I told my husband that we needed to purchase a reel to keep the cord on. A reel makes it easier to store the cord and keeps it from getting tangled up. The idea popped into my head to use a milk jug so I gave it a try and it works.
I cut out a section opposite the handle to make some sides to hold the cord. Holding the jug by the handle, I wrapped the cord around the jug. This works, however, I think a heavier jug will work even better. I may not have to spend money on a reel after all.

As I thought, a heavier plastic works much better. I made one using a Clorox jug and cut smaller slots on two sides.
Get yourself a battery powered leaf blower it should hold enough for to use a couple of times.
That is brilliant! Thanks!
