8 Easy Ways to Use a Zipper Storage Pouch
Store Your School Textbooks in Pouch
Idea 1: Get several of the pouches and use one for each subject. Label the subject on each bag and put it in your locker when you do not need it. If you are looking for more back-to-school ideas, visit our posts here.
Gather the Small Loose Toys and Store in Pouch
Idea 2: Store small loose toys in the pouch. With the zipper, it will keep everything in one place and will never spill out unless the pouch opens, that is. Feel free to visit our 29 Days Small Items Big Clutter Challenge for more ideas on things you can store in the pouch.
Add your Keepsakes to the Zipper Pouch.
Idea 3: School Keepsake items, like yearbooks, can fit in this pouch. Here I have seven years of elementary school yearbooks that easily fit in this zipper pouch.
Add Your Collections to the Zipper Pouch
Idea 4: Coin collections and other collections. If you have books for your groups, they fit nicely in the zipper pouch.
Add Your Workout clothing to the pouch and store it in your car.
Idea 5: Workout gear for your bag or when you travel. Folding these items neatly in the pouch will allow you to fit the right amount of items in a small space.
Add Items to take with you when traveling.
Idea 6: Use this pouch for the items you want to take out on the plane. Your notepad and devices can also fit in it. It will keep everything in one place, and when you are going to pull it out of your bag, it will stay together.
Store children "things to do" at Grandma's
Idea 7: Trip to Grandparents or car ride packet. Put all the items your kids want to use in the car or when they stay overnight to their grandparents. Crafts, books, games, DVDs, and paper all fit in this zipper pouch.
Store Important documents so they don't get wet.

I, too, am a fan of zippered pouches! Mine are a little different...poly zip, only 10X13, expand to an inch. I use them to corral papers pertaining to individual projects. Kinda like a manila folder, but you can see in and they can't fall out. I'm curious about yours, though. Are they available online? Also love the larger Ziploc bags, but can't always find them.
I found a red one on Amazon. I updated the post with the link. Thanks for stopping by and commenting.
