i always start my project with the amount of space i will allow for the items i am organizing. for this project i knew i was not going to allow for more than this size of a container.
i sort all the cords and place them in ziploc bags with the exception of the cell phones and cases that i have placed in a separate container. i tie each cord with a twist tie to keep them from getting tangled.
there is a ziploc bag for head phones with white cords, bag with black cords, bag with apple product cords, misc power cords, hdmi cords, and the cords with the three colored cords....I do not know what they are called.
