Mini CableBoxâ¿¢ with Power Strip
Clean and Easy
So to be frank, I bought this product WITHOUT knowing it also cam with the mini power strip. Huge bonus for me, haha. Literally, I bought it for the convenience of having one place to throw all of my cables and power cords.
Over priced? Yes.
Overpriced even with the power strip? Yes.
Worth every penny? Yes.
Why? It served it's purpose. I'm a neat freak and a video editor, I have a ton of external hard drives that I tried to hide cables from under my desk and it was a mess. Why other companies don't make simple boxes like this is beyond me.
The Blue Lounge Mini looked so good I ordered another full sized CableBox (cheaper at Container than it is Blue Lounge's sit, other items the discount code I used was "bluecandy", 25% off).
Love BL's products and bought more which I'll review. Love The Container Store, OCD in check.
Side note, I bought a black CableBox Mini in store, apparently it's not available online. Also, if you have a store near you the store is worth the experience!

This is working out really well for me as I travel by car to different hotels that never have enough power outlets in one spot. Now I don't have to search the room for the places I plugged in my phone, tablet, and pc. When I leave I just fold all of the cords back into the cable box and take off. One issue is that the power strip is a traditional one and my large power supplies overlap but I got three in there and am satisfied.

Neat & Organized
This product does exactly what it says it does. It hides a bunch of wires and awkward power strips so they are not all over the place. Has a convenient opening for both incoming and outgoing wires. The power strip it comes with is removable. The item is reasonably priced, and comes in an assortment of colors

Great item to keep cords neat
Great item to keep cords neat and contained and minimize the dust, wish it did fit some larger plugs but overall a huge help in the cord craziness of the office
