Use plastic twist ties (like the ones from bread bags) to label electronic cords. Makes it easy to know what to unplug when you reach behind the entertainment center, etc. Also works well for labeling all the wires going in and out of your TV/DVD player/etc. so you can setup quickly after a move.
Since organization is at its best when it's aesthetically pleasing too (and I'm constantly looking for ways to work washi tape into my life), I decided to make some cute little washi tape flag labels for the ends of my cords. Now there's no investigation work needed when trying to plug something into my computer!
Under the desk power strip basket.... feeling dumb again, how simple and praticle is this.... hang a cheap wire basket (Dollar store) and clean up that mess at your feet, don't forget to label the cords this time though.... love it... #OrganizeIt #StorageMart
