Finding Accord in Organization
It turns out that an empty sun glass case (like the one that wasn’t holding my glasses) is the perfect vessel for keeping small cords untangled inside a messenger bag or purse.
If you remember our post on the science behind tangled cords, you know that restricting movement is a great way to prevent messy tangles in your cables and cords. While you can spend a little cash to buy a manufactured cord wrap or case, using something you already own is always a great option. It’s an especially handy tip if you’re already out and about, and looking for a place to stash tangle-prone cords.
But your easy, re-purposed cord case doesn’t have to be a sun glass case. Use whatever you have around the house or on-hand while on your travels. Here are some other common low- or no-cost vessels for carting your cords around for travel or every day:
- a makeup bag
- a pencil case
- an Altoids tin
- resealable plastic baggies
- jars, like mason jars or rinsed and dried pickle jars
- an empty CD-spindle case
- a cord organizer (like below)
