5 Ways to Use Clothes Pegs

I’ve always loved clothes pegs, maybe because I loved washing day when mum would hang the yummy smelling laundry out on the line, (ha, sometimes when I tell stories of my childhood Brock asks me what century I grew up in!). Anyhow, these are super versicle little tools, here’s how they I like to put them to use.

As a place setting:

Helping to organize my ribbon ends:

 As a label for my plants:

As a tag on a gift:

Plain old chip clip, or in this case marshmallow:

A pack of these run about $1…holler, I can’t think of any think more handy for that price.

How do you put yours to use?

    You have forgotten that you once used them as an aid to beautify your profile (like the sisters in Little Women)!

    How about some of us just stringing up a good old piece of rope and pegging out our clothes to dry for an hour, before the sun gets too high in the sky, and could do damage.

    Did you know that our mattresses need that sun on them at least once in the year, we called it airing them back in the day, but now it has been scientifically proven that the sun will naturally kill some of the unmentionable things we won’t care to talk about (mites) if we make a habit of airing our bedding.

    In Switzerland, you will see the duvets hung over the upstairs balcony rails each morning in the spring, and summer – then early afternoon they pull them in and make up the bed! Rewarding when night time comes and you climb in to the fresh smelling scent.

    Thank you for the reminder do all things fresh, simple and very affordable. The Old ways, and ideas are certainly making a come back!
