Do you spend time hunting your phone charger because you can't remember where you left it after the last time you used it?
Well, that used to be our house. AND I hated it!
So this was my solution.
All you really need to create your own charging station is a piece of furniture with a drawer. It could be a nightstand or an end table. And now you'll see why you need the drawer.
I had the husband remove the drawer on the left and drill a hole through both the back piece of the drawer and the back of the dresser. Well, several holes--we probably should have used the jigsaw once we had the hole started. (If I had to do it again, I would do that, as I'm sure it would look a lot neater on the inside.) Since the drawer is closed, it isn't a huge deal to me. And...it serves the purpose I needed.
Once the holes were drilled, we had room to put a power strip through the holes and plug the cord into the outlet behind the dresser. The power strip sits in the drawer, and when the drawer is closed--no one is the wiser that this is where everything in the house is charged.
And that is it. The whole thing took about ten minutes to do.
Now, there is no more searching for the chargers or cords! They are all in one place, and there is no need to take them out of the drawer. The drawer stores the cords when they aren't in use. About the only time they are ever taken out is when we are traveling.
We have sometimes had four cell phones and a camera battery charging at the same time, but that was when the girls still lived at home. Now, we are usually charging the Nook, a camera battery, and a phone or two. We set them all in the drawer, close the drawer, and...
This is a super simple solution to keeping your house organized and clutter free! Who knew a home charging station could be so easy?
