Don’t Know What You Got

Don’t Know What You Got

Don’t know what you’ve got until it’s gone. Sad, but true. In our case, we don’t have any twist ties. Yep, those bendy little wires you find at the end of a loaf of bread or tying up a trash bag.

Or for tying up anything else, for that matter. Can’t count the number of times I wished one was available only to come up empty handed and grumbling because I inadvertently threw them away or just plain ignored them around the house.

So do this ahead of time – save your extra trash bag twist ties or make note of those from your bread bags or other sources. Trust me, they’ll come in handy. Or, just go buy some, which I never ever thought I’d have to do. Funny how I thought twist ties would always be available, like oxygen. Unfortunately, they’re not.

I’m off to the store.
