Do you feel like you are constantly tripping over electronic devices in your home? Depending on the number of people in a household, it is not uncommon to have ten or more digital devices like smart phones, tablets and iPods in the one home! And I think it is pretty safe to say that small devices are here to stay.
So what can you do to keep your devices organised and orderly?
The single biggest tip I can give anyone in a busy family home, is to designate a specific place for storing your devices. It is even better if you can sit down together as a family and decide which solution everyone would prefer to use.
Finding the right solution really depends on your situation. I have put together some of my favourites from across the internet. Let me know what you think!!
6 ideas for organising your digital devices
As you may be learning, I love DIY hacks!! A magazine rack turned sideways is perfect for storing multiple tablets. Drill holes in the back and you can hide the cords away! I love this pretty wooden one that I found on the '100 things 2 do' website.
The magazine rack got me thinking... what about a letter holder?! An upright letter holder would be great for holding devices of all different sizes. Again, you could tuck a power board behind it for plugging in the cords or just use it for storage. I found this beautiful wooden holder on Etsy for inspiration but I would encourage you to look around your home before buying something new.

This $5 rack from Ikea is another simple idea for storing tablets.

Last but not least, I wanted to include this idea by Jillee where she turns a simple cardboard box into a charging station. I love this solution because it uses everyday items and hides all the cords out-of-sight for a tidy look. Full instructions on how to make it are on the 'one good thing' website.
