Summer Storage Strategies from #Ziploc & A Giveaway to match!

First off, in our home, we are BIG users of Ziploc products and I constantly find other uses for their containers and bags. An essential item around here, we even take them on holiday with us ‘just in case’.

Now they’ve had a makeover and I know it will make MY organizing easier for sure!

Ziploc® brand bags now with Easy Open Tabs are a new innovation in the Ziploc® brand family. With a new Easy Open Tab with colour coded bags and cartons, these bags help to make life even easier amidst life’s chaos.

  •  New Easy Open Tabs available in Freezer bags, Storage bags, Snack bags, and Sandwich bags
  • Colour coded tabs and cartons to represent a function
    • Freezer bags are blue for cold storage
    • Green Sandwich/Snack tabs are for keeping things fresh
    • Storage bags are pink to store a variety of items

But, as I mentioned above, Ziploc bags and containers are more than just a kitchen item, they have a lot of diversity. In my Sparks unit this year we even did this fun aquarium craft with them as we had the confidence that the zippers would indeed ‘lock’. The girls loved them. A great craft for summer parties too when the kids need an activity. We used blue gelatin and gummies in ours, but these would be amazing too!
