The Binder Clip
I have a thing for fancy binder clips. Target and Michaels both have brightly colored variations that get me every time because (a) they’re cheap and (b) I’m weak.

So if you don’t have a stash of funky clips of your own, get some fancy duct tape and combine two of the greatest forces in the universe. Wallow in that accomplishment and then go organize your power cords as an office Zen Master.
Hey, small accomplishments are still accomplishments.
