Getting Cords and Cables Under Control
SOLUTIONS FOR CREATING ORDER OUT OF DISARRAY
- Tie them up. Hook and loop cable ties, which come in various lengths and thicknesses, and stretchy, silicone magnetic ties, both work well for corralling cords, and are ideal for devices that you move around a lot.
- Add a sleeve. A cable sleeve keeps cords and cables neatly wrapped together from computer to electrical outlet. And for a side bonus, the sleeve can also help deter four-legged feline friends from chewing on the cords (depending on the sleeve’s material).
- Stick it to ‘em. Self-sticking clips are good for smaller cords (like charging cords) that you need ready access to. (Look for multipacks that have clips for single as well as multiple cords.) Stick them on or under the desk, on a desk leg—whatever works for you—so your cables are always within reach when you want to plug something in.
- Keep them in line. An alternative to self-sticking clips, a slotted cable organizer is also great for multiple, smaller cords. Wooden, self-stick organizers look classy; if you want to avoid self-stick, look for a weighted design.
