ID Pilot Wire Identification Labels
I've been trying to get better at organizing my cable mess, so recently I bought a beautiful black box from The Container Store and hid all my power strips along with cables in it. The cables come out on one end to plug to my computer, and only two cables go out of the box to plug into the wall. It's better than having a small mess of roll-up cables on one corner. My next project is going to focus on labeling cables. I currently have all those extra cables in a box, and it gets confusing trying to figure out what cable belongs to what gadget. I've been looking for an easy way to label those wires, and I'm glad I found the ID Pilot Wire Identification Labels. Three types of sticky labels are available (Office, Electronics, and Household) so you don't ever have to wonder what cable goes to what. At $6 a package, these ID labels are a great buy.
I have a serious cord problem, and this looks like a semi- unhideous solution...
Hides cords, cables, and transformers for up to 10 devices. A single 4.5’ grounded power cord plugs into your wall, delivering power to 10 hidden outlets inside.

A single 4.5’ grounded power cord plugs into your wall, delivering power to 10 hidden outlets inside. A 15-amp circuit breaker provides protection from overload; 3400-joule surge suppression guards against sudden spikes that can fry your semi conductors! Just pop open the sturdy lid (strong enough to support your monitor on top), and wind excess lengths of cables and cords into neat bundles. Self-adhesive retaining rings keep cords under control. Feed the connector ends out the side — in just the lengths needed to plug in — and you’ll have order where once you had chaos!
