    I wash out the plastic zip lock bags we use in our freezer for veggies. I put them in the top rack of the dishwasher. They don’t melt because I don’t use the dry cycle I air dry my dishes. when I unload the dishwasher I put the wet & clean bags on a chopstick in my dish drying rack in the sink to dry. It works well.

    The tinkertoy bag drier is genius. I will try to snag a set at a yard sale or thrift store to make my own. They would make nice gifts as well for the right people.

    I read the article on stockpiling and the author refers to getting items free. I live in Denver and am not familiar with any giveaways such as those she mentions. Am I missing something? I would definitely take the time to do this if I knew how since my finances need all the help they can get at the moment. Any suggestions?

    Coupons combined with store sales make items free every week. If you collect coupons on things which you already use, more than one for each is the key, and combine them with excellent store sales you can find things every week for free or with a PROFIT.

    Edit: More than one coupon for each type of item. Example: 20 coupons for Muir Glen Tomatoes = 20 cans Muir Glen Tomatoes

    Yeah, I feel strange about washing out bags that once held meat. Now that we’re mostly vegetarian, it’s not a big problem. I’m trying to use up all our plastic bags and then get rid of them and switch to something less…plastic.
