Francisco liked our post about cable organization in the home office using items not designed for the purpose and sent in his own solution using a CD spool to wrap his excess cables.
I was inspired by your recent post about cable organizers made from IKEA products and got this idea to create a simple cable organizer myself. I'm also one of those people that really don't like all that cabling hanging loose, but has no choice due to the intensive use of it.
I just used an empty 25 CD spool container, cutting two holes in it and stuffed it withh all the cables in side with the ends sticking out the holes. You can cut the CD center for better "stuffing" or use it to wind up the cables. Also, there are smaller (10) and bigger (50) boxes for you cable madness needs.
