Okay okay, I'm probably not the first one to come up with this idea, but I thought I'd share it anyways, for anyone who hasn't seen the chip clip light! If you ever buy a pair of shorts or a skirt from one of the big chain stores like Walmart or Target, they don't remove the hangers, so you end up with em.


I was about to throw this one away, then thought, HEY! I sawed off the ends and....


Voila! Instant free chip clips! Great job! Haha, if chip clips disappear in your house like they do in mine, this is an epic discovery.

Ha! Good idea.

I always just use a clothespin, but I suppose if you don't hang your clothes on a line, there's no clothespins around. My other option is just to eat the whole bag of chips at one sitting.  Cheesy

*GASP* I wish I could hang my clothes on a line!!! It's much too humid here though. not to mention nowhere to hang a proper line... Someday, when I live in a house...

noitare I now know what it means when its too humid to line dry. I live in Ireland where I dont own a dryer, which seems mad considering how much rain we get, but I can often dry stuff outside, failing that on radiators or on a rack in the house.

I am on vacation in florida and happily rigged up a line on the screened porch, thinking things would be dry in a minute in this heat, to find them wet days later...obvious when you think about it really, but it hadnt struck me before.

Love the food clips though
