In a video posted to TikTok, the viral cleaning queen showed her 1.5 million followers how easy it is to keep your office area clear and avoid displaying cables with the $20 SMARRA box.

If the SMARRA is placed at the back of the desk the cords can be funneled behind the box and completely out of view, making for a Zen – and clutter free – space.
‘Such a great idea! Does it affect the signal in any way? I assume it ventilates the same,’ one TikTok comment read.
Others were concerned that the modem instructions specifically tell customers not to ‘block’ it in any way, but Ms McCauley’s chosen box allows for air flow.
