I had a little victory last week…a Velcro victory to be exact. While organizing Charlie’s desk area, it soon became apparent that SOMETHING had to be done with the power strip sitting smack on the floor where Charlie’s feet would undoubtedly cause havoc. Now in this technologically advanced era in which we live, one would think we found the solution to this organizing dilemma on the internet…or using an app…or maybe even perusing Pinterest…right?….NOPE. We walked down to the local hardware store where a kindly 80 year old gentleman (named Fred) sold us a high powered strip of Velcro (while engaging in light banter). Back at the office, using this recent purchase, we were able to adhere the loaded power strip high on the wall within the desk kneehole. VOILA…problem solved! I see this as being one of many organizing solutions using Velcro! I was happy…Charlie was happy…and even Fred was happy (as he loves light banter). Velcro solutions are endless. Here are 4 of my favorite Velcro organizing solutions…let me know what yours are…
1. POWER STRIP UNDER WORK SURFACE (see above)
2. HIDE CHARGER CORDS ON BACK OF SURFACE
3. CREATE A “HIDDEN SPACE” BELOW SURFACE of DESK with FABRIC
4. KEEP STUFFED ANIMALS OFF FLOOR SURFACE
