Organization ~ All Those Electronic Cords!

Organization of  All Those Electronic Cords at Fern Smith's Classroom Ideas!
This is my exciting little purchase from Walgreens yesterday!
Sure, sure, sure, it's not Beats! But, they are mine and they were FREE! These are normally $8.99 and I had two Register Reward coupons burning a hole in my pocket, one was for $5 and the other was $1. They were on sale for $5.99, so the cashier had to adjust the $1 coupon down to 99 cents. But that's OK, 'cause they were FREE! FREE! FREE!  Now, you are probably wondering why I'm making such a big deal over cheap ear buds. 
Do you have teenagers?
Then you are nodding your head up and down right now, you get it! Sure, my teens, ask me for permission, sure, my teens, say they can't find theirs...you know the REALLY expensive ones SANTA CLAUS bought {still waiting to be reimbursed there Santa...} 
sure, my teens, say they will return them! 
Ha!  Ha!  Ha! You know they don't! :)
Since I don't use them all the time, I forget, then a few weeks later when I want them back....kiss those bad boys goodbye! 
We've gone out of town a few times now and I can't find anything! Phone cords for the car, Zune cords, etc. etc. etc.
I'm telling ya' DRIVES.ME.CRAZY!
I love organization, I also love surviving the end of the school year. You know what I mean, I was in survival mode!So now it is summer and I finally came up with a plan. Instead of baskets and things being stored in my office, all of my cords are in my closet, my bedroom closet. That way I KNOW when someone comes in to BORROW something! :)

I took a simple, old bulletin board and added black paper and thumb tacks. I could have made it fancy, I could have use scrapbooking paper, but I was just happy to find all my cords!

 I hung it up in my closet, right when you walk in!
It's not much, it is not really Pin-worthy, but it makes me so happy!


I would just ♥love it if 
you would follow me!

  2. Oh Fern, this post had me laughing and I don't even have kids! (Although, if I did, I might consider getting a lock on that closet door!) :)
    And I pinned it for you--because it's a good idea AND because I just adore you!
    Happy summer, Friend...
