    I have seen some folks use nail polish to color code their chords. Just a small dot on top of the cord that plugs into the wall outlet, and then that same color painted on the corresponding electronic device's cord input location.

    Had same problem. Now as soon as I get new charger, I use a label maker with tiny font to label cord at device end. If the cord is detachable, I use electrical tape from dollar store to tape the cord in plug in. Use a figure eight taping as I found it to work best.

    I have a label gun that spits out tape. It even has different fonts and sizes. I type in my label text press a button and it spits out perfect labels and even cuts the strip. Then peal off back and stick to whatever needs to be labeld

    Write with a magic marker on a bread tag (the tag that holds the bread bag closed ) what the cord is to, and then put the tag on the cord next to the plug. Then thread it thru the medal things on the large black clip, you pinch together to open the black clip with. Then you can clip the black clip to the edge of the desk or whatever would work for you.
