It is not usual to find gadgets-related articles in a decorating magazine like Better Homes and Gardens. However, it has provided an inspiration for homeowners who own a lot of gadgets and find it too messy to see them littered about while being charged. It is time to turn on your inner Martha Stewart and create a multiple charging station using a flip-top bread box.

All you need are are the following: a flip-top breadbox (old or new); surge protector; rubber grommets, sized for power cord; power drill with metal and wood bits; one-fourth-inch MDF board; a ruler; an optional spray paint; and an optional label maker. Ask your local hardware when purchasing some of these materials.

You can first apply spray paint over the bread box to complement the color of your home. Then, drill a hole at the back where the power cable will run and protect it with a rubber grommet. Thread the power-strip cord through the hole, leaving the surge protector inside the bread box. Cut the MDF board to fit the length and width of the bread box with the lid open, adding a few similarly-sized openings on the front panel for USB and other cables. Then, put the board in the box to cover the power strip, allowing each cable to peek through individual openings for an organized docking.
