Are you a gadget lover? Well, who is not? At least that is what it seems when I look at all the people around me including my nine year old nephew. I am not a gadget freak as such (loving my Macbook, ipod, mobile doesn't count right!) In fact, I am a bit tech challenged for that matter but my dear husband is a big time lover of gadgets and gizmos. His innumerable gadgets and corresponding cables along with his computer and mobile phone chargers, various data cables and cords drive me nuts when I attempt to organize his study room.
So my life was trapped in cords until I read a post IHeart Organizing: Quick Tip: Keeper of the Cords on one of the blogs I follow for inspiration's sake. And I learned how toilet tissue rolls can help you organize the cord chaos in our lives :) :)
I was in a DIY mood today (a rare thing) and was itching to make something before the day ended and luckily enough that coincided with our toilet paper getting over. So I took out my craft box and decided to trap the cords.
I re-read the savior blogpost but also decided to add my bit. I decided to use cloth instead of paper (as shown in the blogpost) to wrap the toilet roll and I needed a small piece of leftover cloth from my some other DIY madness.
So here is the 'Before' picture of my Macbook charger, toilet roll, piece of cloth and fabric glue.
It took me less than ten minutes to give the roll a make over. Now my charger fits neatly into the roll. Here is the 'After' picture of the trapped cord.
I will needs tons of toilet paper rolls to trap the countless cords that need to be organized in our house but I am happy for now having trapped the cord of my computer charger.
