Step 1: Materials
Empty spool of thread
Empty (or near empty) tape dispenser
Headphones / other wires
Step 2: Bread bag tie
Bread bag ties come in lots of different sizes, so choose one you like and if (like mine) it needs a larger hole, give it a snip with some scissors. Viola! Instant tangle-free method!
Not the most aesthetic though.... So let's try another method.
Step 3: Spool of thread
Wrap it around the spool ear-buds first and then loop the end around the ear-buds before sticking the end down the spool for security and storing away.
Easy, but not very accessible afterward (takes 15 seconds to unwind). Let's try another method.
Step 4: Tape dispenser
So all you do is take the empty roll off and take the paper out to begin wrapping. Just wrap it around until it's secure and it makes for easy storage.
OR.... there's another way, which is pretty cool. Let's try the next one.
