. Take it home on a flash drive and import it.

I'm not able to select everything (personal folders and my email account.  Does this mean I have to create multiple backup files (i.e. multiple pst files)?

Yes I always make a seperator .pst file for each item

IE Inbox

You can to the same procedure I gave you just make sure you change the name of the file being saved
Just use the file names like ibox.pst notes.pst etc.
