Use Cereal Liners in the Kitchen

Recycle your cereal box (bags) inserts. They come in very handy. Use them as freezer bags, storage bags, mini trash bags, or any other purpose that you would use a freezer or storage bag for. They are heavy duty, easy to see through, and best of all, they are FREE! Try it, you will like it!

Cereal bag liners keep lettuce, celery and carrots fresher longer.

Yep, I use cereal bags in the freezer and they are nice. They are a nice thickness to keep things fresh!

Love this idea! I use them after I make chex mix homemade (or the generic/store brand of chex mix).

Its much better homemade. Use the leftover cereal bags to store the finished mix, keeps it very fresh!

How would you use them in the freezer and for storage when they don't close? Do you put them into another zip lock bag to seal them and keep the food from getting freezer burn? Lynne

I use cereal box liners to make hamburger patties. It cuts down on the mess and, unlike wax paper or plastic wrap, it rarely tears. I've even taken the bags & cut them into squares to place between patties to freeze them.

Cereal bags are just the best. As everyone else has stated here, they have so many uses, and it only takes wrapping the food in plastic wrap or foil, then popping it into a cereal bag with some Scotch tape to seal it securely. Your food

is perfectly protected and preserved in the freezer.

If you're using them to store anything outside the freezer, just a clothespin keeps them closed securely.

This may not be a new idea, but it's nice to see that it's catching on in so many kitchens around the country. They are by far the strongest wrap I've found anywhere at any price. Too bad, we can't buy it in a roll, or maybe we can, and I just don't know about it. Thanks for the posting to remind us.

I have been using cereal bags to keep my salad veggies in. Onion, gr. pepper etc. I put each veg in a paper towel, then into the bag and clip. The veggies stay nice much longer than in a plastic bag or container. And, as you say, free...

I crochet snowflakes and stiffen them and I found cereal liners to be the best material to use to pin and stiffen the snowflakes. and they are free!

I am so happy to read on how cereal box liners can be used in so many different helpful ways! I love to use them in collecting my "wet, messy small" garbage. I collect any potato skins, chicken skins/bones, other meat, onions, egg shells, coffee grounds, old left over rice, etc.

Use these bags when traveling to keep fresh wet cloths on hand. Keep soiled items from contamination by using a different bag.
I use these bags for storage that I want to keep clean. You can use a vacuum sealer to seal the bag up. It keeps documents dry and water proof in case of flooding.
Protect jewelry, stamps, pictures, or any collectibles.
I like to poke holes in the sides of the bag to add my rice. Seal bag shut. Drop into boiling water. Boil in bag that cooks rice perfectly.
