Yes we do, infact we use any celophane or plastic that is available for use. We clean them first, then hang dry and use it as a freezer bag!;) We also put plastic as a base on our freezer, for foods and other stuffs not to stick on the surface..

We use bread bags for trash, emergency bags to keep in the cars and little things like that but I have never used one as a freezer bag. I would worry about it lasting or holding up. Bread bags are kind of flimsy. I would love to know how it all works. What are you freezin in them?

Hey. As long as we've used bread bags for, we've never had a problem with it, we use our bread bags to freeze meats, veges and seafood, these can be used to freeze anything... Thanks for your comment...

Bread bags work fine for short term, but for longer term freezing (over a couple of months), heavier plastic keeps freezer burn at bay longer. Try empty frozen vegetable bags - they're thicker than bread bags.

Yes, all the time! And for as long as I freeze something, it works just fine.. (Even if it's forgotten for awhile!:)

I occasionally will use a bread bag in the fridge or freezer. When I was a kid my grandma used to cut the used bread bags into strips Then she used the strips and crocheted rugs out of them. They lasted forever,I wish I would have learned to crochet from her.
