DIY Command Station @ Tatertots and Jello

Great ideas! I have this really cool USB charger – it looks like an outlet cover but it has 1 standard outlet and 2 usb outlets on it. What’s neat about it is that it’s thick and designed so you can rest your cell phone on it. It’s by Sharper Image. Sam’s Club had a 2 pack for $20 awhile back.
I have 4 granddaughters & I love to organize there room. Those ideas were great.
