Washi Tape Cord Labels

While we’ve got a good solution for larger cords, I noticed that our daily use electronics cords were a mess. Which is much less than ideal since it seems like my electronics are ALWAYS running low on battery. I can never remember which cord goes with which gadget. Oh how I wish every iPhone and iPad could just use the same charger!

Joe can look at any of the cords below and know exactly which electronic item they belong to. Me? I try to plug in every single cord until discovering the very last one fits 🙂 . Happens.Every.Time. Fortunately the problem was solved with this quick labeling trick.



For this project the pictures speak a thousand words. I just love how easy this one is.

First, pull out all the electronics cords you need labeled. I found 5 different ones that I use regularly. Using your label maker, print individual labels for each. I used label clear label maker cartridge with black ink.

Wrap a piece of washi tape around the end of your cord. Adhere the label to the washi tape. Then trim the edge of the washi tape to make a straight line.

Yep, that’s it. Easy peasy!

    Great idea! With 3 teenage boys in the house, it’s practically a race to find a charger and even more crazy with all of the cords. Thank you for your tips!
