Using Only Freezer Bags

Why waste money buying storage and freezer bags! Just use freezer bags for all your storage needs. I use freezer bags for everything. The freezer bag is more durable and keeps the food you’re storing fresher longer!

I have noticed that freezer bags are a bit sturdier than regular ‘food storage’ bags. I haven’t done a price comparison yet to determine if the price works out (throwing away torn food storage bags vs. more money for freezer bags) so I’m wondering if this would be a selling point. Simply getting frustrated having bags rip and air get at your food might be enough.

Anyone have thoughts on this?

    I recommend using freezer bags simply because I wash and reuse them unless they were used to store meat. Freezer bags are stronger and last longer than storage bags.

Freezer bags are a little more expensive but are stronger and can be reused. Many people wash them but I buy the cheapest sandwich bags (fold over) to make serving size portions of food, squeeze out the air (usually roll in hands or flatten), then place inside a “good” gallon size freezer bag, (squeeze air out again) which is marked with the contents – no date. I discard the sandwich bags but I reuse the freezer bags as long as they stay clean (months). I don’t keep food in the freezer longer than one month unless I use my Food Saver. This system avoids freezer burn for me. Dee

    Brilliant! Why didn’t I think of that?

    I do this using leftover bread bags as the inner bag which I cut to whatever length I prefer. Works wonderfully because the outer freezer bag can be reused MANY times. I use the vacuum freezer bags and after the initial investment there is no further cost for a very long time.

I only use freezer bags. I can wash and re-use them if they wern’t used for something like raw meat. You can also use them when traveling for make-up, shampoo, and the like. Buy them at Costco and they last me for a long time!

I always use freezer bags for all of my food storage. One added value is, that are strong enough to wash and reuse for storage of other items, which is an added benefit.

For those interested in re-using your freezer bags I recommend checking out BagDri. It’s nice to wash them out till you realize you have nowhere to dry them.
