Stop Headphone Wires From Tangling

I am constantly trying to untangle cords and wires.  I particularly struggle with headphone wires when I am carrying mine and the kids at the same time.  They all become entangled with one another. 

A simple (but it takes a very long time to complete – be prepared) solution is to wrap the cords in yarn.  Simply tie a knot where you are beginning and start wrapping over the tail of the knot.  I could not work with a full skein of yarn – I needed to cut a large portion off and make a ball which was much easier to work with.  The biggest difficulty is trying to hold everything tight the entire time.  I did step away from the project every now and then and to do that I clamped the loose area off with a paper chip clip.
