Perusing David Scrimshaw's blog comments recently, it came to my attention that he has started to feel a little alone in his love of binder clips.
But but but! But I am seared to my core with sorrow that this should be so. How could he doubt the true and deep love I have for binder clips?
No, fear not, David Scrimshaw! You will never be alone in your love for this deceptively simple piece of office equipment.
I still very much love binder clips, but am running out of amusing ways to use them. I'm down to the completely utilitarian.
However, since utilitarian is what I've got, utilitarian is what you get.
Ages ago, I put one of those cheapie ikea railings under the shelf above my sink. I hung my fish scrubbie there, and that's also where the rubber gloves flop to dry in the winter. But one day, when there was no more room on the fridge to stick another ziploc bag to dry, I came up with this. It requires binder clips on the larger size, but the bags dry very well, since 1) the back of them isn't touching anything and 2) their bottoms tip back a bit, which makes them fall open a bit, which increases the air circulation and decreases the drying time.
