Cords for electronic items

WELCOME to Rick and Paulette, new Followers of Me and My Dog.  The funny thing is, I've been reading "Rick and Paulette's RV Travels" for so long, they have always felt like members of my little blog family.  Thanks for making it official you guys! Welcome aboard.

WELCOME also to Joe64, who has a blog (Joe64-Weg-nach-Canada) which is written in German.  Joe, I noticed you have the Google translate gadget, which works very well.  And beautiful photos!  Thanks for following along on our journey to become full-time RVers!

Well, I've made an appointment with my local Social Security office in two weeks, so I'll be signed up in plenty of time to get that first check in January.  : ))))  Thanks for the comments received, I appreciate them.  The article Diana references in her comments is a very interesting read.  If you want a clear, detailed look at various options, check out the comments from yesterday and use the link Diana left.

So, to end this post, I'm showing you a photo of why I need a label maker.  At least one of the reasons.  Can you say OCD?  But really, how else can I keep track of all these?

I've finally gotten a system - attach a label as soon as I unpack any electronic item and put in the same drawer with the rest of the cords, so when I need it, I can find it. 

These are from my old cell phone, 3 for my new DroidX, phone earpiece, 2 for my Olympus camera, Kodak camera, 2 Kindle cords, Logitech mouse, Garmin GPS, MP3, and 2 universals.  15 cords.  And that doesn't include the cords in my car so I can re-charge while driving or away from home.  Unbelievable!

From Me and Katie, have a nice evening, everybody!  : )


  1. I'm having the same trouble with all the cords I have collected. I wish I knew which ones I could throw out.

  2. the modern techno world!..isn't it great!..our stuff looks the same..minus the nice labels!!

  3. It's too bad they can't make things that all work off of one set of cords. :(

  4. Wish they would make a universal cord! AND a universal charger.

  5. Yep...a universal cord!! What a great idea.
