I don't always have spare containers or chip-clips handy (or have them at all) so I make my own airtight enclosures for my goodies using empty plastic drink bottles. My demo photos are coffee beans in a regular plastic bag, the other is a thicker plastic bag from chocolate chips. This method works with any bag as long as you don't bunch it up so the bottle-cap-screwing-action can still happen. Enjoy!

Sometimes I am all out of jars and containers to store my recipes or my ingredients. Since recycling is important to me, I used plastic bottles as cap for my open ingredients in their cellophane pack.
First cut the plastic bottle from the tip of the mouth, about 1 1/2 inches.
Heat the cut edge on a flat iron to give it a smooth edge.
Insert the bottle top in the open cellophane to make a closed cap, and you're done! There's no need for jars or containers anymore.
