I was recently asked by a reporter for some cord wrangling tips, so I thought I’d share my answer here.

All hail Blue Tooth and USB! Go wireless when possible. If cords do need to be corralled, bundle the “leftover” length behind the desk for a clean look. Use Velcro cable ties or cable clips for this. At the plug end, place labels so that you know what you’re unplugging. Your power strip doesn’t have to live on the floor; consider mounting it behind your desk.

Here are some nifty ways for keeping those wires under control:
