8. Reusable storage bags are one of my most recent must haves. They are perfect for meal prep, storing leftovers and taking food on the go. They are freezer safe, dishwasher safe and it’s much easier to store food in these compared to Tupperware. They’re also reusable so kinder to the environment and a cheaper alternative to simple use ziplock bags. 

Customer review: “I have bought a similar product before regarding reusable bags as my household is very conscious of plastic waste. I enjoy these bags a lot more than the other ones I have bought because they are easy to seal and easy to open. They mimic your regular ziploc bag. These are thicker material and easy instructions on how to wash them. I highly recommend buying these, and I plan on buying more. Anything we can do to help save waste is a great thing!” Natalie Fuller

Customer review: “I purchased this as a gift for my friend who is a fantastic cook–she uses fresh ingredients almost exclusively–but pressing fresh garlic is a task usually delegated. No longer–Gracula is there for her. She uses him nearly every time she needs garlic (which is basically daily) and months later still makes a point of saying how much she enjoys the gift” L
