Most homes are filled with electric and electronic items, which means they're also filled with cords: cords to the computers, cords to the A/V system, power cords for your plug-in devices and charging cords for your cordless devices. Getting them organized goes a long way toward keeping your house neat. For small cords, wrap them with colorful Velcro straps, like the Velcro Brand One-Wrap Cable Ties. You can also clip them with hand-decorated clothespins. For larger power cords, glue decorative paper to empty toilet paper rolls and slide the coiled cord inside. For power bars or large nests of cords, place a decorative box on the floor. Stack the cords (or place the power bar) inside and cut slots in the side for the cords to feed through. Replace the lid and you're finished!
You can buy your own handy Velcro straps in a variety of colors. Pro tip: get more than you think you'll need, as you'll likely keep finding uses for them.
