    I have changed plenty of outlets, but every time I did, I only had 3 or less wires. This is a brand new installation, and I have six! Two white, two black, and two ground. I think I'm doing this right, but need some validation. Please look at the picture and let me know if I am okay. I've basically connected each set of colors, and added a third extension to it, to use in the outlet.

    When you see six conductors, you are placing the receptacle at the start or middle of a string of receptacles. What you have done is fine.
