Lately I've noticed that instead of having trouble finding the right cable, I have trouble finding the right container.
Because I have too damn many of them.
And that's not counting the container with the mice, or the container with all the DC wall warts (power adapters), or several other borderline 'not exactly cable' containers.
On the other hand, I suppose I could just throw out all the parallel cables, the ribbon cables, and even the firewire and VGA cables. But my pack rat nature rebels -- what if someday I need them?!?
