Your stomach is rumbling and you are looking forward to a quick snack. You reach into your favorite chip bag, pull one out and bite right into a stale chip. If this has ever happened to you, then you know how frustrating and disappointing it is. Not only are you still hungry, but a whole bag of perfectly good chips has been wasted. You can easily avoid this situation by using a simple folding technique designed to keep your chips fresher longer without having to hunt for a chip clip.
Press your hand flat against the empty portion of the chip bag, just above the chips.
Slide your hand upward to force out any air inside the bag.
Start at the top edge of the bag and fold the bag in 2-inch increments away from you in a downward direction.
Continue to fold the bag until the fold is 1 to 2 inches from the chips. Avoid folding the bag too close to the chips, as this may crush them.
Hold the fold in place and use your thumbs to bend the top corners of the bag toward you, in the opposite direction of the downward fold.
Keep your thumbs in place to hold the corner folds and flip the top fold back over the corners.
