Tools of the Trade: Binder Clips
Ahh Binder Clips, those unsung heroes of the office supply world. And like bank tellers, watches and print journalism they are rapidly being rendered obsolete. But before that happens let’s take a moment to celebrate these mighty tools of paper storage.
Besides attaching 34 of them to your face, what other uses do Binder Clips have?
The often fatuous Apartment Therapy suggests using them to organize take out menus. But really, in these hard pressed economic times who has that many take out menus littering their kitchen and exterior doorknob? Oh sure I do my share of taking out, but I don’t need a menu to order a chicken caesar salad!
Personally, I like using Binder Clips to keep my pita chips from going stale. I also use them to keep all my various cards that should probably go into a wallet all nice and orderly. Though if I have so many cards that I need a binder clip to keep them all orderly, perhaps I ought to sort through them and discard all those expired Kohl’s $10 coupons and reward cards to places that have long since gone out of business. I see you, Eckerd’s!
