Here's one that I thought everyone knew till someone looked at me funny the other day. All of us have extension cords or electrical items with cords that need to be tidied up for storage etc. Grab an old toilet paper tube and fold up your cord then stuff it in the tube. Done!

Ha Ha Ha. I thought only my wife did that! I like to use twist ties myself. Longer life span. These work just as well in a pinch.

You sir, are a GENIUS! If I hadn't picked up a bunch of cord tamer things at a hardware storethat was going out of business, I would be out in the garage right now!

It's pretty funny this topic popped up again cause I literally just got done doing this to all my cords today. I myself have always been a twisty tie guy myself but this actually works great and less of a pain in the rear. Thanks again for the tip Joe.
