When you are looking for some thing to tie up some thing and you have nothing what do you do.? Go out and buy a ball of string or at least look for some. This is there always for every time you need some and it is as cheap as chips. It is nicely wrapped up and I am sure it will last for ages,that is the way I look at this purchase so instead of one I bought three. IT is also super strong as well and a nice shade of Green and I would like to know where you can get this cheaper so just let me know.
