That should be loose wire, shouldn't it? Although, in my case, it would be lose wire. I have lost heaps in my room; this should be helpful. Good idea.

That is a great idea. I have A LOT of wires, and I always try to roll it up or something.. very hard. Great job.

I've been told to do this before, at a Job site. It only works if the Spool is still kosher. If the end of the wire gets pushed through any of the spooled loops you're in for a Knot-in-a-can.
