I love listening to my ipod.  I listen to music when I go to the gym.  I listen to books and my favorite podcasts while I'm out for a walk.  My ipod travels with me to lots of different places and gets shoved in one bag or another depending where I'm going which often means the earbuds get tangled up.  I love this simple, easy, and inexpensive solution.  Make a cord keeper for tangle free earbuds!

Just start with some wooden clothespins . . .

. . . and your favorite washi tape to make it pretty.

Add a piece of washi tape to one side of each clothespin.

Glue the clothespins together.  I used super glue.

Clip the end of the earbuds in one clothespin.

Wrap the cord around the clothespins and clip with the other clothespin.
Ta-da!

In just minutes you can enjoy tangle free earbuds!
Isn't that awesome?
