Here’s a solution: Store them individually inside empty paper towel rolls. Fold the cords neatly before slipping them inside the cardboard tubes, where they’ll stay contained and untangled until you need them again.

You can even use a marker to label each tube, indicating what the cord is used for, such as “holiday lights” or “floor lamp.”
