You know when you go grocery shopping and you take too many produce bags? Instead of leaving them in the cart when you are done, take them home with you. You can use them to store open packages of luncheon meat, to cover hard cheeses etc. instead of ziplock bags and all for free! You can also reuse the produce bags that you put your fruit and veggies in to collect and toss veggie peels and refuse. When shopping, they don't just have to be used for produce either. You can use them to handle and bag meat to ensure that the juices don't contaminate your hands or other groceries.
Editor's Note: I have a friend who liked produce bags so much for things around the house, that she talked to the manager of her local grocery store and purchased a whole roll of them. They lasted a long time and were reasonably inexpensive.
I also find that for crafts, like the kind you might want to sell, you can go to the local restaurant supply store.
My daughter had a tie dyed teeshirt company for 3 years, and she bought a roll of 500 that have no logo on them for 12.00
She loved them, because people in the Saturday Market who had purchased them, basically carried around free advertisement. Sometimes, she would get people who had seen someone carrying her wares and were directed to her booth just from that!
Another good source is the tube bags that newspapers are delivered in.
I liked the idea of produce bags used for food and other purposes. Ziplock bags can be used for red kashmiri chillies
to store in the freezer and use whenever you need but first dry they for a day or 2 and then store them.
