    Yeah - no more spilled rice or beans, great idea. I guess I should wait until I drink the water and not dump it out. LOL. Thanks for sharing.
    Just saw the coasters too. You guys have such wonderful "Go green" imaginations. Great!!!!!!!!!!!

    If you used a rubber band to secure the excess bag top below the screw threads it would probably stay in place and you could just pour the item out using the bottle opening.
    Or perhaps put one of those bzillion twist-ties around the plastic just below the threads and twist tightly. This really is such a cool idea especially for traveling. Thanks!

    Love this idea!! However, DH already thinks I collect too much stupid stuff! (He's right, I do but it all has re-purpose potential!!) Patty, Collector Extrordinaire!

    Neat idea but the zip lock bags with closing tab is easier for me. When I open a bag I put the bag and contents in a zip lock.

    This is a great idea, but I live in Oregon, so each one will cost me a nickel! Better than stale dry goods or bugs! :lol:

    can you leave all the parts together and keep things in the bottle instead?

    I would unscrew the top and drop the bag on the floor. Better stick to ziplocks.

    Ptquilts--didn't your mama tell you that if you put more than 1 twist tie in a drawer, they multiply faster than bunnies?

    Is THAT where they all came from??!! I can't bear to throw them away until they break or the paper comes off.

    OK, I will confess, I also wash and dry ziploc bags and bread bags.

    cheep cheep cheep.....
