Favorite Things – What Are Yours?

When I relocated to Germany last month, I asked some of my favorite people to hop on my blog, decor8, for a few weeks and share a few of their favorite things.

Why I Love Ziploc Bags.

I’ve always loved Ziplog bags, but it seemed very wasteful to buy a plastic bag, only to throw it away. (I’m not one of those people who will wash and re-use Ziploc bags). When my mother came to visit, however, she bought me a big assortment of bags, in all sizes – my favorites are the cunning “snack” size and the enormous two-gallon size. With all those Ziploc bags in the house, I caved. I couldn’t resist all that handiness. Now I use Ziploc bags all the time. Some suggestions:
