SOS -- A Home Keeping Question For Which I Do Not Know the Answer...In other words, you get to write the post today!
My husband is a computer engineer and does a lot of his work from home, which means that we have cables and things plugged in everywhere. On top of that, we have computers, various cell and cordless phones, battery charged hand vacuums, battery charged home improvement tools, and battery charged gardening tools that must be plugged in somewhere. And, we have lamps with long cords, etc. We do have some cord covers which are designed to fit on a cord that runs across a floor. And, I saw a neat thing on HGTV where someone sewed a gauzy tube to cover up a cord. But, otherwise, I'm at a loss as to how to hide all of these various gismos and their respective cords.
So, what do you do with any gadgets in your house that must be charged or plugged into an outlet? Where do you store them all? Do you have any tricks for concealing cords for lamps or tools? Do any of you have husbands whose job requires they have equipment with lots of cords at home that you must learn to vacuum around? If so, how do you handle the vacuuming around these items?
If you have any hints for me, I'd appreciate them!
