Before I finally finished this ‘project’, we stored all our cables and cords in a huge glass jar. Guess how soothing it was, trying to find a specific cable from the bottom of the jar? So, since I didn’t want to pop a Xanax every time I needed a USB-cable, I needed a better storage idea. Here it is! It’s really easy, costs nothing, takes 10 minutes to make and is a great storage idea.
– Empty toilet paper rolls
– Foil (or wrapping paper, duct tape – whatever you like, really) to make the rolls look all purdy and shiny!
– A glue gun (a stapler would probably work just as well)
– A plastic container, shoe box, cookie jar… whatever you can find!
1. Take your rolls and foil // 2. Wrap the foil around the roll. I needed two pieces of foil to cover one roll. // 3. This is what they should look like once you’re done
To make your cable storage rolls a bit more stable (this kind of loses its purpose if the rolls are knocked over and scattered all across the bottom of your little box), glue them together. When you place the cables inside the rolls, leave both ends out so you can easily find the one you need 🙂
