Reduce Electrical Cord Clutter
The SolutionTo the rescue: A multiple-outlet adapter expands the capabilities of the conventional two-plug wall outlet.The GE Side-Access Six-Outlet Adapter ($5, Gracious Home, 212-517-6300) provides three outlets per side, and unlike a power strip, it doesn’t squander precious countertop space. To contain excess cords fully (particularly important if you have a tug-happy toddler), plastic discs with reels wind up and store the surplus. Try the XL Cable Organizer ($15, containerstore.com).
Installation savvy: When charging two gadgets at the same time, plug them into opposite ends of the multi-outlet adapter. This will accommodate those clunky transformer plugs without covering up additional sockets.
