Everyone has that container or box of cords/cables that you have no idea what to do with. You don’t want to toss them because frankly, you don’t know what they go to or if you even need it. Thanks to some other bloggers, like CNet for helping me compile a great list of keep and toss.
Start by gathering all your cords and pairing them with the devices you use regularly. After that take the leftover cords and cables and use this keep and toss guide as a reference.
Toss: Apple 30-pin
Keep: USB 3 Micro-B
Keep: USB A to B
Keep: 3.5mm auxiliary
Keep: 3-prong Trapezoid Computer Power Cord
Toss: 2-prong Power Cord
Once you have all your cords decluttered and know what you are keeping. I would recommend using a photocarrier to organize them. Take the time to label the outside of the containers so you know what it is and you don’t have to go through this process again. Here is a link to the photo box.
