If you find that just the thought of a DIY project for cord organization projects overwhelming, you can purchase a product that’s designed specifically for this purpose. Some of these products include:

Boxes

Thanks to innovative people who were tired of having to deal with a mess of tangled cords, a box may be a smart solution. Today, you can find boxes that sit under your desk that you can run your cords through. You even have the option to use a “pretty” box to make this option both trendy and practical.

Getting Your Cords Organized for Good
