Do you have a chaotic mess of cords behind your tv, stereo, and computer? Here are some easy tips for minimizing the confusion: 1. Use twist ties to keep all hidden cords together. These can also be used to control extra long cords - gather up the loose cord and secure with a twist tie when the correct length is achieved. 2. Label your cords! This one is a bit of a "why didn't I think of that?" idea - stick a label at the base of the cord identifying what the cord belongs to. This will eliminate the "what does this plug go with?" confusion. 3. For exposed cords, invest in a cord wrap. It's basically a plastic tube that wraps around your cords, and is available in various sizes, and can usually be found in black or white. This will help to blend the cords in with your baseboards so it's not such a tangled, exposed mess.
