If you find yourself carrying around loose batteries all the time, here’s an organization tip: store batteries in ammo boxes.
Michael Page discovered this clever “hack” recently, and posted the advice to DIYPhotography’s Flickr group:
The “big bore” rifle cartridge box is the perfect size for storing and carrying AA batteries, and “small rifle” is exactly right for AAA.
An easy way to keep track of which batteries are depleted and which are fully charged is to simply flip the empty ones upside-down in the box.

If you’re like me, then you have a bazillion cables lying on and around your desk for various gadgets, including laptops, cameras, cell phones, Bluetooth headsets, and the like. Here’s a tip for organizing all those cables to always have them neat and ready for action: use binder clips.
You can attach the clip to the side of your desk, and use the loop handles to hold your cables. When lifted up, the handles provide a large enough opening for most cables to slip through, and when closed, the loop holes the ends of the cable neatly in place.
