Legacy Technology Drawer

Keep Old Technology together

As technology continues to advance at a rapid pace, it's no surprise that we accumulate old gadgets and cables that we no longer use. However, throwing them away doesn't always seem like the best option. That's where the "Legacy" drawer comes in - a designated space to store these items that we may need to use again in the future.

Convenience and Accessibility

Having a Legacy drawer can be incredibly convenient and accessible. Instead of having to dig through boxes in the basement or cluttered drawers in search of a specific cable, you can go to your designated drawer and find what you need quickly. This can save you valuable time and frustration when using a particular device or accessory.

Legacy vs Old Technology

There is a difference between legacy vs Old technology. Legacy items are things you may use in the future - for example, a previous generation iPhone - perhaps you want music or photos still on the device. Old Technology is items that are 5+ years old and overlap with other technology. An example of Old Technology would be SCSI printer cables.

Technology from the past may have been great when it was released, but it is likely to be outdated for current use. Legacy items may be held onto for sentimental reasons or for access to past information. Identifying which items fall under the legacy and old technology categories can help you decide which items to keep and which to discard.

Organization and Decluttering

Having a Legacy drawer can also help with organization and decluttering. Instead of having these items scattered throughout the house, they are all in one place. This can help reduce visual clutter and make your living space feel cleaner and more organized. Plus, you'll know exactly where to find things when you need them.


Overall, having a Legacy drawer is a practical and responsible choice for any home. It can save you time and frustration, reduce your environmental impact, and help with organization and decluttering. So the next time you come across an old cable or device, don't immediately throw it away - consider storing it in your Legacy drawer instead.
