PVC Hack: Get Your Bungee Cords in Order

My husband, Bill, is always using elastic cords to secure one thing or another in the back of his pickup truck. One day, the frustration of untangling and unhooking individual cords from the “bird’s nest” finally reached critical mass and he decided to do something about it. Now he hooks the ends of the cords over a PVC pipe for easy storage and access. He cut the pipe a little longer than the longest cord length and drilled holes at 1-in. intervals for the shorter ones. (His blood pressure has dropped 20 points.) — Melody Morse
