Ziploc Baggies and More

I received a bunch of Ziploc bags and containers to try out.  I visited the Ziploc website and I think you'd really enjoy it. They have recipes, craft ideas, storage ideas and more! Go ahead... Click the button... I'll wait.

See? I told you it was worth the click!

I got some new Ziploc quart sized storage bags with smart zip and an expandable bottom. These are awesome! My kids like to take "sub" sized sandwiches -- you know, on a hoagie roll -- to school. I do cut the subs in half, but the sandwich bags kinda smoosh the rolls when I zip them up. These new bags with the expandable bottoms are perfect for those sandwiches!!  No more smooshed rolls at lunch time. The kids actually noticed and said something like, "Mom, those new baggies you got -- they don't smoosh the sandwiches. You gotta get those, k?" (Hey, it's the little things!)  It just happened that my bagel bag got a hole in it so, rather than having the last 2 bagels go stale, I put them in one of these and, Voila!!  They fit perfectly... (see picture below)

I also got the Ziploc sandwich bags - which I love. I put their regular sized sandwiches - you know, the ones on plain old sliced bread or hot dog rolls - in those bags. I also use them for their grapes, their cookies (those of you who use snack bags for cookies -- my kids take many cookies and share with their friends), pretzels and more.  Heck, I don't just use 'em for food. I use them for travel purposes -- I put my mini shampoo and such in there so that if they leak, it doesn't get all over my stuff.  Now that I think of it, I use them for something in almost every room in my house!They are indispensible! 

The Ziploc expandable bottom freezer bags have been another terrific little item around here. We tend to buy in bulk.  Those particular bags are perfect for chicken breast, hamburger, and even pork chops.  We can put enough for a meal or individual in each bag and drop it right into the freezer. It's perfect!!  You can see my frozen chicken breast in the photo below... I knew you'd love it!

They also sent the Ziploc smart snap square containers - medium size. These arrived at the right time. Mr. had just made spaghetti sauce. We filled the containers - which have measurements on the side so you know exactly how much you are putting in each one. They seal nice and tight. We put those right into the freezer as well. Mr. also used one to take his salad to work in the other day. He loves the size -- it's just enough. AND, they wash in the top rack of the dishwasher.

The best part about all of this is that you can win your own bunch of Ziploc goodness!!  Leave me a comment by Sept 18th - US addresses only.  I'll pull a name out of a hat.  Ziploc will send it directly to you. How cool is that??
