When I buy a loaf of bread at the grocery store, I never think much about the bread clip that keeps my loaf fresh. In fact, I usually toss the clip aside as soon as I open the bag because it’s hard to reattach once removed (and it doesn’t help that I’m lazy).

Bread clips feel like a nuisance more than anything, but that’s because I never knew what these little things were capable of. They may be small, but bread clips are quite versatile, and their capabilities extend far beyond the kitchen.

Though I once overlooked bread clips as useless pieces of plastic, my entire outlook has changed after learning about the many ways to use them in every aspect of life. For instance, painters will be pleased to learn that bread clips can be used to hold a wet paintbrush. If your flip-flops ever break at the beach, a bread clip can even salvage the broken sandals!

The best part about these handy clips is that they’re small enough to store in your purse for emergency use. You never know when you might need to attach a key to a key ring or bookmark a page.

Whether you’re organizing your office or cleaning the dishes, you’ll find that your old bread clips often come in handy. Check out the video below to learn new ways to utilize your clips, and don’t forget to SHARE this video on Facebook!
