Oh the good ole binder clip. Who knew it could be used for so much more than just “binding” a few papers together? They come in different types and sizes…and more uses than you can imagine. I couldn’t believe what I found when I did a simple search on the google machine. I swear there’s an underground binder clip movement that’s sweeping the nation! Haven’t heard of it? Well, just check out these links below to see what I mean. I’ve even included a couple of pix on how I use them myself.
Lifehacker: Give them a piece of equipment, a computer app, an idea, or anything for that matter and they’ll hack the hell out of it for ya! These folks are dedicated to all things hacking (legally I think…smile).
Funny or Die Blog: My favorite is the beer stacker. Hey…they’ve got their priorities!
Wise Bread: Simple…frugal…smart.
Apartment Therapy: Who knew they could be decorative?
Fancy House Road: For the crafty-type.
The Clutter Diet: A practical take from a leading professional organizer.
And my personal favorite uses…
To keep cone-shaped coffee filters together.
To save my spot when pulling out files from a filing cabinet.
To keep wrapping paper together.
To hold my daughter’s cape together.
Or…to hold her makeshift Diva dress in place!
Do you have a cool use for binder clips? Send me a picture or drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org. Would love to see and hear your ideas!
