    Re-purpose a shoebox to organize your chargers for your cell phone, iPod, BlackBerry, PDA PROJECT 3 Cord keeper Recharge your portable electronics — cell phone, iPod, BlackBerry, PDA — without getting your wires crossed. By repurposing a low-tech shoebox, you can organize and safeguard your high-tech accessories. STEP 1 Empty a clean, sturdy shoebox. Measure and cut wallpaper or decorative fabric to its dimensions, wrapping the top and bottom pieces separately. Secure the material with spray adhesive. STEP 2 On one long side of the box, measure and mark placement for four evenly spaced eyelet holes. Make the first hole about 3 inches in from the box's edge. Cut eyelet holes with an X-Acto knife. Repeat on the other long side, aligning holes so the wires cross through the box. STEP 3 Purchase an extra-large eyelet kit from a hardware store, and fit the pieces using the manufacturer's directions as a guide. Feed the wires through both sets of holes and close the lid; recharge your gadgets. SAFETY TIP Keep electrical devices such as plugs and power strips outside the shoebox, to avoid risk of heating up or fire. For more safety tips, visit esfi.org.

I like this kind of thinking! 'Never again forget your cell phone. Add a charging station to your entryway and it will be right there to grab as you walk out the door. A unit such as this one can charge several devices at once and also keeps cords neatly tucked away.' Thanks Beautiful Homes and Gardens!
