Quick Tip: Cable Box

I usually don't recommend specific products, but this time I have to.  I HATE cords. Can't really even express it in words. It's something I have the hardest time creating aesthetically pleasing solutions for because, well, there just aren't any great ones. I've yet to see something that did what I wanted to without looking as ugly as the cords themselves. Then I spotted this product and HAD to have it immediately.

Before:

After:

It's not perfect, but I'm soooooo much happier with it than the prior set-up. Frankly, what I want is absolutely no cords but that's not realistic. I can look at this and be cool. As I tell my clients, organization is not about perfection. It's about creating something that works for you. This works for me and makes me much happier.

(I also took advantage of the transfer to label all of my cords. No more guessing what I'm about to unplug anymore!)

Total time: 20 minutes

I bet you could DIY something crafty on the outside of the box to make it look better, but that's not really my forte. Do you have a crazy cord mess that could benefit from this nifty box?
