Cords and chargers for electronic devices are a constant discussion point at the Unclutterer offices, in the reader comments, and through our contact page. I think it’s safe to say that cords are a frustrating source of clutter for all of us.
Recently, we’ve had a slew of suggestions for containing cord clutter from our readers. After combing through them and doing some additional information gathering, I think the following suggestions are downright brilliant. And, as far as we can tell, these readers don’t work for the companies that make, distribute, or promote these products.
Reader Rob suggests: The CORDhog as a great way to hold up slack and adjust the length of cords. (The CORDhog is pictured on the right.)
Reader Aegir suggests: The CableYoYo as another attractive cable spool system.
Reader Beaman suggests: The KangaRooM Charging Station as a sleek way to hide the cords and docking stations for your cell phone, iPod, and other personal electronic devices.
Reader Ian suggests: The PocketDock AV as a simple, clutter-free, multiple connector kit that allows you to link your iPod to numerous AV output devices (like televisions, stereos, and projectors) without having to carry a slew of cables with you.
Do you have suggestions for containing cord clutter? Feel welcome to drop them into the comments section! Like I mentioned above, we’re always on the lookout for good ways to control cord and charger clutter.
