Do you see these little things? 

Do you know what they are?



They're the little white plastic things that close the end on bags of produce and some breads.

Thanks to a recent tip from a friend, I'll be using them to mark rows while working on crocheting projects.  How about that!!!!

What would you use them for?

  3. I've used them for pan scrapers in the past. Don't get too many of them now as the bread I occasionally buy has a twist-tie.

    1. Rozy, I would have never thought of that for a use for them!!! More and more breads are using the twist ties, I'm seeing the little white things more on bagged produce.

  4. We use them to label power cords, both stored cords and the maze of cords connected to computers and TV equipment. You can write on them with a permanent marker to identify what each cord is for & they slip over most cords easily. Marsha

  5. I have not tried this but have seen in the Tightwad Gazette that you can melt them with the tip of your hot glue gun to repair cracks in plastic such as in a laundry basket. I can picture burned fingers though so take care!

  6. They make great clothes pegs (pins) so I keep them for when we are camping. And in a pinch they'll act as a stopper on thongs/flip flops as my darling husband found out a couple of years ago when we were away and his thongs broke. The can be used as file tabs too. So many ways to use them when you put your thinking cap on :)
