Clean Up Your Desk With an Electronic Cord Organizer 6


Clean Up Your Desk With an Electronic Cord Organizer

I saw this idea on Pinterest and thought it would be a great one for my home.  Now I know it’s not necessarily a “craft” per se, but how many of us have those toilet tissue and paper towel rolls laying around for when we need them for crafts, and always end up having too many?  Well, I saw this and decided to use some of those up, plus clean up around the house at the same time!! 

How many of us have millions of cords laying around becoming a complete mess?  It always seems like the remote controls that are all over that you have no clue what some of them go to.  Well here’s a great way to organize, clean up and make them easier to find.  You could personalize this by adding wrapping paper around the box first, or adding paper clips with the names of what they go for like seedling recognition pieces, etc.  Whatever you do with it is up to you.  I just pray that it helps clean some stuff up around the house and make you stop plugging in 10 cords to one gadget to see if it fits!! 😛  Enjoy!!


Materials Needed:
  • Old toilet tissue/paper towel cardboard rolls
  • Cardboard Box (Size depends on how many you have)
  • Extra Piece of Cardboard
  • Tape (if needed)
  • Labels (if you’re going to use)
  • & Time!!

Get all of the necessary materials together with whatever size box you desire and the number of rolls to fit either all of the box, or only some of it.cord

Insert the rolls to fit tightly (without creasing) and fill it as much as you’d like.  I decided to leave a bit of space for large cords, plugs, etc.

If using, insert your folded piece of extra cardboard and secure it at the bottom.  This will keep the rolls for moving around and offer more room for larger cords, etc.
Insert your cords, wires and whatever else you need to tidy up around the house. Now you won’t have any trouble finding the one you need and also not worry about how they usually become tangled.  Will you use this at home?  If so, leave a comment as to where you’ll use it and how it will help.  Thanks for visiting and I hope you like it!!

Very handy! You could cover it with contact paper too to dress it up a bit!

Would have done that if I had time. 🙁 Figured it would be in my closet, so didn’t matter what it looked like ha/ha
