Organize those cords – for cheap!

Monday, November 22nd, 2004 by | Filed Under: Uncategorized

I’m tired of having computer cords and wires and cables hanging out of everywhere! The office supply store sells Cord Management do-hickeys, but they’re quite expensive. Any quick (and cheap) solutions?

Most of us have wires all over the place. If you’re a neat freak, this can be a constant source of aggravation and frustration. The good news is that there is a simple way to get them off the floor, off the monitor, and generally out of the way.

A woodworking tool known as a ‘clamp’ (a spring type thing for holding wood together, similar to huge spring clips for paper) works fantastically well for this. They run anywhere from $0.99 – $2.00 US at your local hardware store.

I am in the process of moving my office around (yet again) and until things are situated right (with networks, attachments, scanners, etc.) the wires are in the way. So, I just took one of those big clamps and clamped it to a shelf on the desk. There is plenty of room behind the grasping edge of the clamp and the jaws to fit a bunch of wires. I used a total of 4 clamps and all the wires are up and out of the way.
