Happy New Year! I don’t know about you, but I have noticed that with all these new electronic peripherals, miscellaneous devices and components hooked up to my computer and outlets, my desk sometimes look like a thick tangled mess! This can be extremely frustrating when I am on the run and need to grab my headphones or cell phone charger quickly.

One of my New Year’s resolutions is to get organized! To avoid wasting time untangling cords and instead make my desk more organized and neat, I have compiled a list of my favorite cable and wire shortening/control solutions. Here are my top five solutions:

1.Velcro Brand  One Wrap Cable Ties РCable tie fasteners can be opened and closed thousands of times and are easily refastened. Comes in a variety of colors for organization and high visibility!

2. Cord Hog Cable Organizer – Very intriguing design. Takes up the extra slack to adjust you cord to just the right length. Only 2 inches in diameter, the Cord Hogs can hold nearly 12 feet of wire. Get organized and get untangled!
