There's a "best of both worlds" version of this: buy lots of the
short-length cables (1 to 6 feet) and "cut down" longer cables where
the distance exceeds the short cables I can buy.

I typically buy 25' cables each of which turns in to a pair of shorter
cables with one manufactured and one field-terminated end. I end up
with cables that are "just right" and well organized.

Harder to do with power cables but still somewhat functional.
