Keep Those Cables and Cords Organized!
Jan 30, 2010
In any home or office, cables are likely to be found tangled or just plain messy. If you’re dealing with a pile of cables that just seem to lead to nowhere, try using some of these quick and easy tips for organizing your electronics, as well as streamlining your cable usage.
- First off, don’t choose cables or cords that are entirely too long for your space. Go with a cord or cable at a length that’s comfortable enough to allow for a bit of movement, but not long enough to have to be coiled in a pile once your devices are set up.
- Use cable ties or cable bundles to keep cables separate and from getting tangled. These cable organizers are usually very cheap and can be found at a variety of electronic stores.
- Finally, replace any old cords and cables that you may not be using, or just store them away. If you have that extra component video cable still hanging off the back of your entertainment center, now is the time to let it go. Store your cables in a place where you can get to them if you need them, but don’t feel like you have to leave them out in the open.
