    The cord situation in my home office was driving me bonkers — between accidentally pulling down my entire monitor and cords getting caught in the wheels of my chair, it was becoming a borderline safety hazard. These little guys have made it so much easier to not only locate which cable I'm looking for, but also keep them off the dang floor. The sticky backing is pretty strong, which makes for an easy application. You get ten varying sizes in a pack, so I put one of these bad boys in every room in my house. Out of sight, out of mind.

    Get a pack of ten from Amazon Canada for $10.95+. Also available in yellow.

    20. And lastly, a pair of wireless headphones that'll keep you focused by blocking all outside sounds. Reviewers say the built-in mic and battery life gets them through a work day full of meetings.
