Simple gadget storage. Ikeahacker spotted this computer desk organizer made of an IKEA Fira mini chest. The hacker removed the upper drawers and drilled a hole for his cables. With minimal effort (and cost), all of his computer-related equipment is elevated from the desk.
We might have just drilled holes the size of our cables, and put it in a less conspicuous place. However, it's a great idea and the compartments allows for lots of hidden gadgets. The Fira is available at Ikea for $12.99.
