It’s time to take control of your TVs, DVDs, PVRs, iPhone docks, stereos, game controls, candles and VHS remotes. It should take 15 to 45 minutes depending on the number of remotes and your organizing prowess.

1. Start by collecting them all together

2. Identify what they control

3. Recycle remotes that you no longer use

4. If you are unsure of it's use – label "mystery remotes" and stow away

5. Wipe down the remotes with a sanitary wipe

6. Label frequently used remotes ie "Living room TV"

7. Create and agree on an attractive convenient home

8. Consider a universal control to manage many devices in one - see below

Universal Remote Tips

  • Most devices have a code (in the instructions or online) you assign on the universal remote to set it up. It should only take a few minutes.

  • Check to see if your universal device can “learn” the code by aiming the sensor towards the unit.

  • Even better some support audio instruction.

  • Ask your teenager to figure it out.
