There comes a time in all our lives that is both exciting and terrifying. You get a brand new electronic device that you want to plug in, but you have to rearrange your cables to get it to fit. The main problem you’ll face is which one you should unplug. While I should hope most all of us have an effective method of organizing our cables, not everyone is so ardent about it.
To those of you who need a little assistance, the Cable IDs can do you a world of good. They are a tad reminiscent of swirly drinking straws, but these colorful spirals are actually wraps to help you know what’s what in the abyss of your power strip. They’re made of a flexible material which you can write on with a ballpoint pen or marker, and come in a set of 8. Paying $8 for these will have you on the road to a more organized work space.
