When buying bread, look at the twist tie and it will tell you how old it is ... Each day has a different color, as follows: Monday = Blue, Tuesday = Green, Thursday = Red, Friday = White, Saturday = Yellow
By Brenda Cole
Editor's Note: I had never heard of this tip before. I wonder if this system is specific to one grocery store or chain or universally used.
When doing a craft that uses short lengths of fine wire and you happen to run out, you can use the wire in the twist ties.
Hold twelve strips with a pliers over the sink and light the end with a match. When it burns to the pliers, let them fall into the sink, the rest burns off.
When buying produce, be sure to use the ties the store provides. These work great for tying things together, wires, food bags, etc. I can always find a use for them.
What do you use with your twist ties?
