Organizing Extension Cords and Other Wires

I bought a 50 cent tin to match the decor of the room and cut a square hole in the back. We pushed all the phone cord and extra computer line through, hooked it all up, put the lid on the tin and now all the mess is "contained". I do have to dust the tin once a while.This looks great and could be done in any room or even on the floor.

If you're using a metal tin, be sure to cover or smooth the edges to avoid fraying or even cutting those cords!

I use the inserts from paper towels and toilet tissue. Roll or loop cords the length of the cardboard roll, insert into the cardboard roll with the plug in tail just the length you need to reach the plug.

You can paint or paper the rolls to match the floors or carpet. As Kurtzfolk said, just dust as needed. All for no cost!
