We have a "go bag" of stingers and most of the audio stuff lives in another "go bag" so they're both ready for field shoots, which is 98% of what we do, at least in video.

As our systems have grown I began by "decorating" the stand that holds the fireplace implements in my office with cables which weren't in use at the time. (It seemed OK as the fireplace isn't used much either.) When space ran out on that the decorating continued on a nearby guitar floor stand. (Sorry guitar you have to stay in the case.) Also have a few drawers filled with various like items, ie.- drawer of power supplies and their cables, drawer of USB and Firewire cables, adapters, un-used hubs, etc. So, no. I don't have a very good system. Certainly NOTHING as organized and sensible as John's.

The bigger issue is boxes in our storage area overflowing with things like SCSI 1 & 2 cables, cables for monitors long gone, cables for our old network… you get the idea. Junk. Junk that's hard to throw out when thinking, "Jeezz, I spent a fortune on all this stuff once upon a time." But should become easy to take to the re-cycling dump when I admit that SCSI isn't coming back and we'll need that storage space for what we're using now when everything starts getting hooked up with Thuderbolt cabling.
