Organize your Cables Using Bread Bag Tags
You know you have a problem when the cables behind the TV are all tangled and piled up making a big big mess. The worst is when for some reason you have to disconnect one to connect another device and you need to start to unravel the monstrosity of cables and even move the furniture to find out which is which.
You could buy stickers or plastic tags to organize them or simply reuse the incredible plastic tags that come with bread bags, they also happen to be free!
Since I only got some blue and white labels, I decided to add a little color using nail polish. I used clothespins to paint the tags without making a mess, they worked great! The color helps me remember which cable belongs to which device.
