Untangling the WIres

55,166 Views
Who does not have this problem. All the phone chargers tangled up and in a knot. How long does it take for you to untangle them? Well, I had had enough.
Time: 1 Hours Cost: $0 Difficulty: Easy
Using simple household items I decided to create an organization box for my many phone chargers. I used these three cereal boxes to create a larger box. I made cardboard squares and inserted them into each box.
And that was it, I popped my phone chargers and what not into the slots and no more mess!! Hope this will help to solve a very common problem.
There, I am finally tangle free !! If you'd like to get a detailed tutorial, please check out my blog.

    Very clever! I might go a step further and label each "box" with the name of the device that the cord goes to. I can't tell you how many cords I have that I haven't got a clue as to what they belong to!

      @Janet Weber Johnson My hubby wraps a little piece of duct tape around them to label them-writes on them first of course ;). Works awesome in this 'cordless' society. lol

    I use empty toilet paper rolls and cover them with duck tape, wind up the cord and insert them into the T.P roll. Kids can choose they're own duck tape design!

    • @Barbara Yonge I had the cords in toilet paper rolls originally but they kept on falling out and because they did not fit in properly

    I like this idea for neat storage but I'd also suggest making a tag on each cord with masking tape and labeling the device it belongs to.
