In todays high tech society we are over run with cords — USB cords, iPod charging cord, laptop, printer, & internet cord, TV cords! I call it Cord Chaos and it drives me bananas (as Im sure it does you as well)!
Suggestions on managing the cord chaos:*
*My suggestions are product suggestions as Ive found these are the best solutions. Ive tried the cheap and easy (twist ties & handwritten labels). It works, but not well.
3 different sizes: Small ($2.99), Medium ($3.99), Large ($4.99)
Medium is my favorite size — small is a little too small for me BUT great for earphones
2. Cord Clip: Great for storing large cords (extension cords, printer cables, anything extra that you keep on hand but is too large for twist ties) ($5.99)
Its like a huge plastic clothespin!
5. Flexi Ties: Great for storing and for shortening cables that you are currently using. Example: 10′ HDMI cord that is 8′ too long and intertwined with all the other cords creating a huge mess? ($7.99/6 pk)
6. Kableflags: My favorite way to label cords! I love these things! ($6.99/10 pk)
7. “Command Hooks” make some really interesting cable management devices but they are for your wall. Example: You want to run a power cord down the wall and keep it from sticking out. Staples will do but command makes a few options that are much more efficient
All of these products are available at The Container Store. I have done the legwork and you cannot find anything related to cord management anywhere else (Target — no, Walmart — no, Lowes — no, Office Max — no)
What are your thoughts on any of these products? Do they seem too expensive? Is there something that you dont see but think would be ideal for you? I love questions and ideas! 🙂
