Saying I have a lot of cords, chargers, and headphones is like saying Fab has a lot of shoes or Bella has a lot of moisturizers. Naturally, I collect gadgetry and along with it, miles upon miles of wirey goodness. There are plenty of innovative devices and tips for controlling cord clutter, but at the end of the day, the most basic wins in my book.
I purchased a set of pretty craft boxes from West Elm a while back and have devised a fool-proof system: I only keep the items I use weekly in this box. That way, I know my camera cord and charger, extra computer power cord, shuffle cord, iPhone cord, travel BlackBerry charger, and an extra USB cord are in the same place when I'm running out of the house. It has saved my sanity more than a few times.
