Peripheral and Cord Management System
This system is inspired by www.decluttered.com/. I cut down a peg board and mounted it underneath the desk with all of my peripherals (external hard drive, Airport Extreme Base Station, D-Link Wireless Router, USB 2.0 hub, Cable modem) strapped to the board using cable ties. In all, it cost me around $15 to setup with materials from Home Depot. This has been one of the best strategies for controlling clutter.
