So do you have this mess? After Christmas it seemed as though cords had invaded our home! What was I going to do with them all? How would I know what goes to which electronic toy we had? Camera? Computer? Ipod? Nintendo DS? PSP? New Electronic Key chain? I bring my dilemma up to Sarah, a college student and counselor for our junior youth group. "Well, I used my label maker and made labels for mine." Of course she did! Why didn't I think of that? So off I went!
The labels were a nifty idea, thanks Sarah! Now what do i do with them? I mention this to my friend Jessica as we had dinner the other night. She said she was going to get a basket to put all of their cords in. What a great idea! Why didn't I think of that one too? know me....I have a few baskets around the house!

So, here they are, my cords neatly labeled and put into this lovely Longaberger basket! Now, if I can keep them there and organized when they are not being used. Hope this helped you!

Good idea with the labels. If you come to my house you'll see that all my cords are neatly tucked into toilet paper tubes, from every appliance on the shelf to the extra extension cords in the drawer. When one starts to tear and break, just replace it with the next emptied roll. :-)

What a great idea Glenda! I think I you have now motivated me! Maybe we should start a chain about your favorite organizational tips!
