Susan here with a clever item to consider as you get organized for Back to School. This giveaway is sponsored by LivingPlug.

Back to School Giveaway Event

Getting ready for the Back to School season means kicking family organization systems back into action.

One important – and simple – organization tip is to set up a smart phone/device charging station on your kitchen counter or another central location that’s away from kids’ bedrooms.

But a challenge to setting up such a charging station is the standard, old electrical outlet that only allows two devices to charge.

Here’s a fun and stylish solution that actually conserves energy… LivingPlug!

Tip Charge Devices in Central Location

LivingPlug is redefining the electrical outlet with our first product, the INLET along with an integrated faceplate system. We are not only redeveloping its staid appearance, but also improving child safety, conserving energy and enhancing utility.

Watch this video to see how simple it is to start using a LivingPlug

LivingPlug Benefits

The INLET is child safe, energy efficient, and aesthetically designed.

Child Safety
Did you know that approximately 2400 children receive emergency room treatment every year for injuries caused by inserting objects into electrical outlets.

The INLET transforms an unguarded duplex outlet into a protected powersource with three Tamper Resistant (TR) receptacles (hidden on the bottom of the device) and the option to further secure directly to a standard duplex outlet.

Aesthetic Design
Instead of typical outlets that are typically cropped or photoshopped out of photos, the LivingPlug has several appealing designs including an option to design your own faceplate.

Energy Efficient
15% or more of a home energy bill is wasted due to phantom or vampire charges, appliances that are plugged in, but not in use. The LivingPlug facilitates energy conservation via the UNLPUG button that cuts power to the receptacles and the USB.

    With a teen and two parents in the house, there are multiple devices that could use charging all at the same time!

  2. says

    That could totally come in handy around here. We have old outlets and without a power strip the plugs are somewhat loose. This could be a huge help especially with all our devices.

  3. Natalie F says

    I want to win because my family has so many electronic devices that need to be plugged in. This looks like it functions well and also has a stylish look. Great product!

  4. diana.padilla says

    why not want to win this??, its energy efficient, great looking an ease in use. My family ranges from teen to toddler – and with so many devices to charge overnight, its a simple trick that we can all identify.

  5. Fiona N says

    I love that it is energy efficient I am always trying to save on my electric bill anyway I can that makes this very appealing

  10. says

    Six people live in my home. They all have multiple devices that need to be charged. The amount of cords can be overwhelming, unsightly –and electricity isn’t free! I like that this device could help me save on my electric bill, and that I can design it around my decor. My teenagers would absolutely love that chevron print for thier room.

    I’ve been trying to figure out how to create a central charging station for all the electronics, iPads, phones, MP3 players, and this product looks like it is the solution to my problem.

  13. Lacey Burd says

    My brother & I were just discussing something like this yesterday! Every night I charge my kindle, my daughter’s kindle, my phone, iPod, and the rechargeable batteries for her Innotab. This would be so convenient for my house!
