Instead of buying any kind of chip clips or plastic clips for bags, I spent one dollar for a set of  fifty spring clothes pins at the dollar store.  They are great for keeping freshness in any kind of bag, from chips to brown sugar to cereal.

My husband and I use clothes pins to seal up our chips too! 

I also bought from Tupperware a microwave safe dish that has three compartments.  I use this to take leftovers to work for lunch.  Saves $5.00 to $7.00 each day.  When I do not have leftovers for lunch I keep several healthy choice or smart ones dinners around.  I usually can find a deal for 5 for $10.00.  Cheap lunch, healthier portions and low calories.

I seem to have an abundance of large spring type paper clips that I used a lot in Scouting.  Those work great on the bags too!
