I was digging around in my freezer this morning looking for frozen fruit so I could make a smoothie for my drive to the airport portable breakfast and thought “there has to be a better way to deal with all this stuff. I remembered a conversation about this from a few weeks ago with my friend, organizing guru Melinda Massie who had posted this gem a while back about using binder clips in the freezer.
I thought about three other uses I regularly have for binder clips that come in handy both at home and on the road:
- Binder clips are great for keeping curtains firmly shut so no bright light seeps through. (This is great in a hotel room when you need to sleep during daylight.)
- Clipped onto a piece of furniture or other fixed object to keep a charger cable from getting lost while plugged in. (I use one at home to keep my phone charger near my bedside table.)
- In the inside of my rollaboard to keep my toiletries at the top of my bag. (It’s clipped to the top end near the zipper so I can reach in and quickly pull them out at security.)
Beyond the intended purpose, what do you use binder clips for? Please share in the comments.
