Organize Cables with Toilet Paper Tubes

Organize Cables with Toilet Paper Tubes


Here’s a handy tip from Instructables user berserk: You may be tidy enough to keep your snake pit of miscellaneous cords, cables, and wires all organized in a single box, but if you want to take your organization to the next level, neatly coil and stow each cord individually inside a toilet paper tube. Write descriptions on the outside in Sharpie, if necessary. Then pack them all up inside the box, and you’ll never have to rummage through tangled cords again.

    I tried this, and it does not really work for me. With 90% of my cables, it feels like I am bending them further than is comfortable.

    I’ve actually done this, but in a deep desk drawer.Works great!
