Does this problem only happen initially when you connect either one of these monitors?
In other words...if you keep the same external monitor connected to your MBP...then restart or shutdown the MBP...and then restart it...does this 3x display issue reoccur?
I'm being very specific here about the sequence of events. Because you have two different external monitors, and because it sounds like you are constantly switching between these 2 external monitors (home & work). This may be a "syncing step" that the MBP must do to "communicate" properly with each monitor when it is first connected or reconnected.
So do an experiment where you are now...restart your MBP (with the external monitor connected)...and when the computer restarts, does this 3x display thing occur?
