Tipsy Tuesday (#164)

Since it is still Earth month...

Tip #164

Seal pesky plastic bags with old bottle caps...no cost and a great way to recycle.

Cut off the top of an old water bottle and take off the cap. Push the bag through the bottle neck, fold it over the edges, and twist the cap back on. Now, your bag has an air and water tight seal, and you didn't have to waste the bottle. Perfect for bulk items!

**Alright now, I'm talking tips, head over to see what Impulsive and Shawn are talking about on Talk to us Tuesday!**

That is an awesome idea. Perfect for traveling with little kid snacks. I have to remember this one for this summer.

Great idea! I just use a zip lock. I would cut myself cutting the top off of a bottle... i'm a klutz.

How clever is that! We go through water bottles like crazy here and although we do recycle I still feel bad, with this little trick I would feel so much better about filling the recycling centers.

I would have NEVER thought to to this. EVER. My mind only thinks in numbers. Someone should get paid a lot of money for all these nifty inventions.

Thanks for linking up! xoxo
