Weed Heights July 2012

Plastic bag pour spout idea

Ziploc bags have a handy zipper closure that works pretty well in most cases (see Ziploc search on Amazon) but a lot of stuff, especially from bulk grocery stores, comes in thin plastic bags that normally need a twist tie or something to keep closed.

Lifehacker cited an idea about this that sounds interesting: Flip Top Vitamin Bottle To Easy Pour Plastic Bag Sealer which in turn cites A Useful Re-use of Plastic Bottle Caps. (good ideas do get around!)

The idea is to collect screw on lids, especially those that have flip up pour capability like some ketchup bottles or other condiments – and, apparently, some vitamin bottles. Along with the screw on lid, cut off the bottle top with the threads. Then you can trap the plastic bag between the threads and the screw on top. Then you can flip the pour spout on the lid to pour out bag contents as needed.

One nice thing about this plastic bag idea is that it is flexible storage. You do need to be careful to avoid rips or other holes in the bag but it will adapt its shape to the storage area available and only use as much space as its contents need.
