Q: I really want to get some reusable, easy to clean sandwich and snack bags. I've been overwhelmed by the number of similar sounding options out there, and their seemingly high prices.
Do you or your readers have any suggestions on which kind is best? Or, does anyone know of a tutorial to make my own?

Editor: Lauren, the options are indeed rather overwhelming. We think that it depends, though, on what you want to use the bags for. Do you just want them for cookies and crackers? Or for messy sandwiches? Personally I like waxed paper bags, which are biodegradable and compostable, and quite inexpensive. They can be reused quite a few times for dry snacks but then if you need to put something messy in one you can compost it later.
Here's another good thread on this whole topic:

Readers, any thoughts?
