Liveblogging Day 15: Nightstand Charging Station

I don't have too many wire woes, but there was one cord situation I didn't like. A power strip on my bedroom floor that I use to charge my phone and plug in my lamp was always visible from the doorway. So I put it inside my nightstand.

Using a box cutter and some industrial scissors, I cut out a square from the particle board on the back of the nightstand. As I strung my power strip through, I realized the cord was too short to reach the plug behind my bed, so this bulky surge protector will have to do for now. I also moved the nightstand to the other side of the bed, to allow better clearance for my closet door.

I would love to wrangle the visible media cords in the living room, but my ancient TV only has A/V cable ports in the front, and I couldn't quite justify the purchase of a new TV for the Cure. It will go on the master list, though!

How are you controlling your cords?
