Use Rubber Bands to Close Bags

We keep all rubberbands that come into the house (on newspapers, vegetables, etc.) in a basket in the kitchen. We use these to hold bags closed - chips, rice, sugar, anything that can be kept in its original bag. Just curl the top of the bag until it reaches the treasure inside, then run the rubber band around the bag from top to bottom. Contents stay fresh and contained!

I also save the wire "twisties" to re-use for this.

I also use clothes pins for many of the same things.

I save rubber bands, twisties, plastic clip things like come on potatoes, clothes pins, I put them all into a pretty glass jar with suction lid.
