Use Office Space More Efficiently With Binder Clips

We're always keen to see handy ways to use binder clips. Reader alisneaky makes use of a clip to create extra filing space in thin air.

Here's what he did in his own words:

Screw a foldback clip to your desk to create a document holder which is off the desk. That means you're using space that you never had — air space!

That won't work with enormous heavy documents, but is great for a handful of papers you need to refer to. In a similar vein, alisneaky has also rigged up speakers upside-down in the top part of his desk, making better use of the available space:

Neither hack is complicated, but both represent a neat way to get more use out of a standard generic computer desk. Thanks alsisneaky!


    I too have used binder clips in the office.

    With the cold weather in Melbourne that makes a jacket a necessity, there was no where to hang it near my desk and I was tired of it falling off the back of my chair all the time.

    The book case next to my desk is the perfect height to hang it from but I had no way to do it till I saw others use binder clips to hold power cords etc from desks.

    So a trip to the stationary cupboard and a few seconds later I now have a coat rack which can be taken away once the weather in Melbourne decides to get warmer!
