How organized are your cables and such? In addition, have you made it so that most of your appliances are wireless?

I try to use as few wires as possible. I'm planning on getting a wireless keyboard, but I really like the feel of my current keyboard, so I'm still deciding on it. I do try getting anything wireless when I can, though.

I try to wrap my wires and make sure that they are just the right length. I also keep them organized when I'm able to. I don't want a bunch of wires going to my TV or anything unless they're grouped together.

I'm so guilty for having untidy wires. I always plan on getting cable tidies and such to make it more pleasing to the eye and less of a pain when it comes to plugging something else in or taking something out. I've actually bought an absurd amount of cable tidies over the years and I've always ended up losing them before I've been able to actually use them.

Haha, the only reason I do it now is because my wife works in IT (and has for over a year now) and she got me into doing it. It's much nicer. I need to do it to my desktop but since I don't really use it, I don't really care. :C

The only thing which has wires around me is my laptop charger which I always keep rolled to appropriate lengths to avoid it getting tangled up. My external mouse is wireless and my laptop's keyboard definitely doesn't have any wires.

Everything is wired; it's not going anywhere. Charging cables for portable devices tend to get entangled with themselves each, for no apparent reason, but everything down the back of my PC is fine. The inside of said computer is surprisingly decent considering I assembled it, because the PSU manufacturer put sleeves on the groups of wires.

I'm very wired! I have power strips in nearly every outlet in my room u_u;;

I keep the excessive ones organized with rubber bands and wrapping them up though, but the wires behind my TV (TV power cord, DirecTV wires, Wii wires, PS3 wires) are a huge hot mess that I don't even bother with xD

Every port except for VGA and Ethernet are used on my laptop. It makes for a giant ball of spaghetti behind my laptop. Fingers crossed my imminent desktop isn't similar.

I've tried cutting back on the amount of wires I've actually got plugged into my computer (recently unhooked my scanner and switched to a wireless mouse), but all of them are still in a bit of a jumble behind my desk. I hope to transition over to a laptop in the not too distant future, so by then I won't expect to be dealing with much more than maybe a power cord.

Since my laptop screen is broken my VGA port is used & some time I connected my xbox to the laptop for internet. I really don't have that many wires.

Organization hahahaha

My desktop has a fair few wires going to and from it, and they're all lumped together in a mess that I hide with a small file cabinet. My laptop's just got the power cord, and I do a pretty good job of keeping it out of the way.

My family has what amounts to a tech centre so you have wires going between routers and power cables, and to peripherals and such. Wires are everywhere.
