Save Money on Ziplock Bags

I wash out ziplock bags (freezer and storage) after use. I throw away any that had meat in them that thawed. When done, I fold a section of paper towel and put it in the bag, then flatten the bag. The towel absorbs the moisture. When it dries out, it can be used to put in another wet bag, or for whatever you need it for.

I also re-use freezer bags. If I put meat in them, I first wrap the meat in the plastic bags we get from the grocer for fruit. Then I just take the meat out for thawing and can re-use the bag without washing it.

I wash and reuse zip lock bags for crafts. There are alot cheaper than buying the bags from a needlework magazine.

I think in some cases we can be too frugal. If plastic bags are too expensive for your budget, get a large roll of plastic wrap (cling film) and use that, At least you won't be washing plastic bags. The plastic wrap is much cheaper than plastic bags.
