Cord guides keep two wires from getting tangled up. The adhesive on these guides allows you to run two cords side-by-side along walls or underneath your desk. You get the same type of deal with the Cord Catcher shown below which can hold up to four cords.

This is by far our favorite way to organize cords. Cord identifiers allow you to determine what the cord is connected to so you no longer have to guess as you pull the plug on your computer possibly losing valuable work! There are many cord identifiers, the one pictured being the most advanced. This kit even includes colored stickers to label the outlet as well.

4. Cord Wraps

Cord wraps and cases are ideal for storing cords that aren’t used all the time or for cords that don’t need to be extended to their full length. Use these for USBs and phone chargers.
