Simple Tips: Sealing Plastic Bags

December 1, 2012 by 26 Comments

I love simple tips!  Yesterday, I hinted that we started some demo!  We’re working on the area in my house that is more ugly than our pink bathrooms!  My Laundry Room – Pantry!  At some point I envision coordinating containers for my dry products, like baking items, rice, and dry beans.  That day will totally rock my world, and you’ll be one of the first to know.  Until then, I have a simple solution to keep my open bags from making a mess!

Simple Tips - ItsOverflowing

1. I twist my open bag of food (powdered sugar), then insert it into the top of an empty, clean water bottle.  (I use a utility knife to cut the plastic along the top line of label).

2.  I pull the top of the sack over the bottle and use the cap to air seal the bag.  No spills!

What are your favorite Simple Tips!?

    Hi Aimee!
    Thank you for hosting this party!
    I have decided to link up our traditional table cener piece in Croatia – Advent Corolla. It has 4 candles – symbols for 4 Sundays prior to Christmas. At every Sunday dinner, family lights up candles; this Sunday we will light first candle, next Sunday two etc… These candles are put out not by blowing but with piece of bread dipped in wine, usually done by the youngest in the house.
    I also link traditional Nativity scene placed under the Christmas tree. It is assembled at Christmas Eve by whole family. The figures of Three Wise Men travel slowely toward Jesus’ crib untill Epiphany (Jan. 6th) when they meet Jesus.
    I hope you will like it!
