Controlling the Cords – Part 2

In my last post, I wrote about my efforts to minimize the cord clutter in my redesigned home office (see Controlling the Cords.) My readers really enjoyed the product recommendations. So I thought I would showcase the cord-control products I am using in the rest of my living room. When I decorated my living room,  I placed the sofa in the middle of the room instead of against the wall. That allows space behind it for my home office, but that isn’t why I…

I’ve had a home office in the corner of my living room since starting my organizing business 14 years ago. My husband, a research scientist at a medical school, does a lot of writing on his laptop at the dining room table, going into the office only for meetings. While working from home was new for…
