For better or for worse, working from home has become a normal part of many Aussies' lives, even well after lockdown.

By now your setup should be pretty tight, but if your home office could use a little TLC, we've found a nifty little gadget that goes a long way towards keeping things nice and tidy - and the best part is that it won't cost you much more than a tenner.

This tiny tool eliminates that messy jumble or computer cables across your desk for just $11. We stumbled across it in Amazon Australia's best sellers list and it has loads of cheery reviews.

This silicone Cable Clip Organiser attaches discretely to the side of your desk and keeps all your chargers, cords and cables in order.

You get three separate organisers with seven, five and three slots, and all you have to do to set it up is clean the surface you want to place it on, and use the adhesive back to attach it.


"Absolutely in love with this product," one reviewer wrote, "It makes light work of all the charging cables that we all have lying around or over the kitchen bench. No more stepping on the cables."

"Very, very, very useful! Great for keeping all those little cables from falling down behind the desk," and "Soft-touch-plastic-like material feels nice and keeps an appropriately low profile," others said.
