Free Cord Organizer for the Junk Drawer

Here is a quick and simple organizing idea for your junk drawer using recycled toilet paper tubes. 

Cord Organizer for the Junk Drawer

Does your charger drawer look like mine? 

If it does then this is a free and easy project just for you! 

Junk Drawer

Try this...

Cut a cardboard toilet paper tube in 1/2. 

Next, wrap it in pretty paper or burlap, use clothespins to secure until the glue dries.

You might want to use full size tubes for longer cords.

And that's all there is to it! 

The colors and designs are up to you!
