Storage Solution # 3  A Practical Charger Holder

This is what (a small section) of my countertop usually looks like:

I know, I know, seriously, is this what I am writing a post about? Yes. And I’ll tell you why - because I just saved myself a lot of money from buying my dream charger holder thingamajig from PotteryBarn. I’m sure you all have seen the one I am talking about….

Ahh, so beautiful. And with all the electronics and cords we have flowing around here - I knew I was destined to have it, but instead my inner thrifty came out and found this cute little wooden letter holder at Hobby Lobby for a couple dollars on clearance. I drilled two holes in the back to make room for the chargers.

Drrillllll, drilllllll…

and…

…I think this does the trick. And for the price - it’s a keeper!

And speaking of ‘keeper’ — who remembers trapper keepers?

My next storage solution could use something similar…I’m on the hunt!

    Clever! I’m thinking I may need to invest in a drill. Does it require a license to carry? :)

    What a smart girl you are.

    I am starting a NEW Mr. Linky party. It will begin on Aug 10th so everyone will have a week and a half to think about their first post. I have a poll up for votes on which button should be the new button. The “party” is called The Knock Off Knock Out-where THRIFTY meets creative sensation. Go over and learn more about the new weeky event and I would appreciate if you would cast your vote and HELP pick the new button design and its the last week for the July GIVE-A-Way, if you would like to be a part of that event..
