Taking a trip without your electronic devices can feel like hopping on a plane without a life vest under your seat; you may feel a lack of security. But with all those electronics also comes a tangled web of wires, adding to the bulk and weight of your luggage. Thankfully, there are a few helpful devices out there that can assist you in wrangling the wires and keeping everything organized and easy to access when needed.


The cord taco from This Is Ground is an inventive device that keeps your electronic cords compact and easily identifiable in your luggage. Made from 100 percent Italian leather, each order comes with three (or more) cord organizers that close and secure your cords with a metal snap.


The cord tacos vary in size, measuring from 3.25 inches in diameter for the regular version, to 3.75 inches for the supreme version, to 4.25 inches in diameter for the XL size. To use, fold up your charging cables, USB cables or ear buds and neatly tuck them into the cord taco, then secure with the metal snap.


A three-pack of cord tacos can be purchased on This Is Ground’s website for $25, five-packs are available for $30 and six-packs are available for $35. The tacos are available in 10 colors.
