    I have an idea for a zip lock or any plastic bag. Take a sandwich bag and put something like a skateboard wheel in the bag make it tight fit and wrap the duct tape around the wheel and bag but not above the wheel leave that part be and cut the pieces for the bottom and tape it really good with layers to make it as thick as you want it..then cut the top of the bag off where the tape is around the wheel and take the wheel out and if it makes sense let me know and I will tell you how to make the lid for it. It is a little stash box or container

    Did anyone else see the thumbnail and think it was some new way to sniff drugs?
    ...and here's a life hack for all you druggies out there. Take a zip lock bag, fill the bottom of the bag with your drug of choice and zip it closed, shake the bag to aerosolize the powder, open the bag just enough to fit straw into the bag, insert one end of the straw into the bag and the other end into your nostril and cover your other nostril with your finger, now force the bag flat with the palms of your hands and viola! You just power snorted enough drugs to kill a horse in no time!

    Ziploc bags are the best for organising!
    In my tool bag I have one with my most common used screwdrivers, one with less common use screwdrivers etc.
    In my desk draw. One for pens, paper clips etc, one with ram, one with my most common used cables, etc.
    The best place of all was the garage, with ziploc bags used within my plastic storage tubs. (ie tub of power adapters has 6 bags each with different types of adapters)

    I also use the gallon size bags for travel. I've had things leak and it's annoying. This works well for a household emergency kit, so if your kit gets wet the contents are wet.

    I duct taped the 3 sides of two Hefty gallon freezer bags, put one inside of another, and filled the inner one with ice. Then zipped both shut- large ice pack for picnic coolers.
    I keep a couple of ice cube trays worth of ice cubes in a gallon Hefty freezer bag. When I make iced tea in my iced tea maker, it takes a few ice cube trays worth of ice cubes. Having the additional ice cubes in a freezer bag means that I'll still have some ice while the refilled trays freeze; I don't run out of ice.

    Placing your travel size lotions and potions in your glove compartment may work short term, but unless you want your liquids separated or altered from the heat or freezing, I wouldn't recommend it. I do like the bags over the mirrors though.

    When we go fishing and rent a cabin there is a propane fridge with a freezer. We catch the trout, gut it and clean it, then put it in a freezer bag with water and freeze it. It stays frozen in the cooler for the long drive back to the city...longer than just freezing the fish!

    he's one= Do any of you fish? the small "snack size" ones works great for taking with you just a few soft lures instead of taking the whole bag and you can take more choices in less space.

    Thawing frozen meats and vegetables. Fill a sink or bowl with hot tap water and put the meat/veg in a bag, use the trick in the video to get as much air out , seal it and put it into the water. Safer than leaving it out and slow enough it doesn't cook the contents. Also if something happens (like a last minute invite to go out for a meal) you can just wipe the excess water off the bag and refrigerate/freeze it again (although don't refreeze more than once or twice).

    We can also make smaller bags by pressing a hot knife on the Ziploc bag there by sealing the smaller bags.

    The only other thing I use bags for are filling them with water and freezing them. It's an effective ice pack for food storage. Speaking of ice, I freeze filled plastic amd unopened water bottles riggt before going through plane security. That's a solid, so it's all ok.

    I put all ingredients in to the bag and then put cutted meat in there zip up and by hands I squeeze gently (make sure is no air inside) bag to mix all ingredients on meat, then put in the fridge
    The bags using less space in the fridge and the fridge doesnt smell, also keep the meat fresh for few days.
