#28 The clips that bind

Can you remember life before binder clips? I do, and I don’t want to return to those bad old days. That’s why I keep an assortment of them tucked away in my cataclysm survival kit.

Today we think of binder clips as a nifty little gadget for holding papers together. After the cataclysm, they’ll be ever more valuable, holding packages closed to prevent loss and standing in for failed resealers on your aging plastic baggies. Who knows, they might even fill in for sutures in a pinch.

And that’s just for starters. There are many other things you can do with binder clips. A lot more.

If you work in an office setting, you’re in luck. These little creatures tuck easily into even the smallest pocket or purse. If you took home just one binder clip a day, you’d have [5 days per week x 52 weeks =] 260 binder clips for your stockpile by the end of the year. If you can, get an assortment of colors too, to brighten those dreary post-cataclysm days. Even if you take off four sick days and a week’s vacation (as if!), you’ll still have 251 binder clips in your kit.

That is, if the cataclysm doesn’t hit before then.
