I would like to hear of some organized method of storing extra patch cords.

I have some bins, about 12 inches deep and 12 inches wide and maybe 18 inches deep. each is wrapped with either velcro or bag tie.

Yep, the kind some people (not IT geeks!) have in their closets for their corporate leashes. Mount it in a closet or less visible space and drape your cables over it. They hang straight so there's no annoying coiling when their needed.

I watch for sales of those multi drawer storage bins, five or six drawer. Those are great because you can lable and see through them.

This is just the best image I could find. I've seen it available on-line for anywhere from $10 to $15. You can easily organize cables by length.

Unfortunately, I don't have one in every store, so I also carry coiled patch cords in various lengths with me in one of those little accessory bags.
