And then to add insult to injury, I usually end up pulling out the wrong plug and having to go through the procedure all over again...
I was cruising the net one day and came across this GREAT idea to quickly and easily label my cords for once and for all...
Have a look here! There are some other good ideas for cord lableing as well!
Here's what I did...
First, I had to collect these bread tags from work as we don't actually buy bread...
Then you simply write the name of the appliance on it with a permanent marker.
Then attach each clip to the RIGHT cord (Tip right there for beginners!) and drop it back behind the couch, desk or cabinet. And next time you want to pull a cord for some reason - all going to plan - you'll be able to pull the right one the first time!
How easy is that??? Good luck!
Green-ness: Repurposing what is essentially a throwaway item is as green as you can get!
Frugal-ness: Finding a use for something you already have without spending a cent - much frugalness!
Time cost: All of 30 seconds!
Skill level: Supa-dupa easy!
Fun-ness: Great fun being this organised!
