Tips for Organizing Your Hearing Technology

organizing your hearing technology
With hearing loss part of your daily routine, here are some tips on organizing your hearing technology to make life a little easier!

6 Tips to Organizing Your Hearing Technology

1. Home Storage

Instead of having all your gadgets scattered around the home, how about finding a dedicated storage box to keep everything safe in an easily accessible place?

I keep all my hearing aid technology, travel kits, repair box, and chargers in a basket in my bedroom. Storing everything in a secure, cool, dry place keeps them in their best condition.

2. Cool Storage Ideas

Fellow Phonak hEAROs Mia, Emmy and Lana and Meag have shared these cool photos of their storage solutions:

I wanted to show you the way I keep Abe and Willa Rue’s hearing technology organized. My husband and I like to be organized (especially having two kids with hearing equipment), and the way we were charging their stuff every night was driving me crazy- so many cords!! In true awesome husband fashion, he made me this box, yes- he is the best! I also wanted to show this tackle box that we bought from Academy to keep other supplies organized and handy- we keep this box in a closet, because we do not use it all the time. Before Willa got CIs, I searched the internet trying to find good organization methods, so I thought I would share our way! #organization #cochlearimplant #hearingaids #deafkidsrock #dadsofdeafkidsrock

3. Hearing Aid Care Kit

I find it super handy having a little box with all the essential hearing aid repair and care items.

It’s a perfect place to keep little items, as well as spare batteries, tubing, filters, hooks, and everything else needed to take care of your technology.

4. Out and About

I’m always traveling or out and about to places, especially for work. I love having little pouches handy to put smaller technology in so they don’t get lost in my bag.

5. Cables and Ties

There’s nothing worse than wanting to charge something up and not knowing which charger cable belongs to which technology. I like using sandwich bag ties or mini seal bags to keep cables together, and labeling them with stickers so it’s easy to tell what belongs where.

For headphones and travel items, little pouches are useful. A mini headphone tie can also keep those wires from getting tangled.

6. All Things Creative

For the latest hearing aid decor, why not keep stickers in an envelope and any decorative tape or bits and bobs in a box? This would be a quick and accessible place for when you’ve got a spare five minutes to jazz up your technology.

Organization doesn’t have to be boring. Be as creative as you like! Why not have a look on Pinterest for some ideas?
