HOW TO CLOSE A BAG OF CHIPS WITHOUT A CLIP:

Having to eat stale chips is a cruel and unusual punishment that no one should have to endure. Clips are rarely there when you need them and rubber bands don’t even attempt to keep your chips crisp. Luckily, you can preserve the crunch in your favorite snack with just your hands. 1.

Squeeze all of the air out of the bag, and then flatten the top of the bag. Fold the bag with about 1-inch folds until you almost meet the chips. Fold the two corners to the back of the bag, creating 1-2-inch tabs. While keeping the tabs tucked in, pull the front of the fold over the top. It’s a little tricky, but once you get the hang of it, you’ll never have to suffer through another stale bag of chips again.

HOW TO MAKE LIPSTICK OUT OF CRAYOLA CRAYONS: You will need: One Crayola crayon of your choice, coconut oil, a pot and a toothpick or skewer stick. 1. Cut crayon into equally sized 1-inch pieces. Remove paper. 2. Fill pot with 1 cup of water, and set heat to medium low. 3. Place a small, empty glass bowl in the middle of the pot. 4. Add 1/2 teaspoon of coconut oil per inch of crayon into the small glass bowl. (For a more opaque finish, add 1/4 teaspoon.) 5. Add crayon piece(s) and stir. The crayon should melt in 30 seconds to a minute. 6. Immediately pour mixture into your desired container. An empty lipstick shell, lip balm container or contact lens case work well. 7. Once lipstick mixture has cooled, put container in the refrigerator for a couple of hours. *Don’t pour any extra lipstick mixture down the sink or it will clog.

HOW TO OPEN A POMEGRANATE: Scalp the top of the pomegranate with a knife without piercing its skin. Remove the top gently so as not to pop the seeds. You will see the six “chambers” or sections that contain the pomegranate seeds. Slice along the chamber lines to the bottom of the pomegranate, making sure not to pierce the skin. Press from the top of the pomegranate, pulling open each chamber. Gently pick off the seeds to enjoy.
