Many things have been happening in my household lately. I had been trying to enjoy the last few days of summer vacation, but I have also been itching to blog. I think it is becoming somewhat of an addiction. But, I fought the urge so I could hang out with my kids.
Today was their first day of school. And a new school at that. So, we all got out of bed and were somewhat anxious at what the day had in store.
But, it was a truly wonderful day for the kids! You may be wondering what I did without kids for at least three hours?(My youngest is in kindergarten.) I cleaned!!!!!!! I did not get far. My house has accumulated much dust over the summer.
Anyway, I was looking through the record book and found a great idea.
That’s the book.
This is the idea.
What you need?
Toilet paper rolls and paper towel rolls. Contact paper and a marker. If you read the direction above, you will notice nail polish or paint. Guess what? We have Sharpies!!!!!
This is a step by step process of what I did with a box full of cords.
I cleaned out our storage room the other day. This included going through all of the boxes, getting rid of things I did not even know I had and did not even need! It also meant tackling boxes like this!
I saved a ton of roll. With a family of five, you go through a lot of everything. I also found contact paper that I had stored away for use later. This project is a great way to reuse.
Take the roll and place it on the contact paper. Roll it until the paper overlaps a little, then cut.
Slowly peel the paper off the sticky contact paper and roll the cardboard until it is completely covered. I cleaned up the ends by taking my scissors and carefully cutting off the access.
Finally, place the cord into the tube. I chose not to label just in case I wanted to use these for another cord.
Here is the end result:
Much more organized!
Hope you can use this idea!
