You may have seen bottle tops being used to reseal an opened bag of chips. However, by using the top of a jar instead, you can simply screw the top off to reach in for the contents and screw it bag with no fuss.
What you need:
- A plastic jar
- A hacksaw

Step 1: Saw Off Jar Top
Hold the jar firmly and saw off the the jar just a few centimetres from the top.
Step 2: Insert the Bag Through the Ring
You now have a plastic ring with a jar cover. Fit the plastic bag through the ring and wrap the bag neatly around it. You can now screw the lid over the plastic ring and seal the bag.
Step 3: Open the Lid Again, and Again, and Again...
When you need to retrieve something from the bag, just unscrew the lid and reach in. The mouth of the jar is wide enough for your hand to fit in. I used a bag of onions here, although you can use this for pasta, rice, and just about anything. When you are done, just screw bag the lid.
