If long and/or thick cables are becoming tough to wrangle, home and technology blog Unplggd suggests that a great way to keep them in their place is using a drawer pull.
A drawer pull is a cheap means of providing yourself with a cable wrap, and it's generally nice to look at too. You'll have to mount it to your wall, or some surface, so you'll be able to wrap so that's where the main effort comes in. Still, it's a very easy and clever solution. If you can't find a drawer pull that makes wrapping easy, you can always experiment with other options, like a couple of doorknobs.
