If you remember from last week, I organized my TV stand. What was left were those pesky wires.
The wires were really bugging me. That’s how this little organizing project started.
I had them coiled up in this basket, but I wasn’t thrilled with it. I’ve seen all over Pinterest how toilet paper tubes and paper towel tubes were used to store and organize wires.
I wanted to do the same thing for 2 reasons: 1. I obviously had to organize these wires somehow. 2. It’s what I had on hand = FREE! Gotta love free organizing projects. I already had leftover tubes from school for Earth Day projects and I had a few at home in the recycling bin.
Once I had all the tubes I needed, I just used some pretty scrapbook paper (also free) from my stash and tape to cover up the tubes.
Now they look so pretty. I purposely chose these papers because they coordinated without being too monotonous.
Then I just put them all in a storage box that I had leftover from emptying things in the spare room.
Nice and organized for the time being. I wanted to label them but the batteries went on my label maker and I was too lazy to look for new ones. This is a temporary solution until I get the dresser I want. I don’t think the storage box will fit in the drawers, but we’ll see. In the meantime it fits perfectly on the bottom shelf of the TV stand.
In the cabinet I now have a basket of the CD’s that were in there originally until I figure out a way to organize them properly. I’ve got other CD’s in random places so I have to think of a better solution for those. That’s another day.
A free organizing project. Gotta love free right? This took about as long as an episode of The King of Queens. The pole dancing episode. Enough said.
