Thanks to my loving husband, I'm phasing out Ziploc baggies!

For Christmas, Alex bought me a couple of reusable sandwich bags. I take my lunch to work most days, and we already use gladware, Tupperware and reusable silverware. I had already begun using gladware for sandwiches and those types of things, but every now and then, I'd need a plastic baggie. Well, those days are gone!

Just one of these reusable sandwich bags replaces thousands of plastic baggies during its lifetime! They are food-safe, non-toxic, and PVC- and phthalate-free. This one should be hand washed with soap and warm water and then hangs dry.

I'll use these for awhile, and then see how they meet my needs. The site Alex ordered from, reusablebags.com, has many different kinds of sandwich and snack bags, not to mention reusable bottles, sacks, and pretty much anything else you could want.

Sayonara, plastic baggies! I'll be a new woman in 2010!

How did these work out? I always feel bad when I grab a "zippie" out of our drawer and have actually done my best to reuse them when I can (though not so sure how sanitary this is).

I love them! I use them for carrot and celery sticks, cucumbers, etc., that I take in my lunch or as a snack. I also use them for sandwiches in my lunch. I don't recommend them for crackers or bread for storage more than a day b/c they will get stale. But they're great for daily use! Easy to wipe out and clean too!
