Mission Organization: Week 6 - Those Pesky Remotes

This week for Mission Organization I put the remotes for my TV in a new place. Usually the remotes can be found scattered around on the couch or somewhere nearby. Sometimes they are missing until a major search is conducted.                                 

On a good day the remotes would all be on this little table beside the couch.

Sometimes they would be scattered under the cushions, behind the pillows, or who knows where. The remotes need a place to be put away.

I looked around the house for a basket or something I could stash them in.

This metal silverware rack has never worked very well for my flatware because the openings are too wide and the pieces can slip through from one section to the other.

These knives have even slipped out the end. So maybe it's time to repurpose this rack for something more useful.

With its silverware sections it's a perfect fit for the remotes. It works much better holding these remotes than it ever did holding silverware.


  1. What a fantastic idea! We can never find the remote!

  2. Clever idea. I have a big crude silver bowl on my coffee table that the remotes land in. One Direct TV is suppose to work for all, but when I bought a new TV, I couldn't get the one remote to sync with the TV. UGH!

  9. Awesome idea. I use a basket from Wal Mart, but I prefer this because they're upright Nd easy to grab. Thanks for the tip
