11. Clean up after Fido.
Poo patrol. Easy peasy. ‘Nuff said.
12. Emergency gloves.
I don’t know about you, but I usually get the urge to dye my hair right about midnight. When I don’t have any gloves on hand, these baggies stand in perfectly. Also great for food prep “gloves.”
13. Inventive seedling pots.
Instead of buying a bunch of starter pots, just poke a few holes in the bottom of your baggies, fill them with soil, and voila! They’re super easy to transplant, too.
14. Protect your electronics.
Are you going to someplace like Miami; electrical gadgets coming with you to the beach? Keep your cell phone, iPod, etc. safe from water at the beach or pool. Bag them up and party down.
15. Organize your drawers and shelves.
Lots of folks keep their favorite recipes on index cards. You can then use baggies to organize the cards by type, and you can write right onto the baggies with a sharpie, for quick reference. Jamie from C.R.A.F.T. organized her bathing suit drawer with plastic zipper bags – so simple but so effective.
