I find these on my counter all of the time. I can't seem to throw them away. I'm really not sure why. I think it's a distant childhood memory. Something like this: "Don't throw that away, honey, we can ALWAYS use those." I'm not sure what to use them for. I have a junk drawer with far too many of them.
I have used them to tie plants to trellises. That's the only thing I can think of. Sometimes I think they'd be good to tie cords, like cell phone chargers, into bundles, but rubber bands work way better.
Do you have the same problem? What do you re-use the bread ties for? Was this just my family that couldn't throw them away?
