Storage Star ~ Make your own charging station


I love love love when readers come up with inexpensive storage solutions to fill an organizing need.  Marci, from the lovely blog Overcoming Busy, did just that in a post yesterday that brought a huge smile to my face.  I knew I just had to share it with you.

Don’t all those charging cords for cell phones, Mp3’s, Nintendo DS’s, etc drive you a little nutso scattered all over the house?  It certainly does me but those commercial charging stations can be pretty expensive.  Marci decided to create her own using supplies from Michaels all for under $15.00!  Check it out:

Be sure to visit her post to read exactly how she did it.  Way to go Marci for thinking outside of the box!

    Thanks for the Storage Star feature!! This really looks a lot cuter on my night stand than a traditional re-charging station.

    How creative. I might have to make a trip to Micheal’s and see if they have any of those boxes left.

    I have 2 different camera battery chargers and a cell phone charger. They sit in one spot and I know where they are until my daughter borrows one and goes away for a day. They get returned to the right spot eventally. When I went on a trip, I took 2 chargers with me. I put them in a ziploc bag and was able to find them easily. Thanks for sharing great storage ideas. Have a great day!!

    Yeah not exactly new or innovative ad this has been on several blogs, shown on DIY, and even martha stewart. If you do a google search you will find a bunch of them and instructions all over the place. So its not like this person “thought” of it, came up with it, or was oh so innovative.

    And the ones on DIY and a couple of other blogs, were actually much better then this one, and had many more places for charging.

    Why do people who have nothing nice to say insist on saying it anyway?

    Get a life “George”. Not every one spends their day on DIY or googling. Jerk.

    I guess George caught me without my laptop in Michaels clearance aisle to check if anyone else had ever done anything like this!! I’ll try and do better next time :)
