Tame cord madness with washi tape.

Cord Identification with Washi Tape – Charge cords have to be one of my biggest pet peeves. As I’ve mentioned before, I’m a tech toy junkie and with all those devices comes a myriad of charging cords in various shapes, sizes and colours.  They drive me absolutely batty!  Seriously, how is it that no one has come up with a universal cord and charger for all electronic devices?

Since I have so many of these cords, and require them all on a somewhat regular basis, I thought I should come up with some sort of identification program because many of them look similar.  This is where washi tape comes in.  Oh, how I love washi tape. Such fun colours and designs and great for so many things.

Simply cut off a length of washi tape, wrap around the cord, trim the end and use a sharpie to write the name of the device on the tape. I keep all my cords together in a basket on my desk and now it’s easy to quickly pick out the exact cord I need right away.

    Excellent idea, because it is true that we get confused with all these cords 😉
