Picture of USB cord bracelet / Anti-tangling
This will show you how to make a bracelet out of a 3-foot USB cord.

It will fit a 6-7 inch wrist nicely, if you have a smaller wrist you can use a smaller cord.

You can also use this to keep any cords or wires from tangling (steps 1-8) it also shortens it to about 4th of it's original size.
