Living in a tech-filled world has its perks, but one thing we'd rather not deal with? Seeing a bunch of cords snake their way around our homes. These days, it probably seems like every outlet in your house is being used to charge something, but there isn't always room for a table on which to place these items. If you're tired of staring at phones, tablets and speakers just chillin' on your floor, you'll want the Wali Outlet Shelf. This TikTok-viral gem provides extra surface space, and it's down to $10 at Amazon — a 50% savings!
TikTok-ers — some with followings in the millions! — can't get enough of this seemingly simple yet downright brilliant invention, and for good reason. Keeping electronic devices on the floor not only makes a room look cluttered and collegiate, it also puts your tech in danger of being stepped on and damaged.
That's where the Wali comes in. For starters, it's incredibly easy to install. It comes with mounting hardware, and all you do is unscrew the existing outlet cover, replace it with the shelf, and voila! You have a new storage surface in a matter of minutes.
It also has a clean, sleek design that won't steal focus from the rest of your room's aesthetic, and its 4.3" x 5.1" platform is the perfect size for holding small electronics like your phone or Alexa. (There's a small opening for pushing cords through.) Don't be fooled by its petite appearance, though — this sturdy shelf can support up to 10 pounds of gadgetry!
Some additional uses? Place one in your kitchen or bathroom to keep your speakers and electric toothbrush from taking up precious counter space, or use it to hold up your alarm clock to save room on your nightstand. The options are truly limitless. It's also available in black or white, though the black model currently costs a few dollars more. That said, both options are a steal when you consider how much tidier they'll make your home look.
Social-media mavens aren't the only fans of the Wali Outlet Shelf — here's what some of its 5,000-plus five-star Amazon reviewers had to say:
"Such a great idea!" exclaimed an impressed customer. "I like to listen to music on my Google Home in the kitchen, but hated it on my counter. This snapped together in two seconds and sits out of the way at an outlet under the window.... Really nice quality, too.... Nice idea for charging devices without seeing them sitting on the floor."
"This is one of those things that you didn’t know you needed until after you have it," explained one happy shopper. "I have very limited counter space in my bathroom and my Google Home was just sitting on the counter, sometimes getting wet when we washed our hands.... Now with this little shelf, it is up and out of the way. It’s a very minor detail that makes a world of difference."
"This is one of those amazing space-saving products you can’t wait to tell your friends about," raved a third user. "I love listening to music while in the shower, and having my Amazon Echo there is perfect. It also frees up counter space and doesn’t hide the outlets. Installation was a breeze.... It’s extremely sturdy."
If you're ready to stop the insanity, add this little genius to your cart while you can save big. Thank you, TikTok!
