Organizing Bags

Last week while Eve visited with Grandma W in Fallon she found out that Ziploc storage bags were not around when Grandma was little. Grandma told her any leftover food was put into bowls with shower caps placed over the bowls to help protect it. Then came the advent of plastic bags.

I don't know how anyone survived without those handy things. Not only are they good for storing leftover food, but they are used for storing or corralling a multitude of items. Be honest, don't you use them for just about anything? Well, move over plastic zipper baggies, here comes something better! Believe me, you're going to wonder how you ever lived without these once you start using them. (not recommended for refrigerator bound foods though!)


Organizing Bags are the brainchild of Lara Gallagher aka The Lazy Organizer. They are sturdy, well-made, and come in 5 convenient sizes which means you can use them to organize just about anything: your purse, puzzles, sewing projects, your children's junk toys, etc. Check out her flickr photos for a sampling of what they can hold.

So how about a try! Lara's giving away 5 Organizing Bags, one in each size. She will
choose a random winner on Friday and notify him/her by e-mail. The contest is open to residents of the U.S. and Canada.

If you haven't noticed I am an affiliate of Lara's, meaning I sell the bags. Use the link in this post or click on the button in my sidebar to order. You know you can't wait until Friday to see if you've won. :D

You're right...move on over ziplocks! I love ziplocks, I use way too many of them to help me get organized, including the xl and xxl ones! I feel guilty with the enivornmental aspect though and these bags you are showing me would fix that, now wouldn't they?! I hope I win the contest :)

I love finding new blogs through this contest!!! I've been looking at these for a year now, but I'm not supposed to buy any more organizing products until I find uses for what I have (hubster doesn't get the addiction since we still have clutter and chaos).

Looking forward to "getting to know you" and reading more of your blog!

Ziploc bags are fine, but they do have to be shoved in a drawer or they go sliding off my shelves -- I love the idea of the hanging loop on these bags!

Kim said...

Ziplocs are so yesterday! I need this bag! Thanks!
