We have a bundle of cords in two spots in our house: under the sideboard and around our nightstands. One of those bundles is completely inaccessible right now due to the Pack N’ Play that’s next to the bed and I’m too tired to deal with it so: the one big bundle of cords under the sideboard it is!
Apartment Therapy’s January Cure assignment for Day 15 is: Exercise a Little Cord Control
We’ve exercised some already, we keep three wicker baskets underneath the sideboard: one for Aiden’s train collection, one for his puzzles, and one for cords.
The cordthingythang (surge protector?) on the left doesn’t fit in the basket because the wires running into it are too stiff to bend that way. I would consider somehow attaching it to the bottom of the sideboard or the wall so it’s less visible, but I like having it easily accessible because we switch up the front outlets on a pretty regular basis.
I think if we really wanted to, we could cut out a hole in the back of the basket and hide the whole cord shebang in the basket, but 1-I have no idea how to do that and 2- the cords don’t bother me because it looks neat enough as is for me.
However, the box could use some neatening up, so we got rid of the cords we don’t use and now it’s our two computer power cords, and Tuvia’s old-school video game thing (I wonder what he’s gonna say when he realizes I don’t know what it’s called…)
Good thing he’s so charming 😉
Okay, I have to share this little story because it captures Aiden even in the midst of a fever/ear infection/virus/ exhaustion mix:
