I'm trying to knit the slippers in SNB Nation and I'm having a bit of trouble understanding what I should do with the last stitch after binding off because it says not to break the yarn. Do I leave it on the needle as a starting point when I start picking up stitches?Huh? Any help would be greatly appreciated thanks alot!

What is the next step after you bind off?

I don't own the book, but it sounds similar to building a pouch with a flat bottom.
You bind off the stitches so that your cast off edge matches the cast on edge (and it gives it stability), then you use the yarn still attached to the bottom piece (at the bind off edge) to pick up stitches all around it. Then you typically continue knitting in the round, around all the sides of the bottom.
