Bread tabs and binder clip recycling

Posted on August 1, 2012 at 6:30 PM

So today I had to look for my cell phone recharger cord again and it took me all of 20 minutes to find it. What a waste of time! I decided to see if there was some way that I could keep it in view without it getting all tangled up and damaged. My brain registered that bread tabs (which I've been keeping in a jar until I could find a use for them) and binder clips (bought a dozen for $1. at a charity store) would merge beautifully. Because it worked so well, I added a couple of more clips to hold my other recharging cords.

All I did was attach the binder clips to my desk and slip the cords through. The bread tabs keep the cords from slipping out and I guess I could label each cord. Since I only have three so far, I haven't bothered (also, I don't have any felt pens handy!!). Not terribly original but neat, no??

By the way, I'm thrilled to be by nominated for inclusion on a list of the 100 best green living blogs by Environmental Science Yay!!

This is one of the best ideas I've seen yet... and I've tried many! Simple, easy and made with materials right on hand. Thank you so much - you made my day, and my night - when I'm fumbling most to cords to plug in!
