MacBook Pro 15" with 4x USB c

Hi Guys,
I did get a new MacBook Pro at work, it comes with 4x USBc's, even power supply has USBc socket so no more compatible with my older Mac's.
Did anyone managed to come up with an easy workable solution?
I would need HDMI, SD card reader and number of USB2/3 ports.
Whatever I could find online is expensive and bulky.
What about wireless hub , does it exist?
kind regards

You are in "dongle hell."

For USB 2.0/3.0 devices, you can use a cheap adapter for USB-A (Female) to USB-C (male). Something like this:

If you already have a USB card reader, it'll work with that adapter, too. Otherwise, I'd say just pick up a new one that's already USB-C.

There are a number of USB-C to HDMI adapters on Amazon.

Unfortunately until you've replaced all your peripherals with USB-C versions, you're going to need this extra hardware to use your old ones. I wouldn't expect to find any wireless hubs because they'd be too slow and unreliable.

Beware the multi-port hubs on the market. Most of them are garbage. The good ones cost a lot. This may be the USB-C hub we've been waiting for - The Verge

The Arc Hub may be good but I don't particularly care for the round design. It's ultimately going to take up a lot of desk real estate just the way the cables have to run. It looks like a big Alaskan crab!
