LPT: I work with my laptop a lot. Here is my way of organising my wires on my desk
This is what desk looks like sans laptop


This is what desk looks like when laptop is back home


Items required

Bulldog clip
Rubber band
Thick cardboard with hole punched in middle and slit on one side
Cable of choice

Thick cardboard with hole punched in middle and slit on one side


Attaching cardboard to cable


Putting pieces together


Lining them all up

The cardboard prevents the USB adaptor from slipping through the bulldog clip and falling away. Bigger adaptors such as the MBP power adaptor will not require the cardboard, but may need removal of bulldog clip wire to place wire in.

Cable pulled out when required


Cable retracted when not required


Some cables will automatically retract by the weight of the wire itself. Attaching additional weight to the wire is not recommended as this added force might damage the jack on the laptop.
