It's been a while since I wrote about anything other than food, travel or fashion, so though I'm no Martha Stewart, let me share a simple home remedy I discovered today :)
With technology at its peak, a person probably owns at least 3-5 gadgets... a Blackberry, an iPhone, an iPod, an iTouch, an iPad, a laptop, a digicam, a Flip, a Kindle, take your pick. If you're one of those gadget kings and queens, don't you just hate it when you have all these chargers tangled up?
|Such a mess!|
I know some chargers come with this velcro thing that holds the wires together (like Nokia chargers) but most of the time, chargers don't have that (like Macs and BBs). Since I keep all my chargers in one box, I usually just get the string that seals bags of bread to tie my chargers together. Problem is, the string is only good for a couple of uses. Finally, while looking for something in True Value, I found a solution to my dilemma.

A twist tie is a metal wire that is encased in a thin strip of paper or plastic and is used to tie the openings of bags, such as garbage bags or bread bags. A twist tie is used by wrapping it around the item to be fastened, then twisting the ends together (thus the name). They are often included with boxes of plastic food bags or trash bags, and are commonly available individually in pre-cut lengths, on large spools, or in perforated sheets called gangs.
Aside from the fact that Twist Tie keeps my chargers from being knotted, I love it because it's so handy! The guy who invented it thought of everything already and integrated a cutter with the wheel.. No more wasted time looking for scissors whenever organizing stuff! What's more, I bought it for less than $1! It's been a while since I bought something so useful at that price. Love it, love it, love it.
