I clip adjacent strings also from time to time but I know it's because my bow to a wee bit too much angled, muscle memory is not totally there yet. I found out that looking at the contact point of the bow on the strings helps me not clip on other strings and also bow straighter.
KS, I'm happy your trick works for you! Bouncing bow is so annoying! Just relaxing usually works for me along with bow tension.

Diane - I tried the exact same thing a few months ago and it did stop the bouncing, but then I felt disoriented to what string I was on. I then started to dig into the strings just a bit more (that along with not too tight a bow) and not only did I avoid bouncing, but I just got a better sound out of the strings.
