Somehow when I my kids became teens, I ended up buying more chips. I think it started with buying chips for a party or simply having friends over. I would buy some to have around for those times, but they would end up getting eaten and then I would buy more. Mostly we eat tortilla chips with salsa, humus, or melted cheese. But they like potato chips and Doritos and any other chips I will buy.
One problem with having chips in the kitchen is storage. They take up a lot of space and aren’t particularly attractive to have sitting around (a fruit bowl is much healthier and attractive).
My solution was to buy a large rectangular basket to hold my chips. The basket sits on top of the refrigerator. This serves two purposes.
1. Even if the tops of the bags stick out of the basket, it’s still more attractive than no basket at all.
2. While the chips aren’t completely out of sight, they are less noticeable than some storage locations and therefore not eaten immediately.
