Where can I buy ziploc style bags for game components?

I'm looking for about the size that usually come with Plaid Hat Games' games.

If I can get them locally, that's even better, like Target or CVS or something.

Check out those cheap dollar stores.
They have plenty in there craft section.
In Australia i picked up 100 for like $2 ($1.20 USD - approx)
They usually have a wide variety of sizes also.

You can usually get large quantities of appropriately sized bags at Staples or Office Depot or whatever, typically located with their shipping supplies. I would personally recommend ordering a huge bag of them from amazon.

Like so: 4" x 5", 2 Mil Clear Zip to lock Bags, 5 DispenserBag Packs of 100 https://www.amazon.com/dp/B003ZZUKCA/ref=cm_sw_r_awd_-rTowbS...

Check Walmart craft supplies, they have various sizes of plastic sealable bags in quantity.

Much like Mark up there I also recently bought some bags..

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B004XTRR8M?psc=1&redirect=t...

They are 4"x6" and 4 Mil thick and I didn't notice at the time it was 1000 but I guess I'm set.. forever?

It was cheaper than buying 100 bags at the time!

I have enough to individually bag each cube in dozens of games!

Dude, save yourself the hassle.

You want to go to Michael's.
They'll have a wing display probably (hanging off the side of an end cap), and it'll be filled with numerous sizes.

You can go and get 1 of just about everything useful, use an online coupon from your smart phone (or print one off at home before you go), and probably make it outta there for around $10.


Blammo.

Ask a friend who buys Eclipse mints to keep his tins. Perfect flip tops for game components.

FWIW Michael's usually has coupons online, if you check first you might be able to save a little.

EDIT: Turns out I didn't read the post above...basically at all. What I meant was "+1" whistle

+! craft stores.

I usually hit up Michael's or Jo-Ann's for the 3x5 bags that you can get a box of 300 for $12-15.

While accompanying my daughter for craft supplies, I happen to run across some similar bags at Hobby Lobby. Ended up buying 150 counts of both 3x4 and 4x6 for less than $8 in total (after tax, no coupons).

I work in pathology and the blood samples come in 'baggies'. We throw away probably 2-3 thousand a day and most are clean because they samples don't leak. I just take handfuls from the paper/plastic bin.

Feels weird to me that you can pay 1p a bag.

Feels weird to me that your game baggies once held HUMAN BLOOD.

Michael's does have all sorts of craft items, a bead store will also work. If you are lazy Ike me you can spend 20 on amazon and never need bags again.
