I have something to admit. When I first revealed our office, there was one area I did my best to cover up—the cord corner. I’m sure you know the spot; that place where the wifi, cable, power cords, and miscellaneous wires all get together and throw a party for the dust bunnies. In the past, I’ve done my best to distract from it with an awkwardly-placed potted plant, but the corner in our office was out of control. I guess that’s what happens when you put a record player, router, speaker, and four computer chargers in one place.
It became commonplace for me to ask my friends about their cord solutions until I took to the web in a desperate online search. When I came across this CableBin, at the end of a Googling marathon, I think I actually said, “Where have you been all my life?”
The concept is simple: The back of the bin has a slit that runs down the middle, allowing you to pile cords and strips to your heart’s content, then run them out the back-end. I was thrilled to discover it was large enough to hold our entire wifi router, a power strip, and several cords. Placed with the discreet seam facing the wall, you would never know the mess within.
