Electronic devices are awesome, but what’s not awesome is keeping track of all those dang charging cords! Some companies have gotten better at having the name of the company on the cord itself (thanks, Kodak!), but when every charging cord has a USB side and a wall charging side, it’s sometimes hard to keep track of what’s what.
That is, until you run out of toilet paper.
Here’s an easy way to keep cords labeled and untangled so they’re easy to find and use. All you need is a toilet paper roll, some scrapbook paper, and a glue gun.
- Toilet Paper Roll
- Scrapbook paper
- Glue Gun
1. Gather your materials.
2. Lay the toilet paper roll on the scrapbook paper, pretty side down, and measure where the paper needs to be cut by making a small mark with your pen on the paper on either side of the toilet paper roll. Cut the paper and set extra paper aside.
3. Glue paper to toilet paper roll and add ribbon, if desired.
4. On the scrap paper you set aside, write what the cord storage will be holding. In my case, it’s my cell phone charger. I just used the other side of this scrapbook paper, which was double sided, but you can use whatever you’d like.
5. Place your cords inside and store away!
I’ve done this for all my chargers now, as well as my extension cords. It’s also a great way to use up leftover paper scraps that are too small for anything else.
