Binder clips are made specifically for stationery purposes. But repurposing is what I do. I like to find different uses for the little things in my home.
Binder Clips Fridge Organizer
I think you know how annoying it can be when you have a couple of bottles you want to keep piled on each other in the fridge or freezer, but they keep sliding and rolling all over the place.
Depending on the size of your binder clips, just one or a few binder clips can keep those bottles in place, and prevent them from making your fridge look like a disaster.
Just attach a binder clip to shelf/grill in your fridge or freezer that you are storing the bottles on. As you can see in the photo below, I did this trick in my freezer.
If you are using a large binder clip, one might do the job. But if you are using smaller binder clips, you might need to use a couple of them.
Binder Clip Tong
The reasons why you may need to make your own tong will vary from person to person. Maybe your favorite tong got broken, and you need to use one before you get the chance to replace it.
Whatever your situation and reasons may be, making your own DIY tong is quite possible and surprisingly easy. All you will need are two dinner forks and a binder clip.
Like in the photos here, you will need to insert the forks through both sides of the binder clip and fasten them properly. No special tools are needed to do this.
Depending on the shape of the forks, you may or may not need to bend the forks a bit. I used my bare hands to slightly bend the forks I used so that they fit in with the binder clip properly.
I must add that this DIY binder clip tong held up quite well. It was not too easy to pull apart. So I think it is safe to say that you need not fear that this tong will fail you.
