Editing on an sRGB panel

Hey so I've been spoiled and only ever worked on photos on an aRGB monitor. I'll be moving for half a year and wont be bringing my 100lbs NEC monitor with me. I'll probably be working on an sRGB IPS panel.

My question is. If I work in say Prophoto RGB all the colors outside sRGB will be out of gamut for the monitor so what is the point? I may also introduce saturation I cant see. Is it just smarter to work in sRGB mode considering I probably wont need to convert to CMYK later?

I've always had that same question, which color space do I use, but i just recently got a rite color munki from B&H, the cheapest model they have and I go with that. I learned that you must have your monitor calibrated. There are units that can calibrate your printer as well. Its the only way to have true colors or close to it

I just think if your monitor is sRGB, editing in a wide gamut colour space would be like a colour blind person editing a full colour image.
