Cable Organization

If your family is anything like mine, then then there is a never-ending influx of new electronic gadgets.  It seems that each of these gadgets always comes with at least one cable (a charger and maybe a connector).  Until yesterday, we did not have any cable organization to speak of…that is unless you count my bottom desk drawer with a big, tangled mess of cords.  I could not take one more day of ‘cable madness’ so I created a new cable organization system in our office:

Simple Cable and Cord Organization by The Sweet Spot Blog

I purchased this over-the-door shoe organizer at Ikea for around $6.  I hung it on the back of the closet door in my office with Command hooks from the Home Depot.  (Note: I did not use the over-the-door hooks that came with the shoe organizer  because I was worried that it would damage the top of the door.)  Next I placed one cable/adapter/connector in each of the shoe slots.  Finally I labeled each with my label maker for quick recognition.  This system works so well that it left my husband and I wondering what we would argue about now…?

    Great innovation to solve a common problem! Luckily, my husband is an engineer and very organized so I just let him deal with those types of things, lol! Those shoe organizers do come in handy for a lot of things! Mmm, just saw the link to your recipe for turkey-potato patties and am off to check that out!

    That is a great idea. We are always misplacing our cords.

    And what’s worse, they all look the same! It seems that I have to try 2 or 3 before I find the right one.

    Great minds think alike! I just found a little “doohickey” in the Target bargain area to organize the cables on my kitchen counter and I was going to blog about it tomorrow!
