WFMW 9 ~ neat extension cords


Behold the lowly empty toilet paper tube. I use it keep my extension cords neat and tidy when I'm not using them. Just fold up the cord, slip the tube over top and it holds it neat and together until you need it.

I'm providing a link to last week's WFMW. My link at Shannon's didn't work and I really liked the tip. So for those who missed it and would like it, it was a daily chart to pray for your children for character traits. So here's the link if you're interested.

Well how clever is that? All those cords stuffed in a drawer. What a simple solution.

Great idea! I would've never thought of that! I have tagged you for a weird meme at my funny blog! Check it out!

I've always used rubberbands, which quite frankly didn't really work-so-much-for-me. This sounds much better!

Shalee said...

Brilliant! (Now why didn't I think of that?)

Carol said...

You're smarter than me. I thought I was all clever 'cause I do something similar with Christmas lights and wrapping paper rolls. But I can't apply the same concept to extension chords and toilet paper rolls? Color me slow, but I'm on it now!

Yet another great time, Suzanne! Thanks for sharing!

Thanks also for your comment on my WFMW (alternate use for a pot rack) post. I appreciate you stopping by!

Love it love it! You can even have your children decorate them!

Dianne said...

Now that is one useful tip! I can't stand messy cords! Thanks!

Gina said...
