Spring Cleaning Tips: Decluttering Countertops with Hidden Charging Stations

Stroll through your neighbor’s kitchen or take a look around your own house and chances are you will see counters littered with the electronic gadgets of everyday life. Keeping cell phones, Ipods and tablets close at hand in rooms that get a lot of usage makes sense. But we don’t necessarily need to see all of those devices and the accompanying wires and plugs every time we walk into a room.

We came across a couple of nifty solutions to the problem of electronic device storage on Pinterest that may be useful if you are trying to declutter your space for spring. Let us know what you think, and if you have an electronic device storage solution to share, please pass it along.
