One of the things I really can’t stand about my office is the mess of cables that are clearly visible to whomever walks by my desk. As much as I have tried to clean and consolidate the cables, it still left a mess.
My solution was to take a trip to IKEA and pickup this cable management rack I saw on Lifehacker.
Installation just takes a few minutes, and then you have a nice cable rack where you can route and wrap cables around.
With this I ran the cables from my printer and Windows Home Server and pulled other cables together and got them off the floor. Now it is much, much cleaner and organized. For just $10, this really is an easy and cost-effective way of cleaning up your office.
