Bag it

I never realized how essential plastic zip-top bags are to my daily life until I came to a place with limited plastic food storage and an abundance of creeping creatures that want at my leftovers.

Friends have generously mailed us enough baggies to hermetically seal everything we own, but just like in America, Trevor and I hoard the new ones and continue to scrub and reuse the same ratty few until they finally give up. They become odd little family heirlooms: that one giant bag with the red zipper!

If we're this sentimental about plastic bags, imagine how much other useless junk we have in our house.
