1) Power Strip Storage
No one likes the annoying power
strips bundling up and causing an
eye sore under a desk. To keep
them out of sight and out of mind,
simply hang a wire basket under your
desk and drill a hole (if one is not
already there) for all the cords to
fall right into your basket- not on
the floor! This is also an amazing
solution for short cords that don’t
quite reach your desk without an
extension, like a phone charger.
This is completely free, and helps
de-clutter shoes! All you need to
do is go to your local grocery
store or even bars and restaurants
and ask for a few wine case boxes.
It is simple,cheap, and effective.
The size is perfect for loose items,
such as shoes, and if you want to
get crafty you can decorate the
box however you please!

needs in one spot and keeping them
dry and rust free!

whatever size bag you need!
