Family Room Remote Station ~ Bento Style

This shop is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group™ and Rubbermaid Bento Organizers but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #HolidayBento

"A place for everything and everything in its place." You've heard the organizer's creed before and you may be one that lives by it. I try to be more organized, but typically fail in the maintenance mode...probably because I don't have the right tools. This week, I was determined to create a Family Room Remote Station ~ Bento Style.

With the holidays upon us, and probably more guests in our home, I needed to get a handle on the room we spend the most time. It was time to organize the cords, the gadgets, and the remotes. This is pretty typical - headphones dangling off the couch cushions, remotes tucked in the cracks of the furniture and Ipods hidden under the table.

I've tried wrangling all these items before into a pretty box that sat on the coffee table, but inevitably, the cords would get tangled or the screens scratched.

On a recent trip to Target, I saw these Bento Organizers by Rubbermaid and knew they were the answer to my dilemma. They come in multiple sizes and all of them have these Flex Dividers that keep the contents of your box neat and orderly.

I purchased the medium Bento Organizer for my family room table, and set to work filling it with our remotes, cords, batteries and gadgets. Are you loving the Flex Dividers as much as I am? This is a much better solution than just tossing all these items in a box.

After I filled the box with the assorted items, I figured I should probably add a little Christmas cheer to the family room also. I brought out a red beaded runner and started gathering some festive decorations like the Christmas Brooch Art and a candle with pine and berry candle ring.
I even extended the life of a white pumpkin by adding a holiday pick and a Merry Christmas ribbon.
So, I haven't quite achieved the "place for everything and everything in its place" prize, but I have a good start, and I know the product that's going to help me get there...Rubbermaid Bento Organizers. I plan on going back to purchase a couple more for Christmas gifts...possibly the geometric one filled with goodies for a certain female tween in my family.
