Organize your chargers, live forever

Do you have one of those spots in your kitchen where everything lands? The cell phone chargers, pens, pencils, scraps of paper, stray kittens, junked cars, spy manuals?

Don't we all?

I was shopping around recently for a solution for a client who wants to organize her kitchen counter top and came up with a few solutions I like:

This one is from Pottery Barn and comes in black, red and in a couple of wood stains. I love the way it organizes the electronics. You could stick a vase or planter for pens and pencils on that top shelf, too.

It sells for between 59.99 and $79, depending on the color.

This one is from Vat19 and is $48.95. It's a bit more utilitarian looking, but would blend right in if you've got a dark counter top.

Check out this one from It's smaller, but I love this lime green. It's $19.99 and comes in black and red, too.

This is from KangaRoom Storage and is made of bamboo. It's got a sleeker, more modern look and costs $45.

Finally, this comes from Levenger and is quite handsome, I thought. It also comes in black and is $158.

Where you put the kittens, though, I don't know...

These are good ideas - I need to figure something out for my cell phone and junk...maybe a nice basket?

Oh, just to let you know, I found some at TJMaxx and Marshall's that look just like the one from Pottery Barn. They are in white or black, and they are @ $20.00! Great savings, eh?

These are cute if you only have 2 cellphones to charge. I have a video camera charer, a regular camera charger, the cable to download from camera to computer, and on and on the list goes...any ideas for that? I have a mess to go through everytime i'm looking for the right charger. Help!!
