Bag clips are hard to find in the Bonham kitchen. Usually one or two have broken, all the clips are being used, or I just can't find one. This happened to me today and by chance I saw a plastic hair barrette on top of the microwave. My brain kicked into high gear and I realized that I might be able to use the hair barrette as a bag clip. Carefully I clamped the barrette around the tightly rolled top of the powdered sugar bag and let go. It worked! I have always heard that "Necessity is the mother of invention." and now I know it to be true. For less than a dollar I can buy a whole bag of barrettes and save my bag clips for the larger jobs.
