I tend to do my shopping between both Asda and Tesco depending on where I am when I realise it needs to be done. Asda is closer to home but Tesco is close to where I work. I do generally buy the bulk of my shopping from Asda though due to it being easier to get home. Food bags are something I always like to have in the house as they're good for many different things, not just for food storage.
Packaging, product and price!
These food bags come in a white plastic covering which is easily ripped open at one end. The packaging is nothing fancy but it is to be expected from the Asda Smart Price Range. On the front of the packaging is the product name, brand name and how many bags are included. For something like this, I really don't think that the packaging is important at all as it is what is inside that counts. The bags come rolled up and in order to use one, you need to rip along a perforated edge to remove one bag. Inside the packaging is also a few strips of bag ties. While you get 100 food bags in this product, I have never counted how many ties you actually get as I tend not to use them. I would hope that there are 100 though. These bags are supposed to be medium but I actually think they are quite large and could easily be classed as so instead. The bags are not completely see through but have a bit of a tinted colour to them. To open one of the bags, you need to rub the top part together so that it opens but this can sometimes be a little tricky and takes practice.
One packet of these bags will only set you back 83p so you are getting amazing value for money here. A pack of 100 bags will last me a really long time, normally at least 3 months. Even if I went through a packet a month, at 83p I wouldn't be complaining!
Use of the product
While food bags are good for many things, I tend to use them most for sandwiches. There is no where close to where I work where I can get something nice to eat which is easy and cheap so I take sandwiches quite often. I used to take them in a box but along with books, my purse and other things, the box took up a lot of room in my bag. These food bags easily fit in sandwiches made with 4 slices of bread if you stack them on top of each other and there will still be some room left over. This is enough space to tie the bag at the top. While these food bags do not protect my sandwiches from being squashed at all, they still usually manage to come out looking ok once I get to work. The bags keep the bread and the sandwich filling nice and fresh as well. Another thing I use these bags for is keeping food in the fridge. As I have to share a fridge with two other people, space is a big issue for me. I find that using bags instead of boxes saves on a lot of room and still keeps food fresh and usable. Something I do a lot is grate cheese and keep it in a bag in the fridge so it is easy to get to and can be tucked away in a small space somewhere.
When I was moving back to my mum's house for the summer, I used a lot of these bags to keep little niggly things in. They came in really handy for things like bobbles and hair grips. For some reason, these always end up all over and these bags were a great way of keeping them together. As well as this, I put all of my nail polishes in bags just in case any of them managed to spill on the 3 hour drive home.
As you can see, these food bags come in handy for many more things than storing food. At such a low price as well, you are definitely getting value for money.
