I try to use proper film clips at the top, since they are less likely to retain water drops. But clothes pins work find on the bottom of roll film - the end gets cut off so a water drop does not matter.
“Photography is a complex and fluid medium, and its many factors are not applied in simple sequence. Rather, the process may be likened to the art of the juggler in keeping many balls in the air at one time!”

Matt, those hooked ones would work for me.The problem with regular pegs is that i hang my negatives in a box and the regular pegs turn on the hanging wire. We do not have dollar stores here but we do got two dollar stores, i`ll check it out.
I recently saw some clips on ebay and bought them for super cheap. Stainless steel. They were originally supposed to be for badges I think, but they work perfect for film and prints. I never cared for wooden clothes pins. They can stick to the film since the wood absorbs water and swells. Ask me how I know. Plastic ones work fine. Anodized binder clips are also useful especially for heavier prints.
