Between televisions, phones, laptops, tablets, speakers, smart home gadgets, and good old-fashioned lamps, an unsightly, tangled mess of cords can build up in your home. If you feel like cords are taking over your life, try these five brilliant ways to organize them.

1) Set up a charging station.

Charge your home’s smart phones and tablets in one place with a USB charging station. The organized dock only requires one cord to be plugged into a wall socket, and can charge four devices simultaneously.
