Handy Gadget

I was standing in line at Hallmark the other day to purchase the snowmen ornaments my mother wanted for her birthday, and right next to the register was a stash of odds and ends things. Pens, magnets, eyeglass holders, necklaces, etc. I glanced by the bulk of it without a second thought, but this item caught my eye:
Photobucket

This handy dandy little gadget keeps my charging cell phone and the respective cords UP OFF THE COUNTER TOP, which makes wiping down the counters and having a clean and organized looking kitchen that much easier. The $5.99 ($6.99? Now I can't remember!) price tag seemed reasonable enough to me, and I quickly picked out the pink one, and added it to my pile of things to purchase.

What do you think?

Oooh, nice! I have about a gazillion cords all over my counter and I CAN'T STAND IT! I may have to look for this one. Thanks for the tip.

Oh, and sorry posts have been so slow in coming...I got a new toy (Nintendo DS Lite) and I've been having an OCD fit over one of the games. I just HAD to pass the SIMS Castaway game. It took me three days, but I did it. I'm over it now. :0) I most definitely won't be finding the time to blog as much as you do, though. You're Superwoman!

Looks like a great idea.
Especially since SOMEONE (Mirinda)
left the end of my charger dangling in the toaster while she made TOAST. Yes I screamed.

Who would have thought a simple piece of plastic could make such a difference?? I think I need one of those for J's phone! I usually charge mine in the bathroom...but he has chargers all over the living room for his own phone and a work phone...it drives me crazy!
