Don't Throw Them Away - Be Frugal

What does frugal have to do with twist ties?

Meaning of the word Frugal from Wikipedia:

"Frugality is the quality of being frugal, sparing, thrifty, prudent or economical in the use of consumable resources such as food, time or money, and avoiding waste, lavishness or extravagance."

One of my favorite motto's is:

"Waste Not Want Not"

There are many useful things you can do with twist ties. You know the ones that come in a box of garbage bags, or are included with certain types of freezer bags. You can also find them in your grocery store to twist tie bulk food, bread, or produce.

I very rarely use them to tie the garbage bags as i find it easier to simply tie a knot in the top of the garbage bag when it's full. I used to toss the twist ties out until one day when I was trying to get a plant to stand up tall in its pot, and thought, shoot I wish I had one of those twist ties as it would sure come in handy about now.

Twist ties can be purchased

For an art project you may want to purchase twist ties rather than reusing old ones. They do come in an array of bright and vibrant colors.

Some of the many ways to use or reuse twist ties

  • I have these really cool corn cob holders/skewers that somehow end up all over the drawers. To keep them all together and in one place I thread them with a twist tie. Of course this won't work for all skewers but for the type I have the ties work great.
  • In a pinch a twist tie will work hanging Christmas ornaments on the tree. If you happen to have colored ties such as a green, even better, as it will blend right into the color of the tree.
  • In the garden twist ties can be used to stake tomato or other plants.
  • Slip a twist tie through a key and hang the key on a hook inside a cupboard or on a wall. Hide a house key somewhere in a garden shed for family members.
  • Easily fix a lost or broken metal zipper pull.
  • Use to close snack food bags, plastic bags that are going into the freezer, and of course bread bags.
  • Keep those electrical cords neat and tidy. You may have to twist two together but they will work.
  • Attach signs such as "Beware of Dog" to a chain link fence.
  • Picture hangers are something we don't always have handy, and a twist tie can easily be made into one and attached to the back of the frame.
  • For those that do arts and crafts - keep your beads strung together and easy to find.
  • Kids love to play with twist ties and they can be used to make pretty little flowers or other creative projects.
  • If you hand out candy bags at Halloween use twist ties to close up the bags.
  • Use for birthday party grab bags.
  • Balloons can be attached together at the neck (carefully).

Twist Ties for Drink Tabs

One of my sons has been collecting Monster Energy Drink tabs for a tab promotion. They are offering backpacks, hoodies, beanies, hats, and t-shirts. Once you've saved up anywhere from 30 - 75 tabs you can trade them in for one or more items that you'd like. Rather than the tabs being all over the place I strung them all together.

      Dzy, I was raised by my Scottish grandparents and it was always said to me ... Waste not, want not. What a great idea for the bread tabs. I've used them in a pinch for tabs in books such as expense books. You can write on them with a marker to easily get to a page section within the book.

      Sometimes you can get extra-large ones, like for the lawn/leaf bags, and one time, I used one of those to cinch up the top of my shoe when the lace broke, and tying it where it broke left it too loose on my foot.

      I was raised by Yankee parents who lived through the Great Depression in the 20's, so grew up hearing the slogan, "Use it up, wear it out, make it do or do without."

      I also save the little plastic tab closures from bread bags...I don't always use them, but I did come up with a possible neat use for them. If any elementary schools still have the kids do paper mache projects, those tabs (which come in several colors) would make GREAT scales to glue onto a paper mache dragon......

      Nice tips. It seems I always have a bunch of twist ties left over in my kitchen drawers since they do not all get used for packaging things into baggies. Twist ties are very handy when gardening and I love your idea to use them for holding up plants like tomatoes.

I also use them to keep electrical cords tied up. I'm sure I still have some Christmas decorations with twist ties on them too! Twist ties are a very versatile little tool! Voting up and useful. :)

      Great hub. When I started buying the different garbage bags - the ones that have the tie thing right in it already, I realized how much i missed twist ties. Because I never had them anymore. So, when I finally got some garbage bags that had them I surely put them aside. Mainly, I use them for my bread bags because I can't stand the plastic ones they put on now. Or I use them for snacks. Great hub! Next time I reach for a twist tie I will be thinking about you!

      Hi, Susan. Just like Kelly, I keep a supply of assorted and varied in length twist ties in my silverware drawer and have used them to fasten electrical cords together. I even have different colors: black, red, white, silver so they will be less conspicuous when serving their twisty purpose. Voted up, m'luv.

      I use them to tie the Christmas lights into a nest coil. They never come out of the box all tangled with all the other lights. I can see how big the light set is and get the right size for when I am putting Christmas lights up. I also use them on extension cords and lamp cords that are too long. Looks much neater than a big pile of cord hanging all over. The rabbit can't get to them to chew them up anymore either. I used to use them to keep the door on the hamster cage shut. They used to escape all the time and we would be hunting for hamsters all over the house. The boys are grown now, so no more hamster hunting.

      I save all the twist ties and usually have a good selection around. You had some great new ideas for using them! I've used them for wrapping around coiled Christmas lights to keep them from getting tangled. I also roll up the wires for chargers and other electronics cords clip them neatly together with a twist tie so that they don't turn into a tangled mess in the drawer. Spare keys can be kept together, too! Great idea for a hub, and useful, too!

      I don't use the ties but I don't throw them away either as I am kind of lazy. This results in a drawer that is positively brimming with the things.

      At one point the dog went after the cat...the cat went over the lamp...the dog went through the lamp. Sure enough...47 twist ties later...we had a lamp that had a shade back on it and didn't make us feel like we were being grilled by hostile detectives under a glaring bulb. I've also used them recently to string all my measuring cups together so I have them all together when I do my occasional cooking attempt.

      Great list!
