They sure are. I've got them in all sizes, in the kitchen and in the garage.

Binder clips and zip ties hold my world together.

I must have at least 30 or more of these. Although I have always called them Acco Clips, their brand name. I have them in all sizes. Small enough for two sheets of paper to holding a large amount. Over the years I have done private work at home and can say I more or less have a complete office setup.

Just don't call them Staples, which in this case is their brand name.

The hardest item to find at Staples is staples, as most everything in Staples is labeled Staples.

thanks for your imputs. the other stubbern thing that always kicks my butt is charcoal bag 'zipper' openers...also on dog food, in which leads to a rageful kniffing that leaves dog food all over the floor

Another reason for several pairs of kitchen shears and big scissors! My hands no longer have the strength they used to, and those stupid strings on charcoal and dog food have never worked for me anyway.

I use scissors for those, too. Those 'zipper' string openers aren't worth a hardly and need scissors to get them started in the first place. LOL

Haha...posting the same time as Dawg.

Yep! I have scissors/shears in nearly every room and the garage, to help me with the 'easy open' packaging.

I have this little nasty streak in me. I refused to let those string openers get the best of me. You will also find them on a paper bag of potatoes. And that is the only kind I buy. You have to pull the right end. Of course it is always the other end of what you first pulled. Took me a long time to learn that little trick. The first stich is always locked.
