Do not throw away your bread ties from the bread bags. I reuse them for opened frozen veggies, or anything that I open that needs a tie. Keep a stash in your kitchen drawer, you will be amazed how handy they become.

My family and I keep our "twist ties" and plastic bread pinching tabs.. AND our bread and newspaper bags.

We use the long newspaper bags for dirty diapers, veggie/meat scraps (to freeze until trash day to not let stink up and spoil in the indoor trash can), for sorting bagels (from a bagel shop nearby), and whatever use comes up!

I know other do the same to reuse or hopefully recycle various plastics and packaging materials!

I save my bread ties and have found one use for them. I use them to tie the Christmas lights to our fence. Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas!

Reuse bread ties. When you get out of the shower, put gel in your hair (or not!), twist hair around your finger and twist with a bread tie. Much more comfortable than rollers and hair dries quicker too.

My favorite uses for these cute little thangs. Please add your ideas. On my Rolodex, I tape bread tabs on the cards most often used. Write the person's name with permanent marker and it's a real time saver. This is one item I can't bring myself to throw away. I have a whole china teacup full, isn't that terrible? Other uses I've heard of are using them to scrape a teflon pan and to label extension cords. Does anyone have any other ideas for using these, maybe especially in craft projects? By Jayne
