7 Techie Tools for Optimizing Your Workspace

A new year means it’s high time for a new way of working. We’re always on the hunt for new ways to de-clutter our desks. In fact, we tend to believe that a well-organized workspace tends to be a more creative and productive one. That’s why we were pumped when the folks at Bluelounge asked us if they could help give Brit HQ a mini makeover, specifically related to our desks.

And guess what? They want to help YOU organize your desk too! Simply enter your email address below and you’ll be entered to win $200 worth of Bluelounge product PLUS a $500 Target gift card! The contest runs through January 27th and the winner will be chosen at random. See full terms and conditions here.

This contest is now closed.

Armed with cord organizers, pocket chargers and a handful of laptop feet, check out our favorite seven techie tools for optimizing our workspace. You can find all of these goodies at your local Target or on — and you know we love us some Target! :)

1. Kii ($39.99): This itty bitty charger fits right on your keychain, for real. It makes it easy for you to plug in to charge or sync devices from any laptop computer without carrying around a full on charger. I’ve personally been using this for months and swear by it!

2. CableClip ($9.99): We’ve all been there. A piece of tape or a rubber band will do just fine to our cables in order. Reality check — it’s not working. This simple clip keeps all sizes of cables tidy and untangled. It’s also a great way to organize and stow away extra cables you don’t use on a daily basis. It’s totally the new Chip Clip ;)

3. Casa ($14.99): Doesn’t your iPhone or iPad want a place to call home… on your desk? The answer is yes. For the iPad, Casa can hold things together horizontally or vertically, and the little cubby makes it easy to store cables, headphones and the like. It’s a compact unobtrusive item that will keep everything you need at the ready, when you need it.

4. CableBox Mini ($29.99): And now, the MOTHER of all cable management solutions. Whether you’ve got a cobweb of cables under or on your desk, next to your computer, under your nightstand or behind the TV, we’re guessing those cables have seen better days. CableBox is about to be your new best friend. It comes with a 4-socket surge protector right in the box so just plug everything in and stow that ‘ish away! So easy.

5. Cool Feet ($12.99): Got a laptop that seems to be packing heat? Then you probably need a pack of Cool Feet. And yes, I’m a poet and you didn’t even know it.

6. CableDrop + CableDrop Mini ($9.99): These little doodads are made to help you get your cables to go where you want them to. No chargers coming unplugged at random, no having to use a paperweight to get your USB cord to stay in the right place. Go for the CableDrop to handle thicker cables like power cords, or go for the Mini to corral smaller cables and connectors. Simply [Cable]Drop it like it’s hot ;)

7. Rolio ($9.99): No one likes throwing their phone on the ground when they need to charge it, but we’ve all been there. This little gizmo transforms your Apple Lightning charger cable into a super portable wall dock. Done and done.

And just like that, we are all WAY more organized!

Ahhh, fall. There are so many things to love about this time of year (give us ALL the sweaters and pumpkin-flavored eats). But, high on the list comes autumn decor candles, throws, textiles — you name it. Of course, buying items and actually adding them to your room are two different things. So we're turning to Instagram for the best styling advice and inspo for the season. Scroll on to see everything you need to get those wheels turning!

@sbkliving: Sometimes, it only takes a chic doormat to transition your front steps for the season. Hello, fall!

@rachelpuccetti: Excuse us while we spend an entire lazy Sunday relaxing in this fall-infused space.

@farmhousetofrills: A monochrome mantel never looked so chic. (That fireplace pumpkin setup is seriously *genius*.)

@faith_hope_home: Greet guests with a fall-themed entrance to set the tone for a day of pumpkin carving or scary movie marathoning.

@simplysoutherncottage: Don't forget about those nooks and crannies! This entryway/mudroom situation is capturing our little harvest-loving hearts.

@6thirtydecor: Speaking of pumpkins, pick up a few extra gourds to pave the way into your cozy autumn abode.

@farmsteadonfirst: That guest bedroom you weren't sure what to do with it? Transform it into a rustic retreat with some fall signage and mustard-yellow and green accents.

@fiddleleafinteriors: We're going to take a second to *swoon* over this adorable kitchen setup. Those farmhouse accents and simple centerpiece setup? We're in love.

@ohmydearblog: Contrary to what you think, florals *aren't* just for spring. Bring them into your abode by selecting buds in moody tones to pay homage to the season.

@simply.mrs.z: Drawn to modern style? Play up the Halloween vibes by picking black, orange and brass accents to rock on places like your bookshelf. (Bonus points for carrying the theme over to your textiles.)

@drivewaytodreams_crystal: We're going to go ahead and give two thumbs up to all of these orange-hued accents. Backdropped with a neutral furnishings and they truly *pop*!

@cripcollectiveig: For those who don't want to go overboard with the "fall stuff" this one will speak to you. Compile a couple of cute throws and a minimalist pumpkin print on your mantle and you're set

@cavcottage: Who said fun pillows were limited to furnishings only? We're ALL about this entry display.

@houseon77th: This daybed setup is a *dream*. But actually, this would be the perfect space to doze off in come the colder days.

@kristenforgione: For a more festive Halloween look, overhaul your living space with a spooky handmade addition like this one. *Googles paper bat DIYs.*
