My Ghetto Fabulous Clip-It Up

When I first saw the clip it up I thought it was the perfect product. Then I saw the price tag. And the footprint. And thought well shucks I don't have any spare counter space. So low and behold several people came up with ingenious work-arounds to this solution using various easy to find and cheap products like curtain rods and rings.

I thought my problem was solved until I started counting how many things I wanted to hang and how much even the cheapest Walmart curtain rings ran. So I had to improvise and came up with this Ghetto Fabulous version.

The rod is the Bygel rod from Ikea for $2.99 and several boxes of jumbo paper clips. Total cost for my solution under $6! That's less than 1/10th the price of just the base clip it up!

I apologize in advance for the poor quality photos but the lighting in my little closet isn't the greatest.
