I’m addicted to Pinterest (shameless plug: follow my boards here or you can follow Mod City Mag’s boards here) and I am constantly coming across genius ideas whether it’s diy, recipes, fashion or products. The last couple days I have noticed a great idea that is getting repinned over and over… it’s a wall outlet cover that has usb ports built into it. I think this is just an amazing product that I wish I had thought of myself! If you are a proud owner of an iphone, ipod or ipad this is definitely something that can get you excited too!
Curious to know more I started my search for usb outlets and these are my favorite that I came across!
