The Cure for Too-Short Charger Cables
If you've ever stumbled over a charging cord that was stretched from the outlet to a side table, you may want to take a cue from blogger Ashley Johnston, who turned an old lotion bottle into a cell phone holster. The container keeps your phone close to the outlet, and tucks away the cable, so you don't have to worry about tripping over your cell again. (Johnston notes that she's had no problems using the holster, but commenters on the blog suggest sticking an adhesive hook on the wall near the outlet—that way the cord is still contained, but the holster isn't resting against the socket.)
