totally my bag, baby...
while some ideas for plastic baggies may seem more obvious than others (see above photo), the possibilities for uses are nearly endless.
just remember to clean out any residual (ahem) herbs before using your baggies for alternative projects such as these:
obviously, sealing bags work well as organizational tools (smaller ones to keep cosmetics together in your purse/larger ones to store pens and pencils in your junk drawer/etc).
trust me, it's WAY easier to find a giant plastic bag in your purse than your little itsy-bitsy lip gloss.
but i also like to use plastic baggies in the kitchen to help me pipe simple frosting (like for cupcakes) and fill pasta tubes.
it's super easy, and makes clean up a snap!
just fill the baggie with whatever medium you are working with, seal and snip a small hole in one corner of the bag. if the hole is not large enough, slowly make it bigger until desired size is achieved.
