The ECHOGEAR Outlet Shelf is one of those little things you’ll buy that will drastically change your life. Ok, that’s a little over-dramatic but seriously, it’s the little things that make life so much easier. I can’t event count the times I wish I had a little shelf to put my phone on while it’s charging. At the back of the shelf, there’s a little hole so you can push your cord through. If you don’t have a short cable to use, you can tie it up and put it behind whatever device you have on the shelf. I love that feature because the cords drive me nuts. The shelf can hold anything up to 10lbs. It’s very simple and quick to install, just like any outlet cover. Get one for $15 on Amazon.
