Idea Reuse Empty Cereal bags for Marinades/Coating!

I have been doing this for a while and I thought Id share.
I keep all the empty plastic cereal bags in a bin in my pantry. When ever there is a recipe that requires marinating or coating with flour I use them. I twist the top about 3 times and secure with a rubber band wrapped around tightly. Then shake, smoosh and squeeze away!
Its great because they are thick and Ive never had one leak through. And when you are done with it, simply toss it in the trash!
No point in using a ziploc bag when you've already paid for plastic cereal bags!

I am making Asian Marinated Chicken Legs for the kiddos tonight- so I thought it was a perfect time to share.

Definitely cheaper than zip bags!

I have also read that they're great to use when you need wax paper, for either crafts or cooking.

I also use the for times when you have to throw something gross away in the trash. Great for those days when you have to clean out the fridge
