Ziploc Perfect Portions? Brilliant! I must admit that when I saw the commercial for the first time, I did a "Doh!" face palm. So simple, yet so needed, why didn't I ever think of that? Oh, well, no matter. They came up with the idea, I do it cheaper. :o) Very simple to do yourself with plastic wrap.
I made a white chili the other day with chicken thighs and needed to freeze the rest of the package. I ripped off about 1 square foot of plastic wrap, covered my hand with it, picked up a chicken thigh, used my other hand to wrap the plastic completely around the piece of meat and put it in a freezer bag. Voila!
According to Ziploc's website today, you can buy a 75 count box of their Perfect Portions at Target for $3.07 ($0.04/ea) or at Amazon for $4.74 ($0.06/ea). I don't know what my 3,000 sq ft container of Kirkland plastic wrap from Costco cost me because I got it a while ago. However, Amazon is selling it today for $25.34. That's only $0.008/sq ft! Even if I bought the 100 sq ft package at Wegmans grocery store for $1.99, that's still only $0.02/sq ft! And plastic wrap is something most of have on hand already. Thank you, Ziploc, for your inspiration!
