Tip #2: Have a place for everything

We all love our gadgets, but that love can sometimes lead to a mess of wires and lost time looking for chargers. If you find yourself with this dilemma, it might be a good idea to buy docking stations for the devices you use often.

This should solve two problems. The first one is obvious. Your device should always be charged and ready to go, since it will be sitting in the base station on your desk. The second is you should always know where your charger is, and you will spend less time looking around for it. You could also keep one at home and one at work, so you don’t have to worry about leaving it at one or the other.

Most devices have base stations available. I recently wrote about one for the Nintendo DS. Nicholas did this post about a Transformers one for an iPod. So it shouldn’t be too hard to find one for your favorite gadget.
