We have all dealt with tangled cables at least once. The good news is that there is a simple way to organise them. Say goodbye to this annoying inconvenience.

For many, one of the most frustrating problems is tangled cables. Despite carefulness, wires in the workplace magically tangle into complicated knots. But this problem doesn't have to be your torment – there is a simple way to manage tangled cables. What's the secret?

Trick for tangled cables

If you are struggling with the problem of tangled cables, a true lifesaver is a cable organiser. You don’t need to invest much money in it. Various professional organisers are available on the market, but you can also easily create such a gadget at home. The process is straightforward and doesn't require much effort. This way, your cables will always be in place, and you will avoid frustration.

How to make a homemade cable organiser?

You would need two old shoeboxes (the same size) and scissors to create your organiser. You might find these in your closet, basement, or attic. If not, ask at a shoe shop—often, sellers are happy to give away unnecessary or slightly damaged boxes. Once you have the necessary materials, you can start working!

On the @organizacjaprzestrzeni profile on Instagram, you'll find a great guide on creating an organiser from old shoeboxes. By dividing one of the boxes without a lid into four parts, you will get an equal number of cardboard pieces to cut. Then, place them in the second shoebox – they must fit perfectly like puzzle pieces.

After placing all the cardboard pieces inside the box, they will form four compartments—done! Now, organise your cables, untangle them, sort them, and check if all are working. If you want your organizer to look nicer, you can decorate it with colourful paper. With a large number of cables, it’s worth making at least two such organizers and labelling them well.
