I also use them to hold pens, or other things, and then you will have a 'holder'. They can then hook onto other things like a cup hook or a nail. If you really want to be creative, you can even decorate them with fabric, ribbon, a bow, or paper to go with your home decor. :-)

Being disabled, this means bending over in half to pick up the cord from the floor where it inevitably lands after I attempt to throw it on top of the tower.
I was retrieving the cord today when I saw a binder clip on the floor under the under support of the table. It hit me that I can hook it on the clip rather than hunt or bend over to find it.
Now, I know that most of you won't have my set up, table style or need. But, if you do, I hope this helps. It is within reach and now I don't even have to unwrap it but once to reach the camera.
PS: Sorry the shot isn't steller, but you get the picture - no pun intended

This also works in an office for paperwork, craft books, invoices, warranty pamphlets, etc.
Hope this helps!

I also use them to keep frozen vegetable bags tightly closed. The freezer does not hurt them and they are still easy to use. They are easier to use and handle than twisting wire.

If you have any of the metal binder clips, use those. They will not pop off, they will grip tighter than any plastic device ever will, and if you fold the corners of your bags over before you roll the top down for closure, it gives a nearly air tight "seal". Also, they are cheaper than chip clips, take up much less space and can always be used as office supplies.

A great way to re-close packages of frozen foods such as French Fries and large packages of veggies is with the Metal Binder Clips that are available in the office supply stores. I usually just cut a corner off the package, then fold it over a couple times and fasten it with the binder clip. I use the large size.
