bookofjoe MoneyMaker™ — OneZip Mini


And while they're at it why not a OneZip Micro and even a OneZip MicroMini or MiniMicro?

So often I want to put something small in the fridge, a piece of cheese or a 3-oz can of tuna, etc., and the only alternatives are Saran Wrap, always a pain in the butt, or a 1-Quart OneZip bag, my default choice.

Would that such bags came in smaller sizes.

The 1-Quart version measures 8" wide x 7" high.

I'm thinking 4" x 4" for the Mini and 3" x 2" for the Micro.

Plenty of other uses once they get small.

As Richard Feynman presciently remarked back in 1959, envisioning the field of nanotechnology, "There's plenty of room at the bottom."

We have all sorts of zip lock sizes but probably will stay away from the Hefty brand in the future. On a recent trip, we took several sizes of Hefty zip baggies with us for packing simiplicity, storage of wet clothes, etc. We noticed that the zipper on these things were not well designed and on a couple of the bags we were unable to close them properly.

We'll probably try Ziploc or Glad bags next time around. Oh yeah, don't forget to reuse the bags. We have the super big sized Hefty ziplocks that we use for storing the Costco croissants we get once in a while. Since they are dry items, we label that bag and reuse them over and over. Works for nuts, raisins, hummus mix, flour, etc.

They did, once. They used to make pint sized bags (what is that, two cups, I think) -- however, shape-wise, they were the quart bags cut in half sideways. A terrible shape unless you're storing half-used pencils. I found them horribly inconvenient for that reason. Then they disappeared altogether.

You can always buy the various sizes available at craft stores (down to truly teeny-tiny, for storing a few beads or the odd pair of earrings) but they're hopelessly flimsy compared to Ziploks and Heftys.

Citizens arise and storm the palaces of the bagmakers! Small squarish zipper bags! NOW!
