Photo Hunt: Electric

This is one of my pet peeves. I hate having to unravel all these cords! Electric cables are like hangers; it's almost impossible to store them neatly. Heaven help you if you don't take the time to tie them down after you wind them up. Somehow they'll end up unravelling mating with all of the other cords. That's why I love my retractable-cord headphones!

For more electric things, head on over to the Photo Hunt.

Oh you got that right and since I'm sure this sentiment is shared by many out there, it wont be long before we see an informercial on how to neatly store the cords (and hangers too please).

Have a good weekend.

Oh we need an extension cord deperately! but yes that is a great mess!

I should have taken a picture of my cable "salad" ! I found a solution, I put the whole mingled bunch in a nice basket and put a little napkin over the ugly wires. It looks nice and it's easy to clean now you just have to lift up the basket.

Great shot. I totally agree. I have tons of wires and cords to deal with on a daily basis because I'm deaf.

I've gotten so frustrated with it that I now put a lot of my cords in ziplock bags. Sometimes I even label the bags.

Reminds me of all the tangled cords that had to get thrown away, when we moved out of our family home of 20+ years.

Jama said...

I hate it too, they really are an eyesore!

bing said...

one of the ways to keep these cords tangled is to loop each cord before you keep them. it would be easier pulling each.

nice unique take for the theme, btw.

Liz said...

Oh yes! Our home is full of those too! Terrible things.

Irene said...

Interesting. Didn’t manage to visit in time. Internet was down for almost a week since last weekend.

Swtlilchick said...

It is funny because I always had a
problem with tangled cords too.
They make you half crazy by the time you get down.Worse then that is Christmas lights ,if they become tangled its a real big mess.
I can honestly say I know how you feel
