My scenario is that I have a receptacle that currently feeds to bedroom lights, which is the end of the series on the circuit. I would have to fish the wire a good distance from the light switch and would not be ideal.
Option 1: Would it be appropriate to pigtail like below? Pretend that last outlet is a light switch.
Option 2: The incoming power to the receptacle in the diagram goes through unfinished basement area. I could do a junction box and splice there.
Option 3: I can't think of what they are called, but I could use a new receptacle that has the ability to feed multiple receptacles with a bar with push in, or something like that. I am not talking about the scary stab ins. I would replace the first receptacle with this new one.
