A bread clip is a device used to hold plastic bags (such as the ones pre-sliced bread is commonly packaged in) closed. They are also commonly called bread tags, bread tabs, bread ties, or bread-bag clips. By sealing a bag more securely than tying or folding over its open end, the clip may preserve its contents longer. Sometimes the colour of the tag indicates the day on which it was baked.

There are two different types of bread clips – a more common one-piece plastic clip, and a more complex mechanical clip. (link)
