Thrifty Find: Baker’s Twine
I love baker’s twine! Who’s with me? It is so pretty and can be used for so many things. Confession: I’ve never actually owned any before because I’ve been waiting for the right moment to buy some. I wanted to pick a color that would go well with my shop to use in the packaging of all my items. Normally, it wouldn’t take YEARS to make this decision but this is no ordinary baker’s twine. Oh no, it is 3,400 yards of it!! No, you didn’t read that wrong…Three thousand four hundred yards! Craziness. It is sold at wholesale prices from Country Clean Paper Supplies. Now, you may be thinking that this large amount must cost a fortune, but you’d be wrong. It is only $9.95 (plus $8.20 shipping)! For those of you who have never priced baker’s twine this may not sound that awesome, especially when the shipping almost doubles the price, but if you were to buy that many yards of twine from the people who sell it in smaller quantities it would cost you about $240! Of course a benefit of buying it in smaller quantities is that you can get more colors and not have a giant spool of twine to store, but if you think you would use it for a lot of projects it is definitely a better deal! There are 10 colors to choose from along with regular white twine as well. I can’t wait to order mine and get it in the mail so I can hug my giant spool of twine. It should last me for a very long time! Here are a few of their colors.
