ReLo'd to BA from SD

in late 2006, relocated my angst, business, and social life to NoCal from SoCal ... just a 40-something chick in the 'burbs of the SF bay area who randomly posts about random topics ... the occasional quirky stories of dating (or not) at 40-ish, work-week cubeopolis frivolity, rambling musings on nostalgika, and the occasional introspective moments in life.(thanks for visiting! >p, b)

mcgayver or macgyver? ...

Bookmark and Share

problem ... the floor easels do NOT have the proper holders for displaying poster boards.

solution ... binder clips.

other considerations ...
  • diameter - diameter of easel leg determines whether a medium, large or uber-mega binder clip is used.
  • fashionista - we only had black clips. if this trend continues, may consider silver and brass clips
  • poster board - featherweight or weighty? featherweight works. weighty? not-so-much
alternatives sans binder clips? ... tape and pens/pencils (or chopsticks) to create the support. no easel; use floor or chair.

other ideas?
