I have a love hate relationship with power cords and cables. I love them for the obvious reasons, but I don’t like when I have to go through them to find the right one. Don’t get me started on the “mystery box” I have. You know the box, right? That’s full of mystery cords all tangled together, that nobody knows or remembers what item it is for and nobody wants to throw them out just in case??…. Cricket…cricket!! Or is that just me and my family?
I wanted to avoid another mystery box situation. So out came my trusted label printer and off we went, pairing each cable to an electric device. Once I got a match, I printed out a label stating what it went to.
Now when I go look for a cord or charger, I just have to look at the label. It makes things a lot easier and now I have one less mystery box off my hands!
How do you organize your cords? Do you have a mystery box full of them too?
