Keeping Track of AC Adapters

All of my AC adapters are black and all belong to different items. I purchased a white permanent marker and wrote on each one (i.e. cell phone). Then I used Velcro strips to secure the cords and store them all in a storage container that I got at a yard sale. They're on my list each time I go to get one. Big money saver. Now, I'm not guessing which goes to what, they're organized in one place and in a Thrifty container.

This is an excellent idea. I have many AC adapters and such that will be taken care of now! Thanks so much for sharing this tip!

I use white liquid correction fluid (NOT water based type) to mark most things like VCR tapes, adapter cords, anything (especially) with a dark surface. Another great marker/identifier is RED nail polish.

Good thinking, not just complaining but actually coming up with a creative solution.

Where did you get a white permanent marker? I've never seen one and would love to have one as I'll be moving soon and will need to mark all my cords.

This is a great idea. Since I have never seen a white magic marker, I have been using thick paper key marking tags with strings attached to label my cords. I then keep my adapters in a large plastic container, but a shoe box would do nicely.

sorry for not replying sooner.I have several online craft stores I frequent.The white markers(3 diff.sizes)I think came from either factorydirect.com or sunshinecrafts.com. I'll try and check.There were 3,a fine,medium and bold.

I have a labeler as soon as I get a new toy I label it and keep all my adapters in a shoe box .

White-out works really well as a permanent marker-no need to buy another product. Also, a dot of nailpolish matching color to color works really well.
