Do you have a charging station set up in your house where you plug in all your devices? What have you set up and where is it?

That is a great idea! I find an available plug and a safe flat surface to lay my phone or ipad on and that's it.

The cabinet door to the right of the range top has phone plug, electric, and room to stash these things out of the way but within easy reach.

My phone charges every night on my nightstand. I also have a Bose Ipod/IPhone speaker system that also charges your phone.

I use one of my kitchen outlets which is in a convenient spot to charge my phone, and always unplug the charger after it's done.

when we built our master we did a built-in drawer unit that has a "staging" area between the upper and lower areas - my husband and I each have our own side with a plug that we use as charging stations. Plus we keep one in the kitchen area since it's at the other end of the house.

In our little office is a console table with drawers. In the drawer is a power strip for multiple plugs so one cord is looped through the back of the drawer to the wall plug. Items get plugged into the drawer plug.

My nightstand tends to be the charging spot for me. Only a pain when my phone dies before bedtime. :)

I always think the docking stations look so neat until I realize that I charge too many things in too many different places for one to work for me. Like the one pictured with multiple phones on it that looks like it's in a mudroom? Everyone in my household carries their phone with them at least half the time they're in the house, nothing would ever end up left in the mudroom.

At least there are cable management systems now that don't look bad so it's easier to tame the tangle of cords.

Yes. Always great to have a car charger. I hate it when I run out of juice in the middle of siri giving me directions. :)

We had outlets installed in the cubbies in our mudroom. Perfect place to charge as it's out of the way but still accessible. And I don't have to look at all the wires! It's a little messy right now, but you can see the outlets in two of the spaces. We had two done with USB ports, the remainder are all standard outlets.

Each recharge their mobile in his or her own room as we usually charge overnight and use the alarms on them.
