When making a slew of bibs for Niece, I kept getting confused between when to clip and when to notch. Also it was taking a TON of time on each individual bib. Then I spotted my pinking shears!

Brilliant!

Using your pinking shears, trim your seam allowance. Don't trim TOO close to your stitching, or you may weaken the seam.

It works like a gem!

I grew up with these and its still one of my best tools. Any curve that is not serged gets the pinking shear treatment.
