Clothespins can help you hold it together—literally. Even when you're not using them to dry hanging clothes, there's plenty of reason to keep them around. Don’t get upset about stale cereal; keep the bag shut with a clothespin. Don’t panic every time the tablecloth blows in the wind; clamp it down with a clothespin. Feeling blue? Glue a magnet to one side, and hang it on the fridge clipped to an important memo: "Don’t sweat the small stuff!"
