If you have an old telephone around—a unit you’ll never use again—and it has a coiled cord, cut off the cord (or just remove it by hand if it uses squeezable jack connectors). Then gather up your messy computer or entertainment wires and, following the curvature of the coiled cord, wrap it snugly around them to keep them together in a neat bundle.
If you don’t have an old corded phone or coiled cord, you can buy coiled telephone cord at the hardware store, Radio Shack or Amazon.com.
