Ziploc Bags and Containers Giveaway

When it comes to managing a busy home and family life, it’s important to maximize your resources, such as time and money.  Ziploc Brand bags and containers provide smart, quality solutions that help moms get more out of the things they do every day for their families- from preparing meals to storing food in the freezer and keeping the household organized.

Ziploc celebrates the magnificent moments of moms – those moments of expertise and brilliant ideas that keep households running smoothly, by offering moms food and home storage solutions.

SC Johnson sent me a couple of their products to use in my home.  One of them was a product that I actually use all the time, the other was new to me.

The first one is the Ziploc Brand Freezer Bags with the Smart Zip Seal. 

This is a product that’s a staple in my home.  These bags are effective at holding freezer burn at bay, when wanting to store food in the freezer for a number of weeks.

Once a month we go to Sam’s and stock up in bulk on meat and croissants.  We bag the amount for a meal in a gallon Ziploc Freezer Bag and then pop them in the freezer.  So far we have never been disappointed with the outcome when our food is thawed, it’s always as fresh as when we purchased it, and we are very happy using them.

The second product I received were the Ziploc Brand Twist ‘n Loc Containers.  I have never used these before.  I put them to the test with some juice we had in the fridge.

Yes, I admit, I held it over the sink…just in case.  But there was no need to, that grape juice stayed in the container with no leaks or drips!  I’m sold!  These are perfect for leftover soups and stews, as they hold 2 cups.  Or to make individual servings of items to freeze for a later date!

To celebrate the resourceful, hard working moms that give back to their community (it might be you!) and are mindful of the environment, Ziploc Brand and TerraCycle, the manufacturers of eco-friendly products from waste materials, are searching nationwide for that special “Make-A-Difference-Mom.” We’d like your help in discovering the mom who outsmarts waste in everything she does. Perhaps one of your readers knows someone that fits the profile exactly? Or perhaps you are the “Make-A-Difference-Mom?”

Starting today and through December 15, families can nominate their moms in the “Make-A-Difference Mom” Contest at by explaining – in 250 words or less – what small steps their mom is taking to make a difference for tomorrow and why their mom deserves to win the contest. Four “Make-A-Difference Mom” finalists will be featured on, but only one will win the Grand Prize!

The grand prize winner will receive the official title of “Make-A-Difference Mom,” a Ziploc and TerraCycle Prize Pack, $1,500 to reward herself or her community and a video camera to document her family making a difference!
