Do your gadgets make you crazy? Cords all over your counters? Here are ideas to organize that electronic mess.

Like many families, we’ve recently gotten many more new iPads, Kindles and phones, but all that convenience does cause a lot of clutter.  This is what it looked like when my parents came to visit, and this is the norm in many households. That’s two ipads, two kindles, and three or four phones. That’s a lot of cords and plugs taking up a lot of real estate on the kitchen counter.

You could shell out some serious coin for organizers.  Check out the http://www.kanexlive.com/sydnee/ for $150.

I like the look of this bamboo charging stand, and the price is good, too, at only $35, but it’s backordered when I last checked.

What started out to be a fun little project to find a better way to organize became a clear necessity when I noticed the damage done to come of the charger cords by the felines of the house.

Really, these little guys are murder.

So I started with one of my favorite little kitchen products, a letter organizer that you can find at many decor stores, like HomeGoods and TJMaxx.

    how much will you charge to make me one?

  2. Love this!!!! I have one of those right now, but it houses coupons. Is it sick that one of my favorite things to do is go through it to weed out and recycle all of the expired ones? Don’t answer that!

      Isn’t it amazing? Just a few years ago, there’s no way our gadgets would have fit in something like this. Now they are as small as a pad of paper! And yes, I get the high you feel from purging old coupons, I really do.

    I love this! Does it come in white? What a great way to keep electronics organized and cute!

      Jeanine, I’m starting to wonder if I should manufacture these! Yes, I have seen these envelope sorters in white lack, brown, grey, and sometimes in colors. Keep an eye on your local JT Maxx.
