Ever run out of freezer bags just when you need them...

Use milk bags...the bags that your milk is in...cut the top off the bag...wash it is hot soapy dish water,rinse well and use for freezing fruits,fish and anything else...I use them all the time and find that food is fresher than the freezer bags...

For Pasta...I have always used a teaspoon of margarine in the boiled water and so far have never had pasta stick to the pot...

Milk in Michigan comes only in a plastic jug. Soy milk comes in a waxed carton.

Interesting..milk in a bag.

Hugs, Janet

Never heard of a milk bag. Here in Jersey if you buy milk in 7-11 or WaWa you are lucky if they put the milk in a bag. Good tip if you have milk bags...................Hugs :)

Must be a Canadian thing, here we have many liquid things in a thickish plastic bag, but not milk, is it easy to pour Theresa? I've never thought of using those bags for something else after washing.
Our milk comes in a 1, 2, or 3L clear hard plastic bottle or the waxed cartons in 1L.

They are great for pouring and for freezing...I have used them for years and I think they work better than some of the freezer bags..and you are recycling the milk bags,so less cost for you...

How or what do you seal the bags with?

Hi - The only milk bags I have seen are the little ones (maybe 3"X3" ) that we used to have for the school lunch. The kids poked holes in them with a little pointed straw. How much milk comes in them - like 1 or 2 liters? How do you store it?

I've never heard of milk in a bag either except powdered milk.

You ladies have never heard of milk in a bag...okay I am stunned...Here you can buy 4 bags which is the same as a 4L jug of milk...even if you can get the milk in a carton...hubby uses the cartons to freeze fish...
