We all need some hacks in life to keep things sane, right?! How much better when these hack-tools can actually be used to solve various needs. This is the beginning of my new December Instagram series.

Using my links may keep me caffeinated. See my Disclosure policy here.


We all need them, right?

I mean, hacks can literally save us money, some can save us time. What would we do without our hacks?

Using binder/metal clips & rubber

bands in my home: Hack #1

Throughout the month of December I’ll be sprinkling into my Instagram posts a series of life and home hacks that I’m utilizing and maybe a few I find along the way worth sharing.

I’ll be exploring my home in search of my hacks and taking you along for the adventure!


I love having a variety of binder clips in different colors and sizes. They’re wonderful to have because they last so long and can be used over and over.

I also have metal clips similar to these (also pictured below) that I use. I have the dark ones in use that you’ll see in my Instagram pictures for today.

I also use these kind of clips (see below) but not usually for food. You’ll see two ways I am using these right now in my home if you follow me on Instagram (my link will be at the end of this post).


We use rubber-bands all the time in our home and they do not last as long but they are so cheap. The rubber does eventually break down over time. However, you can get a variety bag with a lot of them and they can last for years.

I use hacks in my home for a variety of reasons and they do work into my organization, home decor, saving me money, and probably cover other needs I’m not thinking of at the moment.

This is the storage bin with drawers I use. I bought two of them and have them stacked on each other. I labeled them with a label maker. I love how organized they keep me and the little things.
