I have easy DIY charger cord labels to share with you guys today. This weekend as I started unpacking my jumble of cords from our weekend getaway in Key West. I realized I couldn’t tell the difference between which cords went to which charger in my bag. None were labeled and all the cords were either black or white.
Enough I thought. I’m fixing this.
Plus we are a multi laptop family with multiple ipads, iphones and Macs out at any given time which means we have the same type of chargers floating around! Do you have this too?
5 Minute Easy DIY Charger Cord Labels
Supplies to make charger cord labels
- Washi Tape
Pick a Washi tape that is not wax covered or metallic so it will be easy to write on. Make a simple charger cord label by cutting apiece of Washi Tape long enough to fold over a charger cord and write a description.
Yeah I know, ridiculously easy, right?
And aren’t some of the easiest ideas the best? Yet with all the creativity in our DIY brains I’ve never thought of doing this before today, making a simple charger cord label that will last until I’m ready to take it off.
Other good uses for charger cord labels? Label new items as soon as you open the box so the right cord stays with the right item from the start.
Have multiple cords and different owners of them in your house? Try using a different color Washi Tape label for each family member.
Do have a drawer full or tangled mess of cords that your not sure what device they belong to? Or maybe you have a favorite charge cord organization method you’d like to share? let’s talk about it…leave me a comment below:)

These are so smart! I really need to take the time to do this. I hate digging through cables every time I need one. Thanks for sharing this with us at Merry Monday this week!

Great tip! I have a ton of Washi Tape that I use for my planner and didn’t even think of taping all my annoying cords. Clever and simple! Thanks a bunch!
Hi Sue! How silly simple and useful was this post? My cords have been such a mess I knew others had the same issue! Besides Washi Tape is so pretty I believe it brings out the creative in us when we look at it. Thanks for stopping by and hope your new school year is off to a good start!

Hey Wendi, great idea! I don’t have washi tape but I do have an inexpensive (under $15 USD) label machine. I took your advice and put labels on all the cords. I also used generic double sided hook and loop tape (hooks on one side, loops on the other) to hold all the extra length of cords into a manageable bunch. (stuff like this: http://tinyurl.com/gmln54g ) After the first label went on and I started to wrap with the hook/loop, I realized i could fold the hook/loop over on itself and cut a slit in it to feed the cord plug through and never loose the tape.
Hi Christina! That was so smart! I have some extra Velcro tape here (somewhere..LOL) Smart idea to slit the tape and put the cord through it. I need this for under my desk..it’s a cord jungle! Have a great day & thanks o much for sharing your tip! I’m going to add a link in my post to a Velcro tape I’m sure other readers would love this too 🙂
