This was actually my husband's amazing idea (I hope it's an original one!):

Cut off the clip ends of the hangers you get when you buy kids pants.  We fold our son's clothes instead of hanging them due to limited closet space so we never use the hangers.

They make great chip (and cereal, and rice, and beans) clips for keeping the bags closed.  He used a pair of tin snips or a hacksaw would most likely cut easily through the plastic.

We use the clip-style clothespins from my laundry bag.

Darn Beat me to it. We always use regular clothes pins for clips. I found some colorful ones at the dollar store and use those as well.

I use binder clips to close chip bags and the inside bags for cereal and crackers, etc.  They come in cool colors/patterns from the office store and if you ever need them for a stack of papers or a report they do that too.  I have a bunch I use to clip my cc receipts to the statements and to keep my copies of monthly bills together.
