When you've got a lot of cords in one area, it's difficult to tell which ones belong to which appliances—especially behind your peripheral-heavy computer desk. Instead of buying paper or plastic labels, just use the plastic tabs from bread bags.

Whether you’ve got just a few A/C cords plugged into the wall or a tornado of cables tangled up behind your computer desk, never again will you have to follow the cord through the monstrosity and back to the source just to find out which one it is.
Not only will it make your life a heck of a lot easier, they’re much sturdier than any paper tag or sticker that you might otherwise buy at an office supply store. Hit the link for 9 other great uses for plastic bread tags, and be sure to share your thoughts and experiences in the comments..
