Recently, I came across "Snack Bags". These are resealable plastic bags. I know, I know, that dreaded plastic bag thing, but I'm not throwing them out I'm saving things in them for a looooong time. They are the same width but shorter than sandwich bags. I got the 'no name' version in Loblaws...economical as well. I'm not sure why I was never aware of these. I don't use that many "Baggies" as they used to be called.
Turns out they are a "crafters" best friend. Think about the endless possibilities.
From beading projects to sorting out buttons, jewelery, scrapbooking smalls, your sewing junk, your workroom junk, they are fabulous. I once heard a makeup artist touting these bags for organizing your cosmetics.
They may even be good for snacks since you'll be so busy filling them, you'll ultimately need sustenance. Mini marshmallows would be a perfect fit. Then you could make yourself a hot chocolate. While you're having your hot chocolate you might need a cookie... This is no doubt how the series, "If You Give A Mouse A Cookie" got started.
If you happen to be a "Button Junkie" and a collector of smallish items, you can't imagine the joy you will experience in this find. It may also compel you to start looking for things to put in the bags. Mine came in a box of 75, and it becomes an exciting adventure to find a new use for them. You may consider this exercise, which will balance any snacking you may do.
I'm off to organize my Carmi buttons, I will have a bag for each of her categories and since I now have to keep a log as to which ones "got it"....."want it".....these little hummers will come in mighty handy.
The picture on the no name box has cherries in the snack bag. I just got a huge bucket of cherries from Costco....this might be overkill.
