Good information...I have to question the point where you say freezer bags are not reusable...I have been washing and reusing them for years with no ill effects.

LOL, threegardenders, I read a book by a noted pennypincher on all kinds of ways to save money, and that was one of them. I suppose if you wash them thoroughly they'd be ok.

I found the history on Mr. Birdseye interesting--I always thought that was just a fictitious name! Thanks for another great article, Paul!

Great information Paul! Thanks, I'm sure I'll be using some of this info in the near future.

I also agree with threegardeners. Ziploc bags or other brands of plastic bags are totally reuseable unless they have a hole in them. I wash them, dry them and reuse them and have done so for years. This is what my mom always does too.
