Start by decluttering. Go through your desk drawers, media console, and storage cabinets to gather all your electronics and tech devices, including cords and accessories and put in a big pile.
2. Purge (Donate-Recycle-Trash)
Swiftly dispose of all broken or unused stuff. Find a charity or organization where you can donate your old phones. For anything else search for electronics recycling stations near you. Best Buy, according to its website, will happily take all your used tech.
3. Organize by Type of Use
Sort the rest by category. Match each device with its charger, cord, or accessory. From there, sort each category of stuff into its own container, and label each one. To keep things hyper-organized, put smaller items — like earphones, flash drives, or outlet adapters — into ziplock bags and label.
4. Inventory it!
Create an inventory list of everything. Use the same categories you used when organizing, and include important details if you can, like the model number, serial number, or date of purchase. Update this list on an annual basis when you do your annual spring clean!
5. Set up Charging Stations
For all the devices in your life you cannot live without day to day like your phones and tablets, you need a couple of designated charging stations. Stop dragging your cords and chargers from room to room and leaving a mess behind. Have at least one central charging station on each floor of living space.
