Save Money on Ziplock Bags

Save money on Zip lock bags by reusing them. I do not care how big or how small the bag is, I always save them. I make sure I wash them really well, dry them and use them again.

Save Money on Ziplock Bags

Renee is right! I never throw away a perfectly good ziplock bag! I wash mine, too, and have come up with a good solution for letting them dry. I purchased some thin dowel (like 3/8 or 1/4") and cut it in about 15" segments which stay in a beautiful colored glass jar in the kitchen window. When I wash a bag, I stand a dowel segment in the silverware container of the dish-drainer to place a plastic bag over. This keeps the bag open and allows it to drain down! Works very well! Occasionally, when I substitute at a Mother's Day Out, I have even been known to take home ziplock bags from children's lunches that their moms have instructed them to throw away. That's a whole other topic! What I could tell Moms about wasting money by packing too much and the wrong kind of food for their preschool child's lunches! (08/13/2004)

Save Money on Ziplock Bags

I have always washed out my ziplock bags much to the amusement of my family. However, I don't save them when I have had raw pork or chicken in them. I'm too afraid of not getting them germ-free. (08/16/2004)
