6 Ways to Keep the Cable Mess Under Control

There’s no denying that technology has infiltrated every single aspect of our lives and going around your home or office and you’ll be sure to find a plethora of devices, gadgets, and computers that you probably use on a daily basis.

However, with gadgets comes wires to power them all and connect everything up, and despite spending a lot of money on getting these devices in the first place, having a lot of wires just looks horrible. What’s more, trying to sort out any problems becomes a nightmare when everything’s tangled together.

Fortunately, with a drop of mindfulness and the right knowledge for the job, there are several ways you can keep your wires organized and together to make everything easy and ensure your home or office looks neat and tidy. Let’s get into it.

1. Rearrange Your Room

The first, and probably easiest, way to keep everything organized is to move your room around, so your electronic devices are near the outlets. If your television is on one wall and your plug is on another, it’s going to be messy to see the wires trailing.

Take a step back and have a look around your room to see where you can put things to keep everything together and near a power supply. The less distance, the better.

2. Combine Your Wires

Let’s say you have a television with surround sound cables, a games console, and power supply cables. This is a lot of wires, and it can be easy to mix everything up and not really know what you’re dealing with.

Instead, use ties or rubber grommets to keep all the wires from one location together. Bind all your speaker wires together, all the power leads together, etc., and as soon as you need them, you’ll be able to find them.

3. Put Things Away

This is especially important if you’re working on a desk, but if you’re not using a wire, put it away in a special storage location, or even just a drawer. Having wires out you don’t need at the time is messy, unorganized, and it’s easy to make things confusing.

4. Use Wireless Platforms

Nowadays, we live in an age where everything is going wireless, so why not see if you can upgrade to a wireless alternative. From wireless phone charging platforms to wireless Wi-Fi connections over traditional ethernet cables, there’s plenty of options to explore.

5. Use a Cord Organiser

Just like the famous saying states there’s an app for everything, there’s also a product for anything you can think of, and this includes wire and cable organization. Take a look online for professionally designed and manufactured organizers to help you label and clear up your technology.

6. Get Rid of What You Don’t Need

Do you have a surround system or games console that’s plugged in with cables that are just making a mess? When was the last time you even used these devices? If not regularly at all, maybe it’s time to sell it on or get rid of it. You might also make some money at the same time!


As you can see, there are plenty of ways to organize your cables and clean up your mess. All you need to do is find the way that works best for you and implement it everywhere! Messy cables are now a thing of the past!
