8 Ways to Organize: Electronic Wise

Electronics are all a necessity to us, right? I mean we communicate, share news, learn things, and so much more! But then there’s the cords, and the plugs, and the disks, and the headphones—all that electronic-savvy mumbo jumbo that we don’t need to get into. And on the bright side—all that mumbo jumbo gets tangled up and ruined! No, I was just kidding. That doesn’t always happen. I’m serious, chill. But you know what I mean. Taking care of electronics can be hard, but it can be easy too! Now here’s the fun part:

I’ve got 8 Ways to Organize, right here. So sit back, relax, and have your electronics close to you, cause you may want to start organizing while your reading this! JK-ing again.
8 Ways to Organize: Electronic Wise (Hey, it rhymes!)
Wrap your cords so they don’t get tangled And the best way to do this? Ta-da! Yes, it’s magnificent, it’s creative, it’s the most original idea on Earth—zip ties! You never would have guessed, right? Or some fancy schmancy things I like to call... twist ties! They’re extremely expensive and very hard to find though. Just kidding again! Wow, what’s wrong with me today? All these lame jokes are probably really getting to you. But zip or twist ties are both cheap and easy to find. You can usually find them any place. But if you wanna get real scientific, look at an office store.

Make a special container to keep your earbuds Well, what do you know? I have an easy-peasy-lemon-squeezy craft idea exactly for that right here! Having a small place that you recognize is for that item, really helps you remember to put it back and KEEPS THEM UNTANGLED! How great is that?
Fold your cords of certain electronics Do you know the right way to fold your electronic cords together? Well, do you? Well if you don’t (let’s pretend that you don’t), put the two ends together, and keep folding together. Yep, it’s that easy. Don’t sweat it, you’ve still got 5 more tips to go! (squeal!)

Get a case Yes. I know this not the most original idea out there, but it helps. There are cases for everything! Laptops, iPods, iPads, handheld game devices, phones—you get the idea. And guess what? There is even cases for your electronic accessories. Cases to keep your cords and plugs, cases for your headphones—I could go on and on but you get the picture. And... you wanna know the next cool thing? There is even cases to keep your cases in? Wow, aren’t we creative. But, the point is, cases keep your items concealed and protected. Oh, and did I mention adorable?
Put certain things together This may be a little confusing, so let me explain. I mean if you have certain items and their accessories, put them all in one container. Yep, that’s right, you’re not hallucinating. I mean go out and buy some of those drawer dividers and arrange them in your desk drawer. Make sure only electronic-related items get put in there. Keep a designed divided area for each different item—for example: iPod related stuff; supplies for cleaning electronics; all of your headphones; batteries; chargers—and keep those items in their places. Then you’ll get used to reaching there when you’re looking for something and putting it back when your done.  
Get rid of those cases, get modern! You know how DVDs get lost or scratched because sometimes their cases are being used for something else or were misplaced? Well, try this. Recycle all those trashy cases and buy a DVD album. That’s right! There are some pretty cute ones out there too. Keep all your DVDs in there. Or, if you’re the tech-savvy-kind, load all of your movies and CDs onto a computer and don’t deal with any mess. This is easy and a good way to get rid of unwanted clutter.

Put everything together! Want to forget the cases, forget the dividers, and forget having separate places for everything? Then this is your dream come true! Get one of those large storage boxes from any store and throw all of your junk in it! That’s it! Just be warned that you’ll have to fish out your items any time you’re looking for them!
Charge it up Sorry, I stole this one from a little birdie. Shh... Okay, your family is all charging their devices in different areas, which is a recipe for disaster. If everyone had some idea where they last saw the device, there would be no problem, right? So get a charging station or dock. This will be so much simpler for the family, and, you could station it at the home computer which we all use on a daily basis.
