I wanted to show you a great little find I found!! I bought these a while back at Walmart, they are suppose to be wine glass markers--- you tie them around the stem of a wine glass so that yu don't get your glasses mixed up at parties. But I bought them thinking that they would be GREAT twist ties!! They come in a package of 12 and were around $3.00. I use them for everything--- they are so much better than trying to find one of those paper covered wire twists, that don't last very long.
you will find 100 uses for them.... I use them to close all my bags of "stuff" but they are really handy to wrap around your appliance cords too. They are made of silicone and are re-useable. I love when I find a GREAT IDEA!!
