The word bungee chords for most people paint a picture of bungee jumping in their minds. The few who have bungee chords at home leave them lying around in the garage or house and use them once in a while to secure items.

Use bungee chords as a second panel holder
It does not make sense why a double curtain rod costs double the price of a single rod. This is very frustrating since the second panel does not usually focus the window treatment. Instead of buying a double curtain rod, you can work with a single rod and fit the bungee chords between the fittings and place your sheer panels on it. The bungee chords take a short time to fit and the front panels hide the chords to give a clean finish.
Use bungee chords to hold garbage can lids
However tight garbage can lids are, they eventually lose their grip and become lose with time. They easily get knocked over by strong winds which mean garbage gets strewn all over. If you come from an area that is prone with raccoons, they can be very annoying and they do all they can to get to garbage bins to scavenge for food. Use bungee chords to fasten garbage can lids securely to keep the garbage from being blown off or get raided by critters.
