Keep stashers in your backpack full of snacks and tea bags, in your freezer full of smoothie supplies, and bring them with when grocery shopping in bulk. When travelling, always have at least a few for storing makeup, bringing healthy snacks, and carrying all your supplements.

There are so many ways to use stasher bags! It’s fun to think of all the possibilities, so, we're sharing 50 ways you can use your bags — from the beach to the plane, to your office, to your fridge, and more!

50 Ways to Use Your Stasher Bags

For the Eats

  1. Keep food fresh in the refrigerator - avocados, herbs, tortillas… doughnuts
  2. Store leftovers from a home-cooked meal.
  3. Make stasher a to-go container if you take food home from a restaurant.
  4. Bring a few to the farmer’s market to fill up with greens, berries, or any loose items that need a bag.
  5. Fill up in the bulk section of your grocery store, just make sure to weigh it first to get the tare. I have mine memorised I used them so much :) Snack: 56g, Sandwich: 70g. 
  6. Pack a zero waste lunch or snacks for a road-trip, beach day or the zoo.
  7. Portion out “smoothie packs” for the freezer— add all the fruits/veggies and then dump into the blender with some liquid and blend!
  8. Steam your vegetables in the microwave or boiling water.
  9. Marinate a juicy cut of meat or fish.
  10. Stash and mash zesty guacamole.

  11. Make your own ice cream.
  12. Steam and smush nutritious produce for healthy homemade baby food.
  13. Make the perfect steak with the sous vide cooking method.
  14. Quick-pickle some veggies or make homemade sauerkraut.
  15. Keep veggie scraps or bones in the freezer for a future broth.
  16. Portion out batch meals in the freezer, like chill or soup. Store your full stashers horizontally to save space. Pro tip: Write the date on the bag with a ball-point pen or dry erase marker-- it wipes off with a damp cloth!
  17. Pop popcorn in the microwave.
  18. Make an omelette or scrambled eggs.
  19. Revive stale bread in the oven.
  20. Make chocolate bark! Melt some chocolate in your stasher in the microwave, then add nuts, seeds, adaptogens, berries, and then freeze flat.
  21. Take matcha and other adaptogens for a beverage on the go.
  22. Bring healthy snacks or candy to the movies.
  23. Replace your salad jars with salad bags.
  24. Keep your loose leaf tea fresh.
  25. Freeze cookies, muffins and pancakes to eat individually when you want them.
  26. Freeze leftover nut milk, yoghurt, smoothies, or herbs in olive oil in ice cube trays, and then store them in your Stasher for easy add-ins while cooking or blending!
  27. Infuse tea, liquor and other beverages.

    For Adventure

  28. Store all your zero-waste items in like your reusable straw, utensils and produce bags in your stasher and pop it in your tote, so you’re always prepared to refuse single-use plastics!
