Sealing Open Bags

Never seem to have enough clips to secure open bags of rice, beans, etc.? Here's a clever way to keep them fresh.

If you find yourself suddenly out of bag clips, you can still keep ingredients like dry rice, beans, and popcorn fresh. Here's how: Cut the top off an empty plastic bottle, push the open end of the bag through the bottle’s opening, and fold the end of the bag back down around the mouthpiece. Then, just screw the lid on over the bag to “close” it.
