Do You Use Kitchen Twine?

Trussing a big turkey may be the only time some of us use kitchen twine all year. But others use it frequently: tying vegetables so they stay upright in a steamer, trussing smaller chickens and pork roasts, and tying cheesecloth bags of dumplings together. Do you use kitchen twine very often, and if so, what for?

We hardly ever use kitchen twine in the kitchen itself - but we often use it for wrapping presents with butcher paper and dried flowers for a rustic Christmas look.

Also, that pretty twine holder above is from Williams-Sonoma:
