The best ideas are often the simplest. Well, it doesn’t get simpler, or smarter, than using bread clips to corral your power cords. We’ve all been there - the space behind your desk has turned into a certified rat's nest. A fact of our gadget-laden lives is that power cords and cables get knotted up and become difficult to distinguish. Take five minutes and label all the electrical cords behind your desk or entertainment center with a permanent marker and different colored bread clips. Be sure to label both ends for maximum organization. That way, you don’t have to play the classic game of “tug on the cord” to determine which cord belongs to which gadget. Thanks to unplggd for this great DIY tip!
