How do you keep your cables and cords neat and tidy?

First, a confession.

If there is one thing that sends me over the edge, it’s having a jumble of tangled cables/ cords.

Cell phone charger, kindle charger, camera cords, etc.

I used to fold my cords neatly and wrap with an elastic band which works beautifully but takes a couple of seconds longer.

Until I figured this out.

Do you hear the birds chirping? The world is a happy place once again.

This is my Kindle cord and I currently use these binder/ bulldog clips for everything in sight.

I simply use smaller ones for thinner cords and bigger ones for the thicker ones.

I love cheap, easy organising solutions. Don’t you?

How do you keep your cables and cords neat and tidy? Do the messy ones bother you too?


P.S. Don’t forget to add your organising question to the list.

Guest blogger announcement and ribbon organising

First off, thank you to everybody who applied to be guest bloggers. I loved reading your stories.

I want to do these types of things every four months or so, so if I forget, please remind me!

Speaking of reminding, please send me your organised spaces (big and small) so I can post them to inspire the rest of us. And you’ll get a blog button to put on your sidebar to show off a little 🙂

I’m so pleased to finally announce my two guest bloggers who are going to be blogging their Simplify your Life journeys.

I’ll introduce them properly next week, but for now, Chloe is from France and Samantha is from Australia.

Don’t you love the internet??? Connecting all of us who want to get or be more organised.

I love it!


Today I want to show you a quick, easy and VERY cheap way to organise ribbon.

This is not my idea; I, too, was inspired one day while internet browsing and saw this on one of the crafty blogs.

This little plastic basket has handles that lay flat so you can easily carry it to different areas of your home to do your ribbon-ing 🙂

And just to prove that organising doesn’t have to be expensive, I bought it at my local Plastic Warehouse for R8,95 ($1,30).

For some reason my pics are not showing – here is the URL if you can’t see it

I stuck all the roles on a cigarette holder I had laying around from a costume party, carefully positioned it through the opposite ends of the basket and voila! Done.

Now I can simply pull the ribbon and cut whatever I need – love it!
