Okay, it’s time to get real today and talk about some of the not-so-pretty parts of our house.
Corey and I have quite a few electronic gadgets that we use all of the time in our living room, and unfortunately the cords for keeping them all charged and ready to use are less than easy on the eyes. We both have laptops, and Corey also has an iPad that we like to be able to have charged at any time, so that leads to quite the mess of cords next to our couch, and I don’t know about you guys but I’m not a fan of the tangled up cord look.
Luckily, we’re able to hide the majority of them behind our curtains, which means that they aren’t too visible most of the time. But what happens when we actually want to use them? We have to go digging around behind the couch to find the plug, and that usually means that everything gets pulled out from behind the curtains and we have a big mess on our hands all over again.
It also means that we usually just leave the cord hanging on our couch, which leads to this super-cute look.
It gets old. Fast.
So, when I got an email from MOS (Magnetic Organization System) asking if I wanted to check out their cord organizer and review it, I jumped at the chance. You guys know me – I don’t do a lot of reviews, and when I do it’s only if I’m truly excited about a product, so you’ve gotta know this one is good.
Basically, it’s this cute little aluminum guy (they also come in white and black) that is magnetic and holds all of our cords in one place. It’s a simple concept but it makes our lives oh-so-much easier, and I’m a big fan of it. They even send along these cute little color-coded tags that have magnets in them, just in case your cords aren’t magnetized. This means that when we’re done using a plug, we can just toss it back on our little MOS and it’ll stay there, nice and out of sight, until we need it again. And we no longer have the cord-hanging-over-the-couch look going on, which makes me very happy.
The other cool part? It comes with a 3M adhesive circle that you can stick to the back of the organizer so that you can attach it to the wall (or the side of a desk, or wherever you want it) so that you don’t have to take up your table space if you’re limited on room!
This little guy has definitely been a huge help in keeping our cord craziness a little more contained, and I no longer have to spend five minutes digging around the couch to find my laptop plug when I need it, which is fabulous! I’m definitely a fan.
How do you keep your cords contained?
Disclaimer: The people at MOS sent me an organizer to review, but all the opinions are totally mine, and I wouldn’t be talking about it if I didn’t actually use it and love it!
