Arduino, holding wires in without soldering?

So I am building/ working on my robot, http://letsmakerobots.com/node/24204 and I didn't want to solder the wires into my arduino. Whenever I moved robot, the wires come out of the pins. Currently I am using scotch tape, I know not very professional. I was wondering if there is any other way to keep the wires from coming out?

Buy male headers and solder your wires to the headers. You can then insert those into the arduino and remove them if you need to. If you keep the headers without breaking them into short pieces they friction fit in the arduino. For now I think this is the cheapest/easiest method. PS do not solder wires to the males headers while they are inserted into the arduino.
