Cable Management When You Are Working From Home

Today I will be talking about getting all the cables, gadgets or technology, organized on your desk. Specifically, your desk at home.

Homes are no longer just places to relax and recharge, they are community centres, safe spaces, gyms, school rooms, art studios, and offices. There is a deep connection between an organized space and our mental health. And the current global health […]
