Organize electronics chargers with toilet paper rolls
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).
