In my drawer that houses my dish towels, I also keep rubber bands, clothespins, and masking tape.
Rubber bands come in handy for things going in the freezer.
The clothespins are great for any bagged food.
But above them all- I love my masking tape!
Masking tape works when clips won't stay on. It works on bags that are too big for clips like the 25 and 50 pound bags I buy of bulk flours, grains, beans, and sugars.
It is also handy for labeling freezer foods. (Especially since I re-use everything and sometimes there's multiple writing! Eek!)
I also use it on my buckets that house sugar, flours, grains, beans, and more. That put a stop to having to black-out everything when something new went into an old bucket.
There are many best buddies to have in a kitchen, but masking tape is one of my faves!
