Cheap Chip Clip

Use clothespins as chip clips. For years, I have used clothespins for chip clips. You can get 40 or so for $2 in most stores. I also use them for sealing cereal bags so they won't go stale.

I do the same thing :) I have a bunch of them that I vividly painted and have in a vividly painted basket (smile)

Lots of different uses for those clothespins!

Have a great weekend!

Got one even cheaper,,,,,,,, when I buy a pair of pants, I take home the hanger and cut off the clips and use them for chip clips,, they have 2 kinds and I like both of them. If the store don't offer them to you, ask for them, usually they are in a box under the counter and they will give you all they have. Good Luck!

I've been doing that for years too....I use for any sort of a pkg that I want to keep closed. I use those pants hangers for my slacks and really love if I can get the small sized ones for my children's clothes. Yes, I have seen them in the trash barrels in Wal-Mart near the exit door and they are more than happy for you to cart them off! When I get enough for all our pants & shorts, then I'll start to use those clips as "chip clips". I do happen to think that the wooden clip clothespins are better. I bought a package of plastic ones but some have broken or been stepped on by the kids. The wooden ones seem to be more sturdy. Also I keep a clothespin or two in my van in case I need one. I take a few on vacations too because they do come in handy!
