The Fix

Choose your level of Organization Below.


BASIC FIX: The Basic Fix is a great starting point for cord organization. If you need more detailed organization or have a large collection of cords, consider exploring the Detailed Fix below.

  1. Toss: Get rid of damaged or non-working cords/wires.

  2. Tie: Secure working cords/wires with write-on cable straps or magnetic clip-ties.

  3. Label: If using write-on label straps indicate what device/appliance each cord belongs to.

  4. Store: Place them into the drawer, bin, box or other selected container.


WHAT TO BUY:


PROS & CONS:

Pros:

  • Quick and Easy: It's a fast and straightforward method, perfect for those who want a simple solution without a lot of fuss.

  • Effective Tangle Tamer: Bundling cords with cable straps immediately reduces tangles, making it easier to find and use them.

  • Basic Organization: It provides a basic level of organization, saving you time and frustration when searching for cords.

Cons:

  • Limited Visibility: If you have alot, storing cords in a drawer or container can make it hard to see what you have at a glance, potentially leading to duplicates or forgotten cords.

  • Minimal Categorization: Without further sorting or subdividing, you might still have to rummage through bundles to find specific cords, especially if you have many.

 


DETAILED FIX: The Detailed Fix is ideal for those who value efficiency, visibility, and a high degree of organization in their cord management. ALSO for those who have a larger amount of cables and wires to store.

  1. Toss: Get rid of damaged or non-working cords

  2. Tie: Secure working cords/wires with write-on cable straps or magnetic clip-ties.

  3. Categorize:  Sort by type (e.g, phones, video games, computer, etc.)

  4. Subcategorize: if you have alot(e.g., Android vs iPhone cords). If you dont have alot, skip this step

  5. Store: Place them into the selected containers by category.

  6. Label: Write contents on each container.
