Easy Way To Pack Electronic Cords When Moving


Organized way to pack your electronic cords when moving

We’ve all been there.  We decided to move, hired a good moving company, and started the packing process.  Then we came across the tangled nightmare of electronic wires,  which after unplugging didn’t look much better.  It can be a pain packing these neatly, only to wonder which cable goes where when unpacking.  During the last move, I used these tips and tricks to save me a ton of frustration and hassle.  Check them out!

1.  Use colored or washi tape to label your electronic cords

2. Use toilet paper rolls to store your electronic cords

For those extra cables you didn’t put tape labels on, you can just label the toilet paper roll instead.  It will really make moving so much easier when you easily locate proper cords and set up each electronic without creating any messes.       


3.  Make a cable storage box

This was such a huge help when needing to plug something in having and having all the cables in one place.


4.  Use  a plastic organizer
