anyone have any cable storage solutions you'd swear by? i'd share a photo of where we keep chargers and random cables, but i'm not prepared for that level of shame on a monday morning

I personally use velcro ties and big ziplock bags sorted by cable type

Using velcro strips, bins or storage containers (https://www.uline.com/Product/Detail/S-12415BLU/Plastic-Bins/Plastic-Stackable-Bins[…]zCH5n_cCiy4vHYKTX1-z8qB02ZSSTNvUaUDBoCbkkQAvD_BwE&gclsrc=aw.ds) and labels is about the best you can do. How you keep it tidy is likely more based on your accessory needs and the space you have.

I have used different organizers like this too: https://www.amazon.com/Organizer-Storage-Kitchen-Refrigerators-Cabinets/dp/B07BFPXKB[…]l=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=1014080&hvtargid=pla-443254401582&psc=1 -- mind the sizing you need

If you have a good rack setup, you can definitely keep it tidy and out of your hair.

Clear storage bin with a picture of the item and a label FTW

Those bins plus Ikea storage shelves would make a pleasing setup

The cheapest solution I have found is to use pipe cleaners that I cut down into twist tie sizes. Then I have a color of pipe cleaner per cable type. For example power cords are red, network cables are blue, phone cables white, etc. Then once they are all under control they are stored in a bin with a lable.

I like that idea a lot.
