If you’re like most people, you probably have tons of electronic devices. Flatscreen TVs, home theater systems, cordless phones, computers, printers and digital picture frames are all part our everyday lives. Not to mention the umpteen chargers required for a family's worth of portable devices. What that creates is a giant mess of spaghetti that most people just shove behind a console or table, where it inevitably creates a suitable warren for dust bunnies.
Besides looking awful, a tangle of wires is impossible to sort through if you ever need to replace a component in a home theater system, or grab the power cable for your laptop for a trip. Had enough? A simple solution is to sort through all those cords and label each one at the plug and near the device it's connected to. Of course it’s even better to do this when you first get a product, before you hook it up. A label maker is ideal, but if you want to go old-school, masking tape and a sharpie will do. Another tip, group wires and zip tie them together to keep things tidy.
