Quick Release Cable Harness Stitching

A quick demo of how I stitch cables to keep them organized. (our living room has a bundle of about 5 cables running up to our fireplace mantle, so it's particularly important.)

A Great GTD kit for $1.44

What I use are Mead Ringdex cards..

File Faster, Pull Icons Off of Your Bills

I was reorganizing my file cabinet recently (after neglecting the project for many years and building up a severe organizational deficit.) I was getting all fired up and ready for making a word template for the folder tabs I would need, when laziness (and therefore invention) struck.
