I spent hours this morning trying to find the web site link that I found showing the most amazing use for the Midori P-51 Clips ) but I couldn’t find it. I think it came from Modern Daily Knitting but I could not find the original post. I am going to give them credit for it anyway.
I use Midori P-51 clips ($5.50 for a pack of 18, available in 10 different designs. I bought the bunny rabbits as they seemed the most “fibery”) to tame my circular knitting needles. When I am done knitting for the day, I slide a bunny clip over the cord of the circular needles. If the project is small enough, both ends of the cord can be slipped into one clip. If the project is larger or getting a bit difficult to tame, slide a clip on each end of the needle where the flexible cord meets the needle. This will keep your yarn from sliding off the needles as well as keep all your stitch markers in place. You can find other, fancy needle tip covers but a pack of 18 of these darling little clips which come in an array of colors tames half a dozen projects currently on the needles with clips to spare (or share!).
This is just one of many off-label uses I’ve found for office supplies. I also use binder clips to seal bags of snack foods and I keep a hand stapler in my tea drawer to close my fill-it-yourself tea bags. I’m sure I have other unusual uses for office supplies that I can’t remember at this moment. What are your life hacks with office supplies?
