The Ziplock Bag Trick That Might Change Your Life


Headlines on this site and others are frequently accused of overpromising, but my suggestion that the trick contained in the below video might be life-changing is entirely serious. This technique will make the storage of virtually any kind of food—cooked or raw, moist or dry, bulky or compact—easier and more efficient. You might even call it inspiring.

One warning: You might not want to use this trick if you store your rotting composting scraps in ziplock bags.
