DIY Charging Station and Cord Organizer

You know what really annoys me? Cords. I hate when cords are everywhere. Not only are they an eye sore, but they are laying there, just asking for toddlers to touch them. When cords are laying around, there’s no stopping a little one from playing with them, no matter how many times you tell them no.

So these cords in our living room were driving me bonkers.
These cords are the chargers for our Ipad, Iphones, and the lamp is connected in there too.
I knew I had to organize this somehow. Inspired by the Bajan Texan, I went to HomeGoods in search of of a decorative box. I was ecstatic when I found one on the clearance section for $2.00!! I brought it home and cut a hole with an exacto knife in the back.

I ran the cords threw the hole and then just laid all the chargers in the box.
Cheap and Easy Cord Organization
Now my table looks like this!! No more cords dangling!

When I want to charge my phone, I just pull the cord out and set my phone on the box! Perfect! Can’t beat that for two dollars!

I love it so much that I went back to HomeGoods and bought another box for our bedroom! Can’t wait to see how that one turns out!

    1. Thanks Kimberly! I hate cords too and always worry they are too enticing for small little kid hands to grab!
