    I like the tape end tip, and all the others.
    I use mine for scraping off food on the stove and counters, especially the stove when the heat of cooking has "baked" it on. And getting price stickers off items, and labels off containers.

    Speaking of cords, here is an old tip that amazed my family and friends. I didn't think this one up but have used it for years. I save the cardboard tube from a roll of toilet tissue and use it to store my appliance cords inside. I can write on the cardboard which appliance the cord goes with. Saves a tangled mess in the drawer. Even keep the cords neat for appliances that do not have a detachable cord.

    Any body that does hybridizing flowers uses them to mark the cross. People in my AHS email robin having been talking about finding a source to order more than 1000 of them to use in future hybridizing seasons. Daylily Hybridizers introduce many new flowers for sale every year in the south, in the North it takes about 3 years from seed to selling the flowering plant.

Can't think of more right now, but I use them a lot! Thanks for the tip about electric cords!

    What great ideas! Thanks for sharing!

    Some really neat ideas for those little things. I'd never thought of most of them. TIme to re-thing some things, no doubt~

    If you're a knitter, they make great bobbins for managing small lengths of yarn, especially for the "tail" at the
    beginning of a project.

    If you have a pair of flip flops and the toe tab breaks or is too loose, use one of these bread bag tabs on the toe tab to hold until you can get home with your broken shoe.....

    What works good for this is the little plastic bar that comes with an individual snack pack of crackers and cheese spread.

    I have also used this trick for years....works great!!

    Another use for the bread tags....use them to cover the holes in a flower pot when you are potting something...the dirt doesn't leach out when you water the plant.
