VIA| All too often, we head to the pantry to grab out some delicious salty snacks only to find that someone left the bag of chips open. Now they are stale and tasteless, ready to be thrown away along with the $165 billion of other consumable waste that American’s toss out every single year.
Fixing this wasteful trend can only begin in our own kitchens, with each and every one of us doing anything we can to eat every single thing we purchase from the grocery store. It not only will save the world, it’ll also save the average American household a ton of money along the way.
Talking about being more resourceful is one thing, but putting it into action is another entirely. One way you can begin to preserve your food is by closing up chips, cereal and other perishable products up right – keeping them tasting fresh and crisp for days longer than before.
If you don’t have a chip clip, San Francisco Globe has a great way to close up those bags of chips and keep them closed using nothing other than ingenuity. Start out by rolling the bag tightly like usual, but before you get to the bottom fold in the sides about an inch.
Keeping the sides folded in and away from your body, use your thumbs to flip the inside around. The technique can be seen in the handy clip below and will save you tons of time and money in the long run.
