This Week's Tip: Tangle-Free Earphone Storage

The Mom Squad shares some useful tips

It can be nearly impossible to keep earphone wires from turning into a tangled mess! We've all tried the same thing: you wind them up neatly and then put them away. By the time you need them again, they're a big ball of wire. Then you have the annoying task of untangling them before you can use them.

Not anymore! Cassete tapes may be obsolete, but their cases can serve a new purpose. Simply wind the wire around the 2 pegs inside the case, then close it. You now have the perfect little case for your purse, gym bag, or backpack!

Love this! I'm going to start doing this for mine since they are ALWAYS a tangled mess inside my purse. And actually, another use for old tape cases is a storage for USB drives. I usually can fit between 3 and 4 of them and because the case is see-through, I know where they are rather than them getting lost at the bottom of my bag. Thanks for the tips ladies!
