    As the title suggests, I need to find a better way to sort all the various accessories you get with the hardware you buy, screws, manuals, brackets and so on.... you get it.

    I have been using a "system" where I store the cables for everything in the cardbox box the motherboard came in (if I was building a system). This works OK (for some stuff), but once you start moving motherboards around etc. it doesn't quite scale. Obviously a big issue with this is that it also means I need to store the motherboard boxes for a long period of time, which is also annoying because they take up a lot of space.

    In addition to this, I have some boxes with assorted cables, which as I am sure you can imagine is just a huge pile of "all the useless cables" around + a few useful cables.

    It all calls for a cleanup...

    I have been thinking about sorting the common stuff, like Ethernet cables in one big box, and then putting everything else into appropriately sized ziptie bags (which is then put into a box).

    As I am sure, that I am not the only who have been dealing with this, I thought I would like to ask you guys what you have done?
