"A rubber band is powerful, powerful. . .."
- "Rubber Band" Shonen Knife
Anyone that knows me, knows that I can't live without safety pins. I've probably had a few posts on here that are somewhat related to the glorious safety pin. And at any given time, if you check my desk drawer or my purse, you are certain to find at least one of these life necessities floating around somewhere. My mother has often said that I hold my life together with safety pins (thanks, Mom!). And as sad as this all may sound, it's pretty much the truth.
As wonderful as safety pins are, I wanted to take this opportunity to share a new love of mine: the rubber band!
I have been using these stretchy little gems in some very handy ways as of late. Check it out. . .
|Who needs to buy fancy hangers to help |
keep the clothes from slipping off?
Rubber bands will do the trick
on any ol' hanger! Personally,
I think they look kinda neat.
|I love how a simple rubber band|
will keep all the pens organized in our
kitchen counter "bill box".
Oooh, and look! What's that
holding together packets of
vegetable seeds? :)
And rubber bands are so cheap! In fact, I don't even buy them. I just save the ones that bind together my produce (all the bunches of carrots, heads of lettuce and florets of broccoli in the market are held together with rubber bands).
And so it seems I am now holding my life together with safety pins AND rubber bands! Whether or not this is progress, remains to be seen.
