Who could have thought that clip binders could have this kind of purpose? To keep track of your windy wires, clip those binders on your desk and make them cord keepers. In this way, no wire will be tangled and it's easier to locate the charger of your phone, tablet, laptop, etc. Remember, if you are organized in your things, you are happy!
Now, if you really have time, turn those boring notebook covers into something more 3D-ish. Get some needle and thread to make an awesome embroidered notebook. Your kid would also want to try this one for him/her. Make sure to help your kid when doing this especially when holding those pointy materials like the needle and scissors.
