I was out shopping for specific things yesterday and I ended up buying a bunch of other stuff I wasn't looking for! O:) way it goes. I came across these cool little things(be sure to watch the video on the site - it's kinda funny :P) at Big Lots for $2 each.
they seem to work as far as I can tell. can't be any worse than a twist tie, anyway! I got one in each color (green, orange, and red) but I don't have many bagged things in the kitchen to use them on, so one might end up being used for craft supplies or something("screws and bolts" ;) who keeps that stuff in a bag?? no one.) or maybe this would be a good topper for a fabric bag for kiddos to put marbles or coins in. I dunno, it seemed too nifty to pass up.
