Last week I had the joy of celebrating the start of my fifth year in business!  I can hardly believe it's been that long.  I've learned a lot in those five years so to celebrate, I am going to share a month full of my favorite organizing things and projects.  Today we start with one of my favorite organizing products for nearly any room...the zipper plastic bag aka Ziploc bags.  
Why do I love them?  They are clear.  They come in many sizes to hold items big and small.  They are inexpensive.  They are reusable.  And if you can't use them any more, they are recyclable (just take them to your local grocery store with your plastic grocery bags).  Here are some of my favorite ways to use them:
1.  In desks or desk drawers to contain and label cords, paper clips, pens/pencils/markers, chargers, batteries, you name it.
2.  In larger bins to separate items like bows from ribbons and tissue paper in a bin of gift wrap supplies or games from trains in toy boxes.
3.  Use these largeextra and extra-extra large bags in bins to divide clothing like baby clothes into tops, bottoms, onesies, jammies, etc.
I always carry sandwich, quart and gallon size bags in my organizing bag and a box or two of the XXL bags in my car just in case I need them.
