1. Purchase dish racks. (I got mine at Walmart for 4.77 a piece.)
2. Begin to wrap the cords from the back up and around the white metal dish holders on the racks. Be sure to leave enough cord hanging out the front for the kiddos to be able to plug in the computers.
3. Use permanent marker (don't worry it does come off with a Magic Eraser) and draw a shape in a certain color on the cord plug and the computer itself. (I used a purple circle on this one. I happened to have enough different sharpie colors to make them all circles. However if you do not have enough different colors, you can always do different shapes and colors.)
4. Finally set them all in the dish rack and explain to the kiddos that when they bring a computer back they need to match the cord with the correct computer.
And viola!!! NO more messy cords!
Do you have any quick and easy ideas to keep your computer area in order?? I would love to hear about them!
