Cords: We can’t live without them, they literally connect us to EVERYTHING; but they practically take over any small space packed with electronics like a wild ivy, or even worse, like a squatter roommate that you only let stay with you because they are friends with your crush. Well, we might not be able to solve all your problems (yet) here at Sexy Upcycling but with our 10 Second Upcycling Tip, we think we can help you with the cords.. 🙂
We’re always on the go, so our laptop station (for right now) looks a little like this:
But with a little bit of magic, and by magic I mean these fine little dittys which you might know as bag tags, you can work WONDERS on keeping your cord overloaded area fresh and tidy!
There are many different sized Bread Bag Tags, so chose a larger one with a larger hole for a thicker cord, and use the thinner ones for iPod charger cords or headphone cords! This is especially helpful when I throw my earbuds in my purse and the cord wants to wrap itself all around my wallet and lipgloss. No more tugging when you use the tags, my ear buds stay put and don’t cause any trouble!
And if you find that you still have messy cords under your desk, do what I do and use them to label the plugs on your power strip. It makes just about ZERO sense why companies choose either black or white for their plugs making all of them look the same, but with the assortment of colors and sizes that these Bread Bag Tags come in, all you have to do is clip them on, even write what the plug goes to and before you know it, you have yourself some Sexy Upcycled Cord Organizer Labels and best yet, no more guesswork when it comes to the power strip!
