At work we have these things that we can hang the wires on, it's pretty nice and organized.
At home things like extension cords... hey those also have pegs to hang on. What do you know. ;)
I've got wire on spools, I guess, those are in the cabinet-o-tools-and-stuff.

I'm not sure I have other wires? Do people usually have lots of wires?

I don't think this is something I've ever thought about before...

Depends. Current-carrying wire: by type/function, then gauge. Decorative wire: by color, then gauge. Other wire: by location. Meaning, piano wire goes in the piano bench. Picture-hanging wire goes in the picture-hanging hardware can, wherever that may be at any given moment. And so on. I can't tell you about the garrotes, because then I'd have to kill you.
