Frugal Tip: Recycled Chip Bag Into Gift Bag

The Potato Chip Bag, and Other Snack Bags
Have you ever wondered, while enjoying that bag of chips - how you could recycle the bag? No? Probably not. LOL

But here is an idea anyhow - turn it inside out to the shiny side to use it as a gift bag!

TO USE: Turn your chip bag inside out, wash it with dish soap to get rid of any grease. Dry it out.

Then reuse the silvery or white side as a mylar-style gift bag, attaching some pretty ribbon.

You could reuse these bags over and over.

Lynda LeBlanc posted: You can also stick a rock inside, tie with ribbon and have a super inexpensive balloon weight. Wish I would have thought of the chip bag before I bought metallic gift wrap to do that for a party 2 weeks ago
