Today we have a post from our sweet contributor Ana from The Lost Apron:
Home Organization: Color Coordinate Cords. When you have multiple family members with multiple devices, sometimes cords can get mixed up. You can label the cords with different washi tapes for each family member.
Find a washi tape that fits each style of each family member. If they like the tape they are more apt to use it.
Tape the washi tape around every removable piece of each power cord of for every laptop, iPad, e-reader, etc. Also put tape around the base of the earbuds and headphones. When teens start leaving (or borrowing) power cords all over the house, it is easy to tell which cords or earbuds belong to who.
For more fun ideas, see my Tutorials Page.
My name is Ana Sullivan. I began my blog, The Lost Apron, because people would ask me for advice on parenting. My only qualifications for giving advice is that I have been there and I am proud of who my children have become. I have a daughter in college, a son and another daughter that are college graduates who are working and living on their own. I have been married for almost 30 years to a dream of a husband.
I have been a working mom, a part-time-work-at-home mom, and a stay-at-home mom. Although I have prefered being the SAHM, I try to write my blog in a way that would encourage all moms to be better moms. I hope to be the mentor mom to the young mom and the friend to the older moms and grandmothers. You can visit me over at Pinterest and Facebook.
