Hacking away the clutter

Craft & Design

I hate clutter. But like every other media and tech junkie, my world is awash in print and recorded media and gadgets with cables, lots and lots of cables. Unclutterer is designed for those of us who want to have it both ways: neat and tidy and totally wired. They have lots of tips and tricks for hiding cords, charging stations, media centers (and the media that feed them), etc. In the above vid, they show how to use a cheap towel rack to get all of those cords off the ground behind your entertainment center.
