CLEVER USES FOR BINDER CLIPS
Squeeze toothpaste. Get every dab out of the tube by rolling the end down and clamping it with a clip
Prop a Sponge. Your sponge will dry faster and collect fewer germs if you use a binder clip flat side down with the handle open to stand the sponge up instead of laying it flat on the counter.
Transform a coat hanger. Turn a plain one into a skirt or pants hanger by clipping the waistband of the garment to the bottom rod.
Fashion a Keychain. Detach the silver handle from the clip, thread keys through, then resecure. It can also double as a money clip.
House Plants that WOW!
“Wavy Gravy”- ruffled leaves that look like a brittle version of curly lettuce. Deep green leaf has a white dusting of powder like hairs, giving it substance. The cut flower industry likes the fancy foliage for bouquet accents. And to top it off, tall daisy like flowers rise above the leaves.
“Variegated aloe”- has strong architectural presence. Visually sharp, but spines are not as aggressive as some of its kin. Has riveting yellow stripes running the length of each “arm”. In summer, it prefers indirect light of an east or west-facing window rather than full sun; during winter, move it to a south-facing window.
