22 Mount a power strip container underneath your desk to eliminate floor clutter

22-Ways-To-Create-More-Space

Mount a power strip container underneath your desk to eliminate floor clutter: I was tired of looking at the nasty tangle of power cables and power strip under my desk. So after much deliberation I decided to mount as much as I could to the bottom of the desk. In a nutshell I found a regular wire basket, attached it to the bottom of my desk, and placed the power strip inside facing down so the outlets were still accessible along with all the power bricks I could get in there. Below is a little before and after, I’m quite pleased with the results. Also, just for clarification, that big box under my desk is the subwoofer for my speakers.
