      My son when he was about 10 came up with this and it works great. Ya know those hangers ya get when you buy skirts or toddler clothes that the pants are hung on. Well I had a bunch of them and really didn’t use them but didn’t get rid of them. I have bought chip clips from the stores but they don’t hold up real well and one day my son was looking for something to keep the chip bag closed with. He broke the end of one of those hangers off slipped it over the bag and pushed the little medal piece down and we had a new chip clip. They last for years.


        spring type clothes pins work too.


          When I was at Home Depot at the checkout there were great little mini clips for 60 or 70 cents. They are very durable (I’ve yet to see one break) and they hold very tightly and are the perfect chip clip size.


            I got my clips at Health Fairs for free a few years ago. ÝI know that 60 or 70 cents is not expensive but I have gotten 25 or 50 clothespins for $1.00 new. ÝI keep a few extra in one of my drawers for when ever I need to seal a bag and my 2 clips are in use. ÝI figure that I can spare some for that duty even if I have to buy a new bag every few years (which I haven’t done in 5 or so years) it sure is nice for when I need to seal something and I don’t want to use tape, a rubber band or a twist tie. Ý  


              I also use clothes pins to keep the chips closed.  I have them anyways so may as well put em to use!  ;D


                You can also use one large paper clip on the middle of the fold,or two regular paper clips 1 on each end of a tightly folded bag.
                If you have nothing else take a a whole ball point pen and clip the fold on the center of the bag.
