Hack 1: Rolled Toothpaste Tube

Do you ever get annoyed that the tube of toothpaste won't stay rolled up? Simply roll the empty end up and use a binder clip to secure! No more wasted time or toothpaste. Each time you use a little more toothpaste, you can roll the tube tighter and clip.

Hack 2: Phone Stand

Make a stand for your phone using binder clips. This hack uses two binder clips, a small one and a large one, to create a DIY entertainment system. Fold the ends of the large clip back. Keep the smaller clip's ends together. Tilt the base of the smaller clip upwards. Clip the larger binder clip onto the smaller clip's ends. Then, rest your phone between the two clips. Now you can watch videos on your phone hands-free!

Hack 3: Tangle-Free Knitting

If your yarn always gets tangled while you're working on a knitting project, this hack's for you. You can easily prevent your knitting materials from getting tangled. Simply attach a binder clip to the side of your yarn container, then run the yarn through the metal ends. Now you can knit with ease!
