Whether your cord-labeling disaster is in your desk drawer or behind your TV stand, a silver Sharpie is all you need to keep order.
It's simple: Just write on them. The metallic silver Sharpie has the dubious distinction of being a dependable marker that will legibly write on both black and lighter colored surfaces—perfect for cords!
Label your camera upload cord with the word "camera," or a small hand-drawn icon of a camera if you're so inclined, to tell it apart from your other USB dongles. Or jot down a quick "M" on the business end of the power cord attached to your modem—you won't have to play that "follow the wire" game behind your desk the next time a tech tells you to unplug it.
We're sure there's a million other ways that you could put a writes-on-everything Sharpie to use in your home and home office. So if you have a "duh!" moment while reading this, be sure to leave a comment!
