Cable Clutter

Cord Control

I just found a unique, decorative way to hide cables.  Very creative, very cool, but not for everyone.  See link to post below…

There are much more basic, easily purchased options at your local office supply store or on line.  It is great to use these cord covers for aesthetic purposes.  Having cords here there and everywhere under your desk or by other equipment can be distracting and you can feel the stress of the “clutter.”  Click on these links to see how to control that cable clutter:

But you don’t want to just hide them.  You want to mark your cords so you know what they belong to.  You can do this with a sticker or a label.  Just make sure it will stick well.  If you want sturdier pre-made option, see these products below.  You can also look at these as examples and see what you have at home that you can use to get same result.  You don’t have to spend a lot of money to do this.

Sorry for the delay in posting…I guess I feel the Spring in the air and between clients I have been working on organizing myself.  Yes, organizers have to organize too! Well, at least do the maintenance to keep our systems in place and every now and then tweak a system to make if more effective!

And it is Tax Time, wrapping up mine today.  Next week we’ll have our final Tax Tip Thursday…what to do with all the paperwork once you have filed your taxes.  Ok, if you have not started your taxes yet, get off this blog and start now!

I had some time this morning and I had a little file purging session for myself.  A nice big bag of recycling and lots to shred.  It feels great!

More next week, I promise…  Wishing you all a Happy Easter and/or Passover.
