I either have a desk full of cords and leads that connect various devices to the computer or I stuff them all into the drawer and pretend its all good!
Of course the problem is when you want to connect the camera or maybe the phone, or even the other camera or some other device to the computer to download/upload/reload/unload some files.... Then you seem to spend for ever untangling a cord, plugging it into the computer and then discovering it doesn't fit into the device!!??
I found a way to stop that happening in my computer desk drawer!
Here's what I did...
Its a variation on what I did to work out what cord was plugged into the power board behind the couch - I used the bread tags to identify which cord is which!
They are fairly loose on the cord by they don't fall off the ends as the plugs are bigger than the tags. I wrote the name on one side of the tag and drew and icon of a camera/phone/ipod on the other side with a permanent marker pen. Super easy stuff that has saved me so much hassle since I did it!
Green-ness: 5/5 for reusing something that was going into landfill!
Frugal-ness: 5/5 for not spending a cent extra!
Time cost: As long as it take to identify the cord (which can take a while I admit!)
Skill level: Being able to figure out your camera cord from your phone/s cord/s and your ipod cord!
Fun -ness: So much fun to reach into the drawer and pull out the right cord the first time!
