I also use them to close bags od frozen veggies from the super market when I don't use the whole bags. They are also good for hanging pants and long skirts in the closet so you don't get a "broken leg" crease and have to press before wearing. Having broken a fortune in bought chip clippers I much prefer the clothespins. (01/28/2008)
Nope, don't have a clothesline, so I use the extra-large paper clips. Work just fine. (01/28/2008)
I don't have a clothesline either but I still bought some to use for this purpose and other things too (01/28/2008)
I live in Urbana
nice to see someone closer to me on here (01/28/2008)
I use clothespins in the kitchen for everything. If it's an opened bag, it's definitely held shut with a clothespin - much quicker and less annoying than twist-ties and cheaper than commercial bag clips. When it breaks, hey, I've got 49 more. (01/29/2008)
