Many of us have a collection of package ties. You know, those little plastic things that close our loaves of bread.
I was reading my monthly installment of The HandyMan magazine and an article on repurposing those little plastic helpers caught my eye and attention. For a very long time they have been accumulating in a drawer and on occasion get gathered up and pitched out.
We miniaturists are the best recyclers and re-purpose'rs in the world!!!!
The author of the article suggested that those little plastic gadgets be used to label our cords in outlets, power strips and I took it one step further...our hubs. All it takes is a Sharpee and the plastic gadget and a bit of your time.
Following this tip will save you time in the long run. Time looking for the right cord. Time trying to figure out which USB cord goes to your ?????. And aggravation when you pull the wrong cord out of the hub.
In the process of reorganizing that cord drawer....I found two that are of the Neanderthal generation of USB's....can I bring myself to discard them?????...NO...I will repurpose them.
