Onelmom shows how you can use a short bit of elastic to make a cord keeper to keep your gadget cords and cables from getting all tangled up. She used buttonhole elastic scavenged from a pair of kid pants, but she says you can use regular elastic, too. I always have little bits of elastic left over from sewing projects – too short to do anything with, but my hoarding self can’t throw away. Add some magnets and some buttons and you can a cord keeper. Go to Onelmom for the tutorial.
