Personally, I often wish I'd been born in the 1950s because they didn't have all the gadgetry we have to contend with today. I mean, sure all the devices seem to help us, but I think it's largely stuff that we don't need to bother doing in the first place.
But I digress onto a soapbox issue of mine...
Alas, I live when I live, and technology is what it is. And I am the mother of teenage and pre-teen humans, so I either have to get on board or become irrelevant and out of touch. So I'll have the dumb phones and computers that I now have to monitor constantly because porn and pedophiles and cyber-bullying and...
I digressed again onto ANOTHER soapbox issue of mine...
ANYWAY. The cords. The cords are one of the frustrations of my life. Because when the baby is losing his ever lovin' mind because his Doggy that Talks doesn't work anymore, someone better freaking well get that sucker working or we'll never live through this night. But where is it? Heck if I know! Go look in the Box Of A Billion Cords.
Godspeed and good luck.
But now I have a system that eliminates the digging. It's a jewelry organizer. For about $10 at Wally World or Target, you can find one. And your cords will have a home where they no longer get tangled or lost. They're easy to find, quick to store, easy to label, accessible, and finding the right cord no longer requires a search party and 2 hours of your time.
Too easy! Super cheap! What could be better?
SIDE NOTE: Please note that I do not take a thousand forevers to make my cords all wrap up Pinterest-Pretty when I put them away. Ain't nobody got time for that nonsense. But you don't have to. That's why there are pockets. Shove them in a pocket and move on with your life, People. :)
