    I have a large container of them. I started labeling every cable that comes with things I purchase and got some zip lock bags to put them in.

    If I need one I don’t want to spend a half hour untangling it. You really need this explained to you?

    Yup. I went through the box of the dead a few months back and found a bunch of scart cables, adaptors, video camera leads and all kinds of obsolete nonsense. I even found a 1mb memory card for a Playstation. On the plus side I found a bunch of HDMI and ethernet cables that I must have bought and chucked in there for a rainy day.

    my random cables aren't in a box, just strewn about on a couple of different shelves.

    at work, it's a drawer full of random cables. and a bag filled with every adapter i may possibly need.

    I don’t throw any away. I keep them twist-tied so more organized.

    Also would you like to see my drawer full of various lengths of wire?

    I throw away the shit that doesn't matter. Most of the cables from 5 years are irrelevant now.

    Organize that shit man! What's the point of having it if you can't find anything?
