Chip Clip

Don’t have something to keep your chip bag closed once you open it? Look no further. A bobby pin will do the trick. Just place it over the fold of the bag and boom – the perfect chip clip.

Nail Holder

Use a bobby pin to hold a nail steady when you’re hammering it, so you keep your fingers out of the way and minimize any chance of injury.
