How to Use a Bucket to Store Extension Cords

Long extension cords can quickly become a tangled mess. Ron offers a way to keep them organized and easy to use.

Take a five gallon bucket and drill an inch and a quarter or inch and a half hole on the side.

Pass the plug end through the hole and feed the rest of the cord into the bucket. Now when it's time to do the job, just pull the cord out as much as you need.

When you're finished just lay it back in, pick up the bucket and walk away.
