Amazing Uses for Baggies
When Rachael got a hold of Art's video about how he uses Baggies on his fishing trips, she knew there were other "Baggie-licious" ideas out there that needed to be shared!
"I'm a big shoe person just like you," Nancy tells Rachael. She goes the extra step when it comes to protecting her expensive heels; when it's raining and she doesn't want to step in mud puddles, she slips Baggies on her shoes and zips 'em closed. Then she throws out the Baggies when she reaches her destination!
Trisha wants her 10-month-old to always look her best. So when she brings her daughter to the sitter, she packs her outfits in Baggies. Everything goes in there from the shoes to the clothes to the socks. Trisha says, "The sitter always knows how I want her to look!" It's also a good idea for fathers who need some extra help coordinating outfits for the kids!
Rachael loves using Baggies as well -- she has a three-step system when it comes to bagging her receipts:
"I keep a mini bag in my purse. Anytime I take a taxi for business or what have you, I stick the receipt in the baby Baggie."
"In the car, I have a glove compartment Baggie for when I'm traveling on the road for all my travel receipts."
"Once a month I bring all the Baggies together and put them into one mac-daddy Baggie and put the name of that month on it." Then when it comes around to tax time, Rachael's prepared with any documentation she might need.
Rachael's #1 Baggie tip of all-time is in the freezer: "You can stack and store 9,000 different items if you use your Baggies," Rachael says. "Liquids, soups, pesto, chicken cutlets...you store it in a Baggie, get all the air out and you can stack up 15 meals to Sunday before you'd ever fill up your freezer!"
Gloria Estefan zips in to show Rachael how she prepares for air travel using Baggies. She places her carrying liquids in a Baggie and then sucks out all the air with a straw. The vacuum-sealed bag is easier to pack and keeps things from exploding and leaking over each other.
