It’s back-to-school time which means I need to stock up on some products that I use during the school year as well as items that are on my school supply lists. I don’t know about you, but I always have Ziploc® brand bags with Easy Open Tabs on hand and in all different sizes. Of course I use them to pack lunches and store things in the freezer, but then I started thinking of all the things I use them for. I use them a lot!
