Sometimes just "glazing over" a bit and looking at the letters, you can read them; (even if first or last letters are "wrong"). A technique my mother taught me was just to write all the letters out in a jumble (not a line, randomly but fairly close) then your brain tries to "follow" the letters to make sense of them. Sometimes seems to work for me!
I've started switching all to bluetooth (printer, keyboard, mouse), wifi, and HDMI (usb as a last resort) which has cleaned up my cabling somewhat. Although right now I'm stuck on ethernet because my wifi dongle isn't working with Ubuntu this time (was last time *shrug*)
I really must do something about it all, but ... the trouble is that I used to have a UPS which had IEC female, so when it died I used standard IEC lead to connect the IEC males that went to the kit instead of ripping it all out and wiring it properly. So I have a rats-nest of mains, another of CAT5, another of USB, ...
And a sh*t load of dust that I don't dare go near because I know something will stop working if I do, and it's dark down there ...

Split loom tubing / corrugated sleeving . McMaster Carr in the US, or your local Industrial electrical supply. Spiral wrap ( sleeving ) works very well, but at 2 turns per inch on small diameters it's slow. The zipper stuff can be nice.
But, I'd just use velcro, 3/8" wide roll cut the ends on a diagonal - it makes it easier to wrap and to remove. And you get to tie to legs... to hold things in place. ( We cheated and used large binder clips to dress cables to the metal desk. )
