Learn how to organize extra cables around the house. Finding a way to store and organize the huge number of charging cables can be frustrating. I was able to organize all of our cables in one place and they’re labeled and organized and tangle-free.
Do you have that dreaded basket of charging cables? I know I did. It frustrated me every time I needed to connect my Cricut to my computer or I needed to upload photos or videos to my computer.
So, I bought myself a photo organizer to organize our basket of extra cables. Now everything is labeled and clearly organized.

Supplies you’ll need to organize electronic cables
Let’s get right to it. It’s really simple I purchased a photo box and used my label maker to organize and store our extra cables. The label maker is completely optional since the photo box does come with labels.
Follow these simple steps
Step one: Sort
The first step is to sort and untangle all of the extra cables to get them organized. I also made a loop with all of the cords. Then you’ll want to group the like cords together. For example, iPhone chargers, iWatch charger, Micro USB, etc.
Step two: Label
Next, you’ll want to label each of the boxes. I used my label maker for each group of cables. However, this is optional as the photo box does come with labels. Each group gets a box or two depending on the number of cables you’ll have.
Step three: Put them away
Once your boxes are labeled, add the cables to the box. You are done your extra cables should be organized. If you’re looking for a project that is quick and you’ll see big results, this is it.
This project took me about 30 minutes to complete. That included the time it took me to untangle the cords, change the batteries in my label maker, and take photos for you!
In conclusion, I love how simple this project was and the impact it has. My entire family can find the cables now instead of asking me to find it for them.
