Gadget Basket: Totally Geeky or Geek Chic?

Last week the folks over at Unclutterer suggested creating a cable basket to organize all your gadgets. It's an incredibly simple idea, but as you can see from the picture, will keep your cords organized and your primary gadgets stored in one place. Sure, it isn't as elegant or high tech as the Pottery Barn furniture with built-in chargers, but it's definitely a big step toward a cleaner desk or workspace. Do you like the idea? Is it geeky, or geek chic?

When me and my girlfriends went away last summer, we have a Gadget Basket, though we didn't call it that. When we came back from the beach or shops etc, out came our phones, wallets, mp3 players etc. It made for a very organised holiday :)

Ok I thought this was a product some company was selling and I was thinking, duh just do it yourself. Guess I should have followed the link. So it's a good diy idea! :)

It's a good idea but I like mine to be more"put away" Like in a box with a lid

We actually keep a shoebox with all our chargers under a futon in our front room. We each have all sorts of gadgets that need to be charged: iPhones, Nintendo DSes, cameras, battery packs, etc. Fortunately, it's near an outlet so it's convenient.

As a former electronics repairman (woman) - wrapping your electrical cords so tightly around the item like that really isn't good for them. Causes the metal in the wires to break (especially near the end)- causing your cord to be no good - causing you to spend money on replacements. Other than that ... pretty nifty idea.

I like it except the fact that most of the time Im using most of my gadgets so I dont think this will get used. I do have a box full of chargers though, why doesnt someone come up with clip on cable labelers? Now that I would use

i like this - my gadgets are all over the place and i never know where to put things - like my camera: where should it be stored? it usually sits in my desk drawer or on my shelf, but maybe it is in my bag since i'm trying ot take it out and use it more often.

I have this! I have a basket just for remotes. Then, I have a basket for all my computer cords that I use on a regular basis.
