Save Your Wired Bag Ties

This Sparked Me!

Don't buy bag clips, clothes pins, etc, recycle your wired bag ties from the produce department or from bread bags that have them. You can reclose opened bags, etc using them and also use them for craft items to tie things together like bows, flowers, etc. I've used them to even organize loose pencils, pens, etc in drawers and cabinets. There are endless uses for them. Post your uses here too. You may know of some that I don't.

    I use them to wrap around computer and electronics cords that would otherwise tangle and get horribly messy, just like those velcro "cord organizers" they sell.

    Ties from the bread bags etc are great in the garden to hold up flowers or other plants to fencing or sticks, etc.

    I also save rubber bands from broccoli/asparagus/etc. and plastic produce containers. It's amazing what you get in packaging that is reusable!

    When I buy multiple duplicate keys, I thread them and a label through with a bread tie.. Been doing that for 45 years.
