Here’s your opportunity to be a food star!
Simply think of a genuinely useful tip that helps you in your kitchen then shoot it with your iPhone or camera.
To be considered make sure you do the following:
Just wanted to say,clips are great until the kids rip something open that is beyond what a clip can hold closed. I have always had clear packing tape in the drawer.
completely re-seals a bag or box makes any old leftover container air tight for travel or for the freezer. Love your shows. Mar.
Binder clips are nice but I still prefer good ole fashion containers….and sadly the clips and clothespins idea is great but only if you live in an apartment that is roach free
Binder clips are great for toothpaste tubes!
another use for binder clips is to secure cheese cloth when strainning anythjng through it. i stumbled upon this idea after trying elastics and string tied around my 4 cup measuring cup and having too many mishaps when strainnning my chicken stock. it is so secure i can scrape the small bits off of it worry free.
Clothespins all the way — I’ve used binder clips as well, but clothespins are easier to handle and more securely close the bag, imo…
Clothes pins, they are not just for laundry.
I love this idea and have been using it for many years now. It works great for any package which is foldable, crackers, cereal, flour etc, and you are able to seal well enough to keep the air out which takes flavour away. Till now, I thought I was the only person that used these little tools meant for the office, mainly in my kitchen.
Hi, I too did a web search for your pre typed grocery list featured on one of your shows. It appeared to be useful especially for a young person just starting out. Could you please post it?
I have been using clothes pins for years to do the same thing – so, if you don’t happen to have binder clips use clothes pins (if you have them).
Cool! I’ve been using binder clips ever since i got married and had my own kitchen! very useful :) they’re not only for the office.
I also find that binder clips are good for holding open tight cookbooks. Put a large one in the middle & it can help hold up the book against the wall. Much easier than having to flip the pages all the time!
