Q. My husband loves his technology, but the back of our entertainment center is a jumble of cords. Is there a way to organize the cords and hide them from view?
A. The first step to organizing your knot of wires is bundling them together with either Velcro strips or cable ties. Gather the cables together starting at the electronics, and work your way toward the power source. Try to group them by purpose — keep TV, cable, and DVD cords in one group; stereo and speaker cords in another; and so forth.
