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!

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.

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.
