She purchased a large binder and then punched holes in baggies to store all of her cords, chargers, etc.  I love this idea!

    Do you have any suggestions for cords you use daily? I have a power strip in my bedroom and use it very often to charge my phone and laptop but hate the ugly cords. Any tips?
