So what is sooo special about these little things called clothespins??? They serve multiple uses in my house! Not only do I use them for their intended use--hanging clothes or diaper covers to dry, I also use them for....
- holding rubberbands! I clip a clothespin to the side of my bill slot on my desk and then hook rubberbands over the pin.
- holding receipts! I superglued a magnet onto one side of the clothespin and then stuck the clothespin on the side of my fridge. This way I have a place when I or hubby come in from shopping, we can clip the receipt there and the receipt doesn't get lost and forgotten before it is registered on the computer checkbook(better known as Quicken!).
- holding chip or cracker bags closed so that they don't go stale!
You can usually find a bag of 50 or more at your local dollar store!
I am sure that there are more ways that I could use these little inventions! What are some other ways that you use these little inventions?
