How would Angie get on with those plastic clips IKEA sells? I've given up twisties completely since I discovered them.

No need for that wrist-action with clips. They're very cheap and they come in 2 sizes.

I took my "messy" drawer a.k.a. My "go to drawer" over to a friend one day. My friend is in her 80's and loves "projects". Included a pkg. of 4"X 6" zip-lock bags.
I asked her if she would help me "organize" it. Now if you have a "messy" drawer you
Know it can include anything from rubber bands, twisties, batteries, pencils, paper clips,
Odd buttons, shoelace, acorn tops, etc., etc.
The following week on my visit to her, she presented me my drawer with 43 individual
Zip-locks. She then handed me a "pill" she found. Oblong in shape and a large "V"
Stamped in it. she said, "I think it's a pill and thought you best put it in your medicine
Cabinet. I swear, Scouts honor, I have NO idea where it came from and how it got there.

You all are so funny. As we age you never can tell what is so important that we need something real bad! I never gave twisters a thought. But I sure love Twizzlers a lot. You never know when I need strawberry licorice really bad. HaHa. Gotta love the MOMMA!
