Tie line is far superior for larger cables, and once you get used to it, just as easy.

    I've given up on velcro. Every cable gets tie line. One quick shoe knot and it's good to go (after winding over/under: of coarse)

    I agree w/ conanski. Nuts would drive me knots.

    I've been using Ziplock bags for small stuff (Like RCA cables, phone cables, USB cables, etc.) for many years. I keep them in a suit case.
    For light stuff like that, they last pretty much forever.

    The problem with cheap power strips is you probably run a higher chance of them catching on fire.

    I've had two of them catch fire, both were beige metal ones touting a $100,000 equipment protection guarantee/warranty. Now I only buy plastic ones, rack mounted ones, and long wall/floor mounted ones. But I'd probably trust a Furman metal power strip, since I've never had a problem with their rack mounted ones.
