Also your monitor needs power (if you use an external one). Likely, you're dealing with a variety of different cables like multiple USB's, docks, lights, mics, and maybe even webcams. So there's really no way to avoid the risk of cable clutter. For my desk I mounted 2 power strips (one on the bottom and one on the top) to the back and underneath my desk. I used one power strip to plug in things that I don't plan on unplugging regularly like my monitor, laptop charger (I have an extra one for when I travel), etc. The other I use for things like my light, additional phone chargers, and things that I may need to plug in temporarily. All of the wires are neatly hidden in a cable management box also located under my desk. I didn't want all of my cables and wires just hanging randomly so I collected them and wrapped them in a cord protector that extends from one end of the power strip to the base of where ever the cables are plugged in.
