and the manufacturer is laughing at us for doing it!

resealable sandwich bags with a sticky seal! yeah great idea in practice but the moment you peel open the bag and attempt to slide your sarnies in you contaminate the sticky seal and it wont seal DOH!
my daughter says their great and promtly showed me how good they are by using two bags to put my sarnies in :facepalm: no wonder we use a lot of them!
what ever happened to wrapping your sarnies in silver foil? at least when your done eating you had a nice little ball of foil you could bounce off the apprentices head :lol:

I have used those plastic bags you get on the fruit & veg at Tesco.

Doesn't cost a penny and to balance my carbon footprint :facepalm: I don't put my fruit & veg in the bags!
