....How I Contain Those Unruly Electronic Cords That I Carry Around In My Computer Bag....
These are just a few of the cords I get to carry in my computer bag. They get so messy and out of control. So, I addressed the problem with them today.
I wanted a container that I could see through and that would be mailable and thin enough to fit comfortably in my computer bag. I also did not want to keep each cord in it's own container.
First, I thought about what I had available:
- Plastic Zip bag
- rubber bands (or in this case, narrow cut section from a bicycle tube)
Second, I coiled up the cords and put a band around them.
Third, I put them in the plastic bag.
And then stuck the bag in my computer bag.
It fit just like I wanted.
Oh, man, this one is so Easy-Peasy that I can't believe I left it a mess for so long. The only thing left to do to make this that much better would be to label each cord for easy retrieval.
I guess we will see if I get that final step done!
