As I’ve compiled more digital fun things, I’ve found I’m in a mess with tangling cords, and running out of outlets. And during the week I’m about to shoot a wedding, there are batteries and chargers all over the place. Madness! This is my GORM shelving unit by IKEA, with extra shelves, this all courtesy of my good friend Ricki who helped me organize my life when I first moved into my house. Clip on basket can be seen here.
So I organized a bit, and then I emailed our electrician to ask if it was possible to add an outlet right around the corner.
A call to our electrician (poor guy had to go in the hot attic), I had an outlet installed!
I can now use two crazy large surge protectors with USB (smaller here) and leave them plugged in to charge. I love my label maker – it plugs into your computer USB and you can select any font you already have installed on you computer. Graphic designer dream come true.
I recommend this surge protector from Staples because it has 10 outlets and 2 USB charging ports. I also like how the outlets are spaced for those odd ball plugs.
I loved how NYLO Hotel in Dallas tied their long electrical cords – I think I need to do this around our house.
And that’s how I charge all my gadgets and gizmos. Do you have any good solutions? I feel like organization is always a constant work in progress.
