Don't carry the size I need
I went to the Container Store today specifically to get a reclosable "zip" bag in a particular size: 6x9" to hold booklets, but was disappointed that they don't carry that size. The online description of the Reclosable bags says "...we've got a bag in just the size you need " but they didn't in this case. I know the supplier makes that size because I purchased some tiny zip bags packaged in a 6X9" one. That size is perfect to hold 8.5x11 sheets folded in half and I'm sure TCS wouldn't have any trouble selling that size if they carried them.

I have purchased the reclosable bags several times in the past. The 2-1/2" x 3" bags are perfect for packing daily medications. Instead of opening med bottles every day, I pack 30 days of pills once a month into individual bags. The reclosable bags are also great for earrings and small jewelry items.

Multiple uses, sturdy thickness
I use the smaller ones for jewelry. Keeps pieces separate and prevents them from getting dinged up and tangled. I use the larger ones all over the house, but especially in my suitcase when I travel. Sturdier than a freezer bag and without all the printing on them so you can see the contents better.

Great For On the Go...
These wee little"zips" were discovered when living in the Ft. Worth area. I have reached 'substantial' age and find them very handy to keep the personal stuff of woman at my point of life, need to carry.
Medicare Card/Insurance and Med History in one! Credit Card(s), Drivers license in another. Oh, and the Grand Kids...When I want to grab a fanny pack and take a walk, all my necessary I.D. is easily transferred from a cumbersome purse into a small pack and away I go, comfortable in knowing the important stuff is with me.
