One cable for the iPod, one cable for the mobile phone, another one for the laptop… sometimes it’s hard to tell all those cables apart.
When I came across some plastic plant markers which I had bought for my garden herbs, I had a lightbulb moment. The plastic can easily be cut with scissors, and a permanent fineliner was close at hand. Only the holes in the markers weren’t big enough for the cable ties, so the hole punch came in handy. Tadaaa, easy-peasy cable identification!
