For a handy way to have string at your fingertips, try this. Hang a cheap funnel as a dispenser, with the roll of twine or string in the top and the end running down through the spout. This is nice for kitchen, basement, garage shop, or garden. Just keep a small knife handy to cut the twine or string. This will also keep you from having tangles and knots in the string or twine. It might even work for yarn for knitting or crocheting.

I don't know if it matters whether the funnel is metal or plastic, huh? Well this is a great tip, especially for the person who uses string a lot. I was also thinking some sort of empty container that the ball of string or twine would fit in and have the end coming out the lid of the container, like punch a hole in a screw on lid. Or a box with a hole punched in the lid.
If you do the funnel, might be handy in a pantry or closet. Perhaps too, hang a pr of scissors right next to it! (01/25/2007)
