Every time my mom walks in to my room and I am working, at one or the other point she trips. No, there is nothing different in my room from yours, except the bunch and criss-cross of cables that you can find scattered almost every time. Yeah! The reason I don't pile them up is because usually I am on my laptop 24x7, thus I feel awfully lazy piling and unpiling them again and again.
However, now it seems I have found something to keep such a hassle away and also scoldings from my mom. This piece is called 'power block' and you can always hide your cables within this. This can be elegantly pushed to a wall, after you heap all those inside it and then it looks like just any other wall socket.No one will know the secret other then you. This is available for just about 115.00 €. Any price to keep away from my mothers constant nagging.
