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.
Made just a few little adjustments…
Screwed on a short extension cord, and carefully arranged all the gadget plugs…
And ended up with a really nice, safe place to stash all the gear.
Is getting your counters and desk clutter contained on your wish list for 2013?
