Napkin Ring Cord Keeper

December 8th, 2015

I purchased two pineapple napkin ring holders over 15 years ago simply because I loved them. I don’t really use napkin rings and two isn’t enough if you’re having a party. They’re super cute and I’ve been trying to think of a place to use them. After cleaning out a drawer in the living room, I realized they’d make great cord keepers!

Low and behold, they’re PERFECT!!! The sturdy ring makes getting the cord in and out quick and easy, unlike the velcro cord keepers I’ve used in the past. Now, I might have to buy a few more for other cords I have knocking around the house. I love coming up with useful ideas for things I love and for finding a beautiful way to accomplish necessary things.

Have you come up with any great ideas recently?

    Wow, that is such a great idea. My husband is a musician and we normally have cords EVERYWHERE! Not to mention the TV, DVD and all the other cords. I have napkin rings in the desk drawer that have never been used. Now I can dust them off. :)
