Nice! I usually roll the end under just a smidge.

Adrienne February 6, 2013 at 2:10 pm

That’s what I do, but I like this waaaaaaaaaaaay better!

This is pretty clever but seems quite impractical to me! The bread tie could very easily snag and get pulled off… now you’ve lost your tape end. Additionally, while using the tape you now have to keep track of the bread tie. I agree with Mama J; just fold the cut edge of the tape under onto itself and you have a ready made pull tab that won’t snag or fall off.

That’s a pretty good idea. especially for those of us that use duct tape often. Then again I’m a glass half full kind of guy not a glass half empty.

I like it! Makes sense and it cost nothing. You also don`t waste tape by folding over the end like I normally do and it is more visible then folded tape.

Cute trick and I agree with Axels points.

Very Very Complicated. :-)

Nice when you’re standing there and using the tape numerous times. That’s when it’d really beat folding the end under.

It’s always amazed me how many good ideas we never think of.
Whether you prep or not, you can always find a useful idea with the “Pack”

Who stole the bread tab?! Now the bread is stale! Croutons again tonight…
P.S. Bring Back The Wolf!!!

Twist tie – re-used from another loaf or from some box of baggies that gave me too many. I despise the plastic bread bag closure thingies. :-)

I may try them on tape, but they are otherwise recycled as soon as we open the bread. Spring clothespins are used for reclosing them and other things that need to be held closed, like the occasional potato chip bag.

TinLizzy February 6, 2013 at 2:54 pm

How cool is that? I have zillions of those lying around at any given time because nobody will reclose the bread wrapper. Nice!

Here’s a new acronym for some of us:
WDITOT – why didn’t I think of that
Like your idea.

I love these photo’s!

Now if I can just find one to work on a 2″ roll of duct tape.

I have used those closure tabs on spark plugs wires when needed, write the number on them and it makes it easier when putting that new cap on. Works great for other electrical work. Ever take that lunch break or answer the phone and wonder where that wire went when you get back to it?

The bread tabs are good for scraping off something stuck on the counter, table or even food stuck in pans. I keep a few on hand all the time.

Patty February 6, 2013 at 9:26 pm

I’ve also seen where these were used to label each of the cords on a surge protector. An easy and free way to organize!

We always used em as guitar pics ;)
