Tips on how to set up unfastened cables

Cables are one of the things that you will only think of when something stops working and you want to unplug it. Instead, you're faced with dozens of tangled cables without knowing which one to unplug – a stress-inducing activity that no one wants to experience.

Tangled cables really are the devil's work. What's worse than a massive ball of cable with no end? I'm probably trying to untangle them. And who does that? It is you and you will succeed. It could be a difficult task, it could take some time, and it could boil your blood, maybe you will shed some tears and you will definitely work up a sweat, but you will succeed. After our not-so-encouraging conversation is over, let's organize some loose cables.

So you have a gorgeous new home office that you enjoyed so much. Everything is neat, clean and fresh. However, a peek under your desk reveals a bunch of messy cables and wires ready to make your life hell. Stop thinking "out of sight, out of mind" because it is time to get these wires in order and get them properly organized.

Unravel time.

Make sure that all electrical devices, such as printers and computers, are safely turned off before unplugging them. Once everything has been safely turned off, it's time to unplug and untangle. Take a deep breath and slowly disconnect the wires and cables. If you get frustrated, take a step back, have a cup of coffee, and then move on.

Label your cables.

As you disconnect your cables, it is a good idea to label them. So you know which cable goes where and which cable is which – computer, monitor, lamp, printer, charger, landline, etc. Adhesive tape is an inexpensive and easy way to mark your cables.

Tie them up.

To keep your cables neatly organized, loosely wrap and tie them together. You can easily tie them up with Velcro, masking tape, or any other fastener that you may have around the house. We wouldn't recommend using gaffer tape as it could leave a sticky residue.

Get rid of some.

Do you really need the cable for that old recorder you don't even own anymore? Do you really need 10 different USB cables? Make your life easier by donating, recycling, or throwing away unwanted or unnecessary cables.
