DIY Charging Station

30 Minutes
Are you tired of the mess of phones and gadgets charging in your home? Ours were all over the kitchen counter and I couldn't handle it anymore. I did some research and found Jessica's post on Four Generations One Roof where she used a breadbox to keep her charging clutter contained. With our modified version we charge up to 5 devices at once without having power cords everywhere!
A Clutter Free Counter
After finding the perfect sized breadbox simply drill a hole in the back for a power cord. (Check the post for details on location so you don't run into trouble later.)
Drill a hole for the cord
Using the great USB adapter we found there's only a need for one power cord! Place the USB adapter in the breadbox and feed the cord through your hole to an outlet.

Secure the USB adapter to the side of the breadbox so it doesn't float around.
Connect up to 5 devices to charge at the same time! Check out this awesome charging station for keeping your gadgets organized. For more details visit the blog, German Pearls.

    I used my breadbox too, but because of space constrains I sat it on the flat back end and the door drops down. I used a multi-charger device that a charge 4 devices at once. I used the hole I made in the back for the charger cord as well as to bring the devices charging wires through. ☺️
