Essential Tools for Small Business: Binder Paper Clips

When we first pinned a binder paper clip idea on our “office tips and tricks for cords and wires” board at Pinterest.com/SmallBusiness, we discovered we’re not the only office filled with paper binder clips that are doing something other than binding paper. It’s still our most re-pinned photo ever. Here are just a few of the endless number of ways you can use paper binders around the office. Except for Duct tape, it could be the most versatile tool in your office.

1. A cable, wire and cord organizer
