    The only problem with that nifty trick is, Mum would always be making the bag airtight, and the next person who wanted some chips would just fold the top over, or worse, eat all the chips, fold over the bag and Mum puts hand in and , NOTHING, all gone.!!!

    That would be the same person that puts empty jars/packets etc back in the fridge LOL

    Gosh, I hadn’t realised that there are people about who don’t ‘polish off’ a bag of chips (or crisps as we call them over her) once the bag has been opened – lol.

    I wonder how long it took them to manage their self-control, and was it really worth the effort – lol

    Well, I think it’s very clever; what a shame I don’t eat crisps.
