That’s a seriously simple idea that makes complete sense! I am always pulling out the wrong cord…must remember to save those bread ties! Tfs Katrina.

Whoo Hoo, that’s a gold nugget. I spent time under our bed yesterday trying to organise the power cords. I even found one for our old cordless phone that was not even connected to anything.

Brilliant idea.
I will have to come with something else – I bake our own bread and don’t have bread-tags. But simply the idea of naming the cords! Wow!

Please if you have you g children crawling that power cords are unavailable for then to access because at our clinic we have a few children come in from bread ties being a choking hazard.

We write on plugs in multi board so it’s easy to know which one to pull out. Write on white ones with permanent marker and black ones with correction fluid. Saves pulling out the incorrect machine.
