We've mentioned using cardboard tubes to keep your cables tidy before, but Instructables user berserk takes it to a new level with a full-on cable organiser based on toilet paper tubes. Instead of shoving all those cables into a box and letting them get tangled up, you can slide them all in a box, one-by-one, in their own individual toilet paper tubed bundles, as shown above. Now, when your TiVo's HDMI port breaks and you need to use that component cord you have hoarded away, it's really easy to find. Got any other DIY cable organising methods you'd like to share? Let us know in the comments.
