It's a great idea for those last little bits of cereal, macaroni, snack food, or any food that comes in a bag. I use a lot of bag clips to keep things fresh, but when the bags get too low I tend to cut the bag down... which makes it hard to keep the clip on. Guess I shouldn't do that but it's annoying having all those large empty bags in the cabinet.
I'm guessing you could do this trick with regular sandwich bags or even re-use bread bags... or maybe those veggie bags in the produce department (they may be too flimsy). Seems like there could be many uses.
How to seal a bag and make it air-tight:
Cut a disposable water bottle and keep the neck and top, as in the photo.
Insert the plastic bag through the neck, fold over and screw the top to seal.
The bag is made to be air-tight, such that water will not leak, the secret lies with the screw top!
This is a great idea to share. Good for us and the environment too!
Well, that's it! Clever, huh?
I searched the internet and couldn't find where this idea originated. It's been shared on many websites. Whoever thought of it... and shared it... I thank you! :)
I did try this idea myself before posting it. It seems to work well... but I think I'd use it mostly for longer storage or a one-time-use thing. I wouldn't use it for something I had to get in and out of a lot... the bag would get too crumpled. But that's just me. Maybe you'll find a great use for it that works well for you.
The way I see it... Anything is worth trying once! You never know when you'll find a great money-saving or time-saving idea. And that's my tip of the day!
Thanks for reading and God bless!
