    Default RE: Baggies

    A couple of questions about baggies.Every once in a while I find caches with half-sized or even smaller baggies. These seem to be particularly useful for micro caches. Where would someone get these baggies?Next question . . . It seems as though not all baggies are created equal. I've bought generic baggies and Ziplocks in the sandwich-bag size and I suspect they're OK for holding my signature items and dropped in goodies for the short-term, but I've seen folks who have thicker baggies (almost like a freezer baggie) that are sandwich sized. What are these/where can you get them?

    I buy small (2x3" or 4x5") at the local craft store. I put electrical connectors in them for resale. For more durable applications (log books in a cache) I use Zip-Lock freezer bags.

    I have found the really small baggies at Wally World,where else? In the craft department along with those really small magnets that could be used to hold that elusive micro.

    I think that big craft store in the Augusta mall - Michael's? - has a good selection.

    And, of course, there's alwasy eBay!

    They have the ziplock ones in the grocery store that are the width of a sandwich bag but half the height.

    We recently purchased "Ziploc" baggies with a double ziploc seal. Were a bit heavier like a freezer baggie too. Sandwich size, GREAT for TB's.
