When shopping for clothes that are on the plastic hangers with clips, like skirts, shorts, slacks, always ask for the hanger. You can cut the little clips out away from the plastic hanger and then smooth any rough spots with sandpaper and you have some of the best, strongest clips for your chip bag, bulk cereal bags, etc. You can even ask for them at the stores. They will hand them over to you, the hangers that is. Enjoy the idea and get to saving that money!
That seems like a lot of work to do just to get a few spring clips, plus I like to use those hangers for pants or skirts.
I just use clothespins for cereal bags, chips, etc. (the ones that have a spring, not the slide-on wooden ones). You can find these clothespins in the dollar stores and anywhere from 20-40 clothespins come in a pack depending on if they are plastic or wood.
I also use the spring type clothespins.
I use the clothes pins too but I loved this tip. Thanks! After a while, you can have too many of those plastic hangers and it's a great idea to be able to use the clip part.
I also use close pins, except I paint them a solid color, and then decorate them...like for the holidays, Halloween, 4th of July and Christmas! I also use the clothes pins on the mail box, to secure a letter that's going out!
