Chord Organizer

     Have you noticed that as the number of electronic gadgets we have increases so does the amount of charging chords and accessories? If so, you are going to love this crafty storage solution. In our home it was becoming more and more difficult to find a central location to store all of these items. For a while I tried to keep them in a cute basket on our kitchen counter, but they would often become a tangled mess, and as the number of chords increased, the basket was soon overflowing. I was talking to a friend who said a college friend of hers came up with a simple solution to handle the ever increasing amount of chargers and accessories in her home. She used an over the door shoe holder. Ingenious! I purchased a very basic shoe holder at Walmart and hung it on the back of  the door inside our coat closet. I was initially going to label the pockets with a marker, but didn't like the idea that it wouldn't be possible to neatly change the labeling in the future. So, I was going to tape paper labels on the pocket or use stickers. However, while shopping for chalkboard paint for another project, I came across chalkboard labels in a set that also included a fine tip chalk marker!
This was a perfect solution. The marker would allow me to label each holder, but unlike chalk it wouldn't rub off easily. If necessary, the chalk marker  could be removed using an ammonia based cleaner like Windex. I loved that it would allow me the opportunity to change the labeling as needed in the future. Organization issue solved.
