This requires no hacking, modifying of any sorts. This will not fray or short your wires from crimping nor will it void any warranties.

You can find these badge clips at pretty much any office supply store. Or if you're like me, you have a tons of these laying around from conferences and other events where free stuff is given out.

After using the other cord wrapper methods, this one was the most elegant and useful way for me. This will keep your cords tidy and keep them attached to your bag!

 Good one. Plus, it's not often I can memorize and entire Instructible in one reading.

 This is fabulous!  I've spent a lot of time in the last few days searching for exactly this kind of solution.  All I could find were gadgets (Not that I don't love gadgets for the sake of gadgetism, I do.  But...) priced between $1 and $20 that may have been a partial solution, or would create an additional problem (such as, ok, where do I stow the 3" diameter gadget on my person?)

Thanks for this!  I must have 20 of those bloody little clips about!
