DIY Upcycled Charger and Cord Organizer

DIY Upcycled cord and storage organizer

In the past few years, I’ve accumulated numerous cords and chargers, as I’m sure many of you have. I used to store them in a basket, but that got messy quickly. Every time I wanted one I’d have to untangle several. That’s obviously not an effective storage solution.

I decided to upcycle a cardboard box and some toilet paper rolls to design a better option. So far, it seems to be working pretty well. I haven’t had to untangle anything, which is just wonderful.

Want to try it? You only need a few supplies to get started. If you do any amount of crafting you probably have most of them already.

**Add glue to that list if you’ve chose to work with scrapbook paper instead of decorative tape.

Fill your rolls with chargers and cords, set the rolls upright in the box and you’re done! Storage made easy. Now you don’t have to untangle anything! Very exciting.
