Are you so shocked and ashamed by Lance Armstrong's confessions that you no longer feel a need for all those Livestrong bracelets? Well feel no more, for I have a solution and a purpose to keep supporting its background cause. What better way to display your donation then by holding the wayward pieces of your computer cord together with this mighty arm band.
I was in my campus bookstore the other day checking out the cool computer gadgets they've got and I stumbled upon these things. They are apparently supposed to be used for holding your Macbook computer cord together when the extension is on. This is a really great idea, but those bands look like a cheap knock off of one of those stretchy jelly-like bracelets (much like a Livestrong one), maybe only 1/2 inch thicker.
Over the next couple of days I kept my eye out for some cheap versions of those bracelets. While I waited for something to catch my eye I tried things that I already had at hand. I first tested this theory with a really thin elastic band. With the cord being as heavy as it is, the elastic failed. I started to second guess whether or not this D.I.Y. was going to work but the next day my roommate came to me with a set of 3 Adidas versions of these jelly bracelets she just happened to be throwing away . Meant to be, right? So I took it upon myself to complete this challenge and blog all about it. What a great idea.
So here we are, and here is what my new organized Macbook computer cord looks like...
