I use clips like these. I get 18 for $1.25. at Dollarama. There are four sizes in a bag. They close bags fairly air tight.

In a pinch, I use binder clips or clothespins instead of a chip clip. The binder clips work really well on tubes of toothpaste and the like.

I like those, too. I got a big bag of them the last time I was at IKEA for about the same price.

I had them also. Then every time my daughter showed up at my home, some thing else like a new spatula would disappear along with a handful of those clips. She finally got the last of them. In exchange I had her bring me home a baggie full of Acco clips from her office. I like the Acco clips better.

I think over the years I have outfitted my kitchen about three times. My kids are always "borrowing" something. And I never see it again unless I go to visit them. But I guess that is why I am a mother. To make their lives easier. Once it goes out the door, I know I will never see it again in my kitchen where it should belong.

Acco type clips are handy, but they don't make an air tight seal unless you twist the bag and not even always then. I don't want to try twisting the chip bag.

We always reclaim a bunch of our missing tupperware each time we visit our daughter.

It goes both ways here. My daughter and I only live a mile from each other and we're always sharing food. Every couple of weeks or so we trade back our tupperwares.

In this family we call it sending a care package to another member of the family.

But my wife gets ticked everytime her good Tupperware are taken instead of the cheaper Zip Loc containers which we have plenty of. Sometimes weeks will pass before she realizes one of her favorite Tupperware is missing....LOL
