DIY Cord Organizer - Organize electronics chargers in one simple step with this easy organizing idea! #organization #electronicsorganizer #cordorganizer #cordstorage #chargerstorage

I don’t know about you, but we have a lot of electronics…cameras, phones, bluetooth speakers, headphones, not to mention battery packs and other miscellaneous items.  While I love all my toys, I was starting to get frustrated with one thing.  The box where I stored cords was just one big, unorganized mess. I was tired of digging through it every time I needed something.

The DIY cord organizer that I came up with is so simple that I’m not sure why I didn’t think of it sooner.  Here’s the cheap and easy solution that has saved me from pulling my hair out!

Easy DIY Cord Organizer

This electronics accessories box was pretty horrible, right?  I took everything out, untangled it, figured out what it belonged with (a task in itself) and if I was still using it.  I had several phone chargers for phones from the dark ages.  Once that was all sorted out, I labeled sandwich bags with a marker and matched everything up.

The bags were arranged so that cords used most often were near the front while, lesser used ones were in the back.  You can also do it alphabetically, by size or any way that works best for you. It was a gazillion times better!

I just wish it hadn’t take me so long to figure this out. It was so easy (and cheap!).

What is driving you crazy in your life that needs to be organized…junk drawer, closet, pantry?  Any simple solutions for the rest of us?

Let’s be friends!
