Maureen has discovered the antidote to the Scary Drawer O'Random Chargers!
My past attempts to keep charger cords tidy were to wrap them up and use a twist tie to keep them together. But if I have to stretch the cord out to charge my device, I don't always take the time to recoil it, and then the drawer where I keep the cords turns into a tangled nest of wires. Plus, there are so many chargers, it's hard to quickly find which one I want.
Enter: toilet paper tubes! It's faster to coil up a cord and stuff it in a tube than to twist tie it. The tubes keep the chargers separated, and I can write on the tube which device the charger goes to. Have a look:
TAAAA-DAAAHHHHH! Maureen, are you hearing the thunderous applause?
What can I say? This is a perfect hack.
I do have another method for organizing chargers and small electronics, courtesy of my dear friend and primo professional organizer Nadine Levy of Management 180: the handy-dandy over-the-door shoe pocket organizer. Store one electronic device and its associated charger in each pocket (labeled, if you like).
