Sentence: When Chip's brother went off to college the bedroom was all his. The first thing he did was to squirrel away some of his favorite snacks. He could never do this before because his brother would always ferret them out. He had cookies in shoe boxes in his closet - gummy bears in his sock drawer. He found that he could replace his brother's pillow with bags of chips. He took over the upper berth so he now had Chip's bunk and a chipbunk.

Etymology: chip (a thin slice of food made crisp by being fried, baked, or dried and typically eaten as a snack) + bunk (a piece of furniture consisting of two beds, one above the other, that form a unit)
