Electrical Wire to Wrangle Cords

Before putting your extension cords in a drawer or storage bin, keep them wound neatly with a piece of electrical wire. Keep the wire on one end of the cord

Before putting your extension cords in a drawer or storage bin, keep them wound neatly with a piece of electrical wire. For an additional organization feature, first wrap the wire several times around either end of the cord. Then the wire will stay with the cord, even when you’re using it, and you’ll have a tie at-the-ready when it’s time to put the cord back into storage.

Be sure to cut a piece of wire long enough to wrap around one end of the extension cord several times as well as to wrap around the whole cord once it’s organized into a neat loop.
