Organizing Cords with Washi Tape

With all the electronic devices in our home, it's hard to keep up with the cords.  You see a cord on the counter and kind of know what device it goes to but sometimes you don't know until you try it.  A lot of the plugs are similar.  My husband's phone cord looks a lot like my daughter's tablet cord.  No more guessing now.


This is where we started, a tangled mess of cords.  Many of them were on the kitchen counter or stuffed in a drawer.

 
I pulled out my washi tape and got to labeling.  


I simply wrapped a piece of tape around the cords and labeled them with a Sharpie.



Now when we grab a cord, we know if it's really the one we need.

What do you use to organize your electronic cords?
