I don't use a pick.
A friend of mine was a music teacher in a poor high school. He used bread clips and, me hardly ever using a pick, gave him several of mine to help the students.
They were so poor if you gave out ten at a time you had to get all ten back at the end of the lesson. Sad.
1. I have quit drinking, but it has taken an inordinately long time to completely sober up, I told you I drank a LOT!
2. Cockle burs were quickly rejected, followed closely by prickly pears. You know, somethings just fall under the dirty work clause. I know it's hard for a fellow with your keen wit, and energetic, expansive mind to accept, but some things just don't have a good answer. A still living snake presents its own set of problems, that we need not discuss in an open forum. Though some might... Uh, treading DEEP water right there...
Expired Amex card. Kinda thin sounding.
Best pick I ever used in a pinch! Just don't let it get hooked in the hole!!
Bread bag clips used to be the straplock of the poor.
Never. But I always carry dollar coins and have used one on a dare. That is actually an extension of a bet I lost in the 70'sand played an entire 4-set bluegrass gig on guitar with an 1810 large cent. Which I still have!
I always carry two (legal) tortoiseshell picks in a stiff leather case on my key ring. One os my primary electric pick, the other my primary flatpicking/mandolin one.
I haven't found any bread clips since I moved to the UK. The bread bags here all seem to use little pieces of not very sticky tape instead.
What is a bread clip?
We don't use that in ol'europe
You can still find the clips on loaves from some smaller bakers in the UK and some commercial bagel bags. The move to sticky tape was not appreciated. I use Schaller type locks nowadays, but still hold a smile for clipping a bread clip on.

Credit card / bank card in a pinch.
I once discovered on a gig that I had left my picks / spare cables bag behind. I had an expendable frequent flyer I.D. card in my wallet that I bent back and forth to break off 2 triangular pieces. Then, I shaped the corners by rubbing on the stage carpet. Only needed one for the gig.
Ordinarily pick threads are among my favorites.
break the end off of a plastic picnic knife. done it while playing at work many times.
They would flex too much for me
I have several times made picks by cutting them out of the bottom of Dawn or Clorox bottles with a pocket knife.

You must have been using the Wonder Bread clip. I was using the Boutique Multi-Grain clip.
Isn't this the REAL reason they make kids' Legos?
I once tried one of my sister's glue-on nails in the '70s, but 'twas the bellbottoms made me do it.
