      Bobby pins are like the Swiss army knives of the beauty world. These little tools serve many purposes — and not just for fixing your hair.

      Squeeze Out Toothpaste. Never waste a drop of toothpaste again with this clever trick: Secure a bobby pin on the end of the tube, then slide it up to push all remaining product toward the opening. Now your almost-empty toothpaste should last a few extra days!
