Keeping cords and cables organized

    Here's a silly question for the Felix Ungers out there.

    I've always had a problem with clutter, and my cables, AC adapters, etc., are always getting tangled up into knots, so I'm beginning to reconsider the twist tie method. I'm wondering what others do to stay organized -- I'll put everything into separate ziplock bags if I have to.

    Any thoughts?

    Maybe you can go for cable clip... Zip bags lock is not a neccasity.. for my opinion..

    Hmmm, I don't even know what cable clips are but I'll sure look for them. Thanks!

    Wrapping cables together may induce eletro magnetic interference.

    So be aware to group them by catagory, keeping power cords away from audio and digital signals.

    I use plastic totes, 1 for each type of cable, Mic, instrument, midi, etc. I coil every cable and use velcro wraps to secure them and then toss them into appropriate tote.,

    The totes are a good idea. Actually I bought a dresser specifically for studio supplies, but I'll see if I can find some storage compartments that will fit in the drawers so I can further separate things.

    Yup, that's where I went. Found some plastic trays that fit perfectly.
