Can you find your remote? What about the DVD player remote? Or that one weird remote that you found last month that you had no idea what it went to, but now you know it’s for that old CD player, where did that one go?
If this sounds even remotely (O.K. I’ll stop now) familiar, then there are other options than just looking in the couch cushions.
I like this one because, even though it is a little rough around the edges, it is made to be hidden. I know, just what you need, even more hidden remotes. But you can just tack this little box to the inside of a cabinet and close them all away. This is also a nice option if you have toddlers who like to grab things off low surfaces and go wandering with them.
This next little guy is pretty much fool-proof and (let’s admit it) some people need obvious simplicity. Set this wire basket out on a table; it’s kitschy enough to be interesting, but transparent enough to stay out of the spotlight.
And of course, you know I like to class it up a bit. This might be the most refined piece of electronic wrangling equipment that I have ever seen. Granted, you don’t have to make it the Thanksgiving centerpiece the way this picture implies you should, but you don’t have to disgracefully hide it away when company comes.
Personally, I’d rather have it in a box or basket than chilling under the couch with a lost flip-flop and half-eaten candy necklace. Whether you choose to house your remotes in a shoe box or trade them all in for a universal remote, the name of the game is convenience.
