The Cord Organizing Process

Utilize the general organizing procedure of purge, sort and store, and apply it when organizing cords.


PURGE:

• Start by gathering all of your cords, cables and wires. Go through the pile by handling ONE cord at a time. Get rid of the things that you have several of and/or are no longer usable.

• As you make decisions, put the item in the corresponding pile, bag or box - Keep, Donate, Distribute, Don't Know, Recycle, Trash.

**If you come across cords that are a mystery, put them in the "Don't Know" pile. Keep them together somewhere, and get rid of them if you can't figure out what they are or don't use them for an extended period of time.**

• Take out the trash for a clean work area. Put the items in good condition going to donation and the unusable items going to be recycled in your car. If you found any items that belong to someone else, gather them and put them in a labeled bag in a visible place. This way you will remember to disburse them.


SORT:

• Next, separate what is left into categories in order to see what and how much you have (i.e. phone cords, audio/video wires, computer cords).


STORE:

• Finally, wrap rubber bands or velcro cable ties around them to keep the cords in neat coils.

• Use several bins or plastic drawers to store the wires not used very often by category.

• For cords that are frequently-used, utilize the products below to keep your desk area tidy.


MAINTAIN:

• Take the time to recoil cords and put them back in their proper place when done using them.

• Once a year, go through your wires and pare down.



IMPORTANT! WHY ORGANIZE CABLES?

According to Fire-extinguisher101.com, electrical distribution equipment (i.e. outlets, cords, wiring) is the third leading cause of house fires and the second leading cause of fire deaths.
