Tidy up Your Leads (Cords)Have you got a box full of tangled leads or electronics cords? Some, or most of them will fit inside a toilet paper roll middle so you can keep them neat and tidy. If you want to be extra organised, don't forget to label them. It is surprising how quickly and easily you can forget which is for what.

Take empty toilet tissue or paper towel cardboards and use them to store extension cords, Christmas string lights, or any cords in them. They work great.

Tired of your electrical cords getting tangled, like your curling iron hairdryer or other bathroom apparatus with a cord? Save the cardboard holders from the toilet paper tube and insert cord into empty cardboard tube place on shelf or wherever.

Someone shared with me a number of years ago that their grandma used to use the empty toilet paper roll tubes to keep her cords tidy. Wow! Really? So I decided to try it.

A recycled tissue roll is good for organizing things around the house. I used them for holding my extension wire.

This keeps it neat and clean, and looks organized. There is no need to tie it up, just insert it in the roll.

Another use for a paper towel cardboard holder is to put your appliance cords in them. Even if the cord doesn't disconnect from the appliance, it will protect the cord and keep it from getting tangled in the drawer.

I take empty toilet paper rolls and cover them with wall paper samples to make "covers" for the cords on our small appliances.

When storing those extra extension cords, just fold them several times and insert each one into an empty toilet paper roll.

Organizing electrical extension cords when not in use. Save empty TP rolls. Fold your cords in lengths of 8 inches and insert each one in an empty TP roll.
