5 Tips for Managing All Those Wires


Go Wireless

Even if you can't part with your old-school electric pencil sharpener, you can mostly compute wirelessly. Your computer needs some power, but you can replace your mouse, printer, keyboard and router with wireless versions. You can even get wireless hard drives these days. Cut the cord with your old-school dial phone and give it up for a sleek cordless model whose corded base lives across the room.
