Cheap clips

At some point in my brief history as a house wife, I got fed up with never having enough bag clips to clip the chip bags on the counter, the spinach bags in the refrigerator, the opened bags of egg noodles in the cabinet, and the numerous other bags around the kitchen that needed to be clipped. Then, one day, an idea came to me from the past. My grandmother used to clip all her bags with wooden clothespins as I'm sure many others did and still do.

I found that 50 clothespins can be purchased for about the same price as 3 or 4 bag clips. Whoever came up with the bag clip concept is a rich man or woman. I know clothespins don't have quite the same counter appeal, but I'm not throwing away any more money on cute bag clips.
