I was wondering the cheapest way to organize my pedals and power them with out using batteries.

It seems that powered pedal boards can get pricey.

Buy a decent board big enough (or build your own, plenty of threads on how to do it).
Then buy a OneSpot (If on a small budget) and a daisy chain. There's your power.

If not on a budget; consider the Voodoo Labs PedalPower2+

i find that all i need is a my onespot and daisy chain. i dont have my pedals on anything (other than the floor that is) cause i am constantly rearranging their order. so basicly all you need is about $30-40 worth of stuff:
one spot
daisy chain and adapters
surge protector (i highly recomend using one, cause it doubles as an extension chord and can save you from funny plugs at gigs)

then if you really want them on something, get a sheet of plywood and paint it. then you can get some velcro and use that to attach your pedals to the board. or some of those zip-tie things, ive seen people use those as well.

OneSpot for your powering...not much at all, get the value pack.

Depending on how many pedals you have, build your own, get a PedalTote, or look at the ones under 100 bucks. Deffinately get an unpowered one, and get a 1spot.

I also have a BCB-60. It is great, but only fits Boss Pedals unlessyou cut the styrofoam.

I got the $40 "CNB PDC-410E Pedal Case-Large-EX Wide" and love it...

they may not hold up to someone standing on the case or weight of cases ontop of this product because the case isnt made of thick wood but it really keeps the pedals safe and neat.
just run a power strip and a chain cord with a Boss PSA power pack for all the 9V pedals.
for pedals that require their own power packs just run them on the power strip

just don't use the included Velcro because the glue doesn't stay on the pedals...get some good stuff like 3M brand
