DIY solutions, like these rain gutters, are great and all, but sometimes you just want to go online, pull out your credit card and have the perfect cable control solution shipped right to your door. After all, the sooner you can get those cords behind your desk hidden away, the more time you'll have for, you know... actually working.
With all of the emphasis on DIY and building out customized organization solutions, we want you to know it's OK to throw "custom" to the wind. You can get all of your cord mess under control in just a few minutes and for under $40 (even as low as $5!) with each of these ready-made products.
Each of these would be a great solution for folks who love slim desks; they all attach to the edge or underneath your desk, so cable spaghetti doesn't creep out from your workspace. And if you're looking to pull your workspace away from the wall to the center of the room without leaving behind a trail of cords, one of these trays might help make it possible.
