Use a Binder Clip to Hold Your Grocery List in Your Cart

Use a Binder Clip to Hold Your Grocery List in Your Cart: "This came about because I'd started carrying around a mid-sized paper clip in the inner pocket of my winter coat late last year. I like having useful stuff on-hand, like hand sanitizer or a mini Leatherman, and added the binder clip as an afterthought one day. Then, one day, while trying to either make my printed shopping list easy to yank out of my pocket, or trying to anchor it inside the top basket without falling out of the two gaps they create for children's legs, I felt the binder clip in my pocket and thought, what the hey."

Hell Yes! This is the kind of usefull stuff that I expect from lifehacker. Simple. Free. Useful tips and tricks - HACKS - that make life easier.

Isn't the easy life what we are all looking for? Granted, fishing around for the grocery list in your pocket isn't a big stumbling block to the easy life, but every little bit helps. And, I LIKE looking cool in the supermarket.

Doing stuff like this makes me feel like "Hey, I design my life. I can change. I'm not stuck in a rut that is railroading me towards an unknown or unexamined life-goal."
