I never buy something if I can get an equivalent for free. Why buy Ziplock plastic baggies at the store, when the store gives you plastic bags for free...in the produce department.

Here's a quick kitchen hack. Keep your produce bags and reuse them in the place of Ziplock bags for general refrigerator food storage.

OK GREAT! But then its bags, bags, bags, it always seems like you've got too many bags!

So lets figure out what to do with them so you can have an organized kitchen free from the corporate chains of the Ziplock and Syran wrap empires

Step 1: Fine a Good Container

The past two apartments I've moved into, I always seem to end up with wine chillers the previous tenant left behind. These work great. Or a large vase that works great too. Grab it and stuff those bags in there.
I just use my ziplock bags over and over for stuff like chips and cookies. Basiclly anythig that doesn't leave the bag all icky inside.
I even reuse all Icky inside&quot; zipper bags, carefully washing and drying them IMMEDIATELY after use [or put 'em in the freezer&nbsp;immediately after use until ready to wash a few of 'em].<br> <br> Works for me!
i think its great! woot woot fork dude!!!!
I note that no-one has rated, 4.5 stars for you (the last 0.5 stars only missing because you'll be ahead of me by 2.22 :( Also, nice instructable :P
While this is a good idea. It is probably more environmentally friendly to just use Tupperware in the fridge.
or pyrex (none of the yucky chemicals from the plastic)
