Ok the toilet roll cable holder was very impressive - I really liked that as I have millions of the things all over the place  Cool

Yeah the toilet rolls is the best one out of them clips I think. You are the first poster too I thought this was yet another thread gone to the dogs. Perhaps I really should start posting some serious rubbish / argumentative threads as members here seem to thrive on drama.

Quite frankly around here .. anything controversial seems to be the most popular these days.
Failing that, just post a lot more regularly - people will soon start replying more.

Toilet roll holder was a good idea - shame I don't work for my old place where I used to run a toilet roll making machine  Grin

Re: 5 Hacks That'll Improve Your Life

Toilet roll tubes are a good suggestion but only for smallish cables. After recently struggling to untangle the cables in my storage box I have started to put them in freezer bags. As well as marking the bags I can see what is inside because they are clear. Tubes however could be arranged more neatly than a drawer full of bags.

Cable ties or elastic bands are also good to keep cables fro tangling up Wink

Only problem with toilet roll holders is my dog, he LOVES them  Grin They wouldn't last long in a box.

So that any residue can drip down the spoon handle and make a mess Lips are sealed
I thought those holes were for hanging the pots on a hook...
