Practical Ways You Can Use a Paper Clip

Are you ever jealous of those really handy, practical people that can fix any problem? You know, your neighbor who built his deck, fixed your TV, and manually replaced his old iPhone screen? Well now you too can become a handyman just from using paper clips! Here I will detail a few practical things to do with a paper clip.

Zipper Pull

Light bulb/ceiling fan string extender

Why do so many light bulbs and ceiling fans have strings tailored for giants? Have no fear! With a few paper clips, you can fashion a chain link to attach to your abnormally short ceiling fan string. Remember, you don't have to use standard, metallic paper clips for this project. Get creative by using some awesome, color paper clips or even some Papercloops!

Money Clip

Paper clip money clip > wallet.
Why? Because when you lose your wallet, you lose all your cards, pictures, money, etc. When you lose this money clip, you lose 40 bucks and a piece of scrap metal.

If you don't have a cute rabbit to open your letters, then just use a paper clip! Don't bother spending money on a fancy knife letter opener.
