Right up there with Man vs. Himself and Man vs. Nature is Man vs. Staleness. Many techniques have been tried. The tape procedure. The clothespin gambit. The dedicated device, a.k.a. "The Chip Clip". The roll-up-and-shove-in-corner-of-cupboard maneuver. The eat-the-whole-bag-at-once system. And others.
Step 3: The dawn of a new era
The video shows it all, but Instructables is all about the steps. So here they are.
Start by squeezing most of the air out of the bag so that the front and back of the bag are together and flattish down to the chips, or thereabouts.
Step 4: Roll down
Roll the bag down to just above the chips.
Step 5: Fold corners in
With the "roll" on the back side, fold 3 or 4 cm or each end around to the front as pictured.
Step 6: The tricky part
Keep the corners pinned to the bag with your thumbs so the ends won't unroll. Use your index fingers to sort of unroll the middle part towards you. Simultaneously, push with your thumbs to tuck the corners up under the resulting overhang.
Step 7: Enjoy, or not
Promise yourself that you'll burn 1000 calories before you reopen the bag.
