In 1932, a small toy company in Billund, Denmark, launched a line of plastic bricks that could be joined together to create structures and shapes. It was called Lego and it was a success that continues to this day.
You can even use it to organize your gadgets and electronics. Here’s how.
Make a minifigure cable holder
If your desk is a chaotic mass of cables and wires? The solution may be small, yellow, made of plastic, and have dyed hair. What to expect?
Let’s slow down. I am of course talking about Lego minifigures (commonly called minifigures ). They were first invented in 1978 and allowed people not only to create buildings and structures, but also to bring them to life by adding people to them. Coincidentally, the arms on the minifig are wide enough to grab a standard USB cable.
Attach one to a Sugru drop and you can permanently attach them to a surface, thus creating your very own cable tidy. Just watch the video above for more inspiration.
Organize your DSLR lens caps
SLRs are undoubtedly expensive, but so are lenses. If they get scratched and dirty, the quality of your photos will suffer and it will be difficult to replace them. This is the reason we have lens caps.
These are, as the name suggests, small pieces of plastic that are attached to the lens when the camera is not in use. The problem is that they are easily misplaced, especially when you’re shooting outdoors or in a particularly cluttered environment.
But by attaching a Lego block to the lens cap with a bit of Sugru, you can keep it safe while shooting. The official Sugru YouTube channel shows how in the first 25 seconds of the above video.
Declutter your table
Once again Lego comes to the rescue. Using several cubes, you can create your own organizer. YouTuber BringerOfVictory shows you how.
