I use binder clips for everything! Not only do I use them for resealing food packages and holding paper, but for clothing as well. They are very useful for holding up too-long pyjama pants and minimizing waists that are too-big. I keep assorted sizes in a pretty jar in the kitchen so they are always on hand.

I have a twin bed and the bedspread does the "corner" thing. I have to go around the bed to open/close the sliding glass doors at least 4 times a day. This has tripped me some so today I spent 60 seconds fixing it.


With binder clips, I folded them over toward themselves and clipped the cross section, then the bottom just below it. Still pretty, now safe. Win Win!

The space is limited on my desk. So I have my laptop on a tray. This gives me space underneath for things that I don't need very often. It's where I keep my external hard drive, a supply basket, etc.


Today I decided to modify the tray just a bit to put up notes, lists, receipts and such. You would only need some tacks and the clips.

If you don't have this set up, and you most likely won't, you can do this on your wall, too. Just make sure the clip itself is facing you or you could put it on backwards. I did so it's easy to do.

This will help with things you want to hang up and get out of the way but see or get to easy.

Binder clips can be used for gluing items together. Some glues require pressing the items together for a few minutes. Binder clips are available in different sizes for different projects, help form a tight bond, and do not leave fingerprints or markings.

Squeezing a tube of toothpaste in the middle can make it difficult to get all the paste out later. Rolling the tube from the bottom and clipping it in place is a great way to ensure you use all the product with minimal mess.
