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.

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!

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?

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.

I am trying to find the directions to make crosses out of bread ties. I have seen them on line, but there are no instructions. Can anyone offer any help?

Pull out that stash of bread clips you have been saving for just the right project. Some ball chain and an assortment of various colored clips is all you need to make this fun necklace.
