If you had a penny for every time you lost the remote, or multiple remotes, to your television, DVD player, TiVo, etc., you'd probably have enough money to purchase a remote coffee table. This type of coffee table looks fashionable, and it can eliminate the need to organize a search party the next time one of your remote controllers goes missing.
A Remote-Friendly Coffee Table
What makes a remote coffee table ideal to store all of the different gadgets that go to your electronics? First it must have either a shelf, multiple shelves, a drawer or multiple drawers so you can ensure that the remotes are put back in the same spot every time. After purchasing your new coffee table there will be no need to dig into the cushions, look under the sofa, or wonder if the dog ate your remotes. Each remote will have a designated spot in the new coffee table.
