As far as quick and easy goes, a good quality bag clip might be what you're looking for. I don't personally use them on bread bags currently, but I do use them on everything from produce to rice with good results. They're very easy to release and clip back on, and close the bag when it's flat, rather than twisted, reducing your effort of getting bread out of ...

My usual solution to this problem is to just twist the opening of the bag and fold it under the loaf of bread when setting it back on the shelf. Unfortunately my wife isn't convinced that it's an effective way of keeping the bag sealed.

You could sew small buttons onto your pants' waistlines at the positions you like to clip the suspenders. Then you fasten the clip over the buttons each time. Since the buttons stick out from the fabric, the clips will have a lot of extra "grip".

Lawrence posted the right answer 4 hours ago. I just want to add more clarification, and when I started typing this clarification as a comment on Lawrence's answer, it got too long. The slot holds onto the HEAD of the screw, nail, or bolt. (In your case, a bolt will work best.) You put the bolt head into the circular part of the slot, then slide it to the ...

Try a heavy-duty clip, like a bulldog clip (the link is to a picture on thedealsdiscount.com - see picture below). Scrunch up the end however you like, and clip it on. To get your bread, just squeeze the clip to get it off.

A one-gallon food storage bag with a plastic "zipper" should do the trick. Zip open, take out a slice, zip closed. When you first buy the bread, it will most likely be in a plastic bag. Remove all the bread from that bag and throw that bag away. Get 2 one-gallon food storage bags, since a whole loaf won't fit in one bag. Put half the loaf in each bag and ...

My grandfather had a good solution to this. At least, I think it's good. With the bread inside, give the bag a spin or two, keeping the spun part as close to the loaf as possible. Stand the bag/loaf on its heel. Without unspinning, fold the opening of the bag down around the loaf, so that the opening end of the bag is inside out with the front of the loaf ...

Would it be possible to SAVE one disposable bread bag clip and REUSE it for subsequent bags of bread that come with the undesirable labour-intensive twisty tie. What a wacky idea.

There are several shapes of carabiner like hooks and connectors on the market. I am personally fond of S shaped ones that are available from about 5 mm by 10 mm to about 40 by 80 mm, or an even wider range. Out of door activity shops often stock these and other solutions. The lifehack solution would be, for me at least, a piece of string closed with a good ...

I recommend tracing the location of the holes onto a piece of paper then using that to transfer the measurements to the surface where you're mounting the surge protector.

In each of the 4 holes, the opening in the middle is for a screw or nail. Turn the devise sideways (rotate it 90 degrees), put the head of a screw through the hole, then let the device slide down a little so that the screw head is wedged onto the slender (top) part of the hole.

First, buy several small standard spiral keyrings, about half-inch size. When you link 2 or more together, you get a short chain between your device and the main keyring. Now everything can pivot and lay flat. Also I use the smaller key rings to organize groups of keys on my main key ring.

A good stout spring style clothes pin works wonders at our home. We use them to keep a lot of bags closed. Give the top of the bag a twist, and clip it on! Unclip it and the bag is as good as open.

Rapid access versus shelf-life concession. A purpose-built counter-top storage container called a bread-box is faster for storing and retrieving one or more slices of bread. The full sliced loaf of bread is placed in the container which has a large front-opening door allowing easy, fast access to one or more slices at your soul discretion. There is a ...

This will not work in all situations, but I have used it in some. Take a bit of soft fabric which does attach to the hooks side of the velcro. Cut it to the size of the exposed hooks and put it on and leave it there. I have used polar fleece, also as you can cut it into the size and shape you want without it coming undone. If it does not show, cut your ...
