How to keep cables tidy

...In your office/study
Wrap up headphones
Don't get us started on headphone wires. If you're forever untangling them, wrap them up with VELCRO® Brand Cable Ties before you put them in your pocket or bag and they'll be untangled and ready to use when you need them.
Wrap up excess wire that trails along the floor
