Here are just a few ideas to get you started.
I’m sure you can think of more uses, too, once you get going!
A Chip Clip
Who needs to spend money on cheap plastic chip clips? These clips secure chip bags better and keep your chips fresher for a longer period of time.
No more wasting money on extra plastic clips.
Card Holder for Kids
Does your family love playing games, but the little ones always drop their cards?
Using a binder clip at the bottom of the fanned-out cards will keep the cards together and make it easier for little hands to enjoy the game.
No more dropped cards all over the place. It makes card playing easier for little hands.
You will need to adjust the holder as the card game goes on, but it will make playing cards a lot easier.
Have messy cables under your desk or behind the TV?
Binder clips make a great cable catcher. Just gather your cables together and clip them. Now your cables are neater with no tangles!
Cover Your Razors For Travel
Getting ready for a trip takes time and planning, so why not make one thing easier?
A binder clip covers the sharp edge of any razors you are taking with you.
No need to worry when pulling your razor out of your bag. Your fingers are protected from accidentally grabbing your razor out of your bag and your razor is protected.
A Money Clip
A money clip is great to have, especially when traveling. Binder clips make a great money clip since the money will stay secure and not fall out.
You can also keep store loyalty cards with you as well.
This is one my son loves. He takes what he needs to school, which isn’t a lot, and it is organized in his pocket.
A Toothpaste Tube Squeezer
Yes, the dreaded toothpaste tube.
A binder clip is great to put on the bottom of the tube. As you squeeze the tube after use, just put the clip back on to keep everything in place.
A binder clip will keep the tube squeezed and you will always have the toothpaste at the top where you need it to be.
If you read a lot of books, then you are probably always looking for a bookmark. A clip makes a great bookmark for kids and adults alike.
Don’t lose your place and spend more time reading than looking around for a bookmark.
This is one of my favorite uses. I always have a pile of books on my nightstand. It helps me to keep organized.
Tea Bag Helper
I hate when teabags fall into my cup, and a simple clip can help with this. Just clip it on the side of your cup and it will hold the bag in place while your tea steeps.
As a tea drinker, this is a fun hack, but not one that is necessary. I prefer to wrap my tea string to the cup handle.
But HEY it is still neat.
Helpful Sponge Holder
If you want to let your kitchen sponges dry out, use a binder clip!
Just wring out the sponge and then stand it up, using the binder clip as a stand at the bottom.
VIOLA! I love this idea because it allows better airflow to dry out your sponge.
