new-use tuesdays: paperclips

By: Mary Levitski
It would appear that people can be divided into one of two groups: Paper clipper or stapler. I am the latter (there's something so satisfyingly final about punching your documents together), but I've recently learned a few alternate uses for paperclips that threaten to sway me in the other direction. Here are three applications for the little metal fasteners you may not have considered before. paper-clips   1. Book marker: If you don't have your favourite bookmark handy, no need to crease those pristine pages by folding over the corner. A paperclip makes a handy stand-in. 2. Tape wrangler: Save your nails – and your sanity – by tabbing the end of a tape roll with a paper clip. No more frustrated scrutinizing to find that faint telltale line. 3. Zipper fixer: Why do zippers always seem to break when you're at the office (just before an important meeting, no doubt)? Avoid wardrobe malfunctions by feeding a paper clip through the loop of a broken zipper to make it fully functional again. Do you know an unexpected use for a paperclip? Leave a comment below.
