    Default very small ziplocks

    Where can I some very small ziplocks? Smaller than the snack bags at the grocery. I'm thinking about 2"x3", stuff like bandaides, pills, book matches, organizing small stuff.

    You can find what you are looking for in an arts and craft store. Walmart has a selection but they are a little thin.

    Joann's Fabrics has them, in the section that has beads, etc. Like mentioned they are thin, but work fine for carrying things short term.

    Grocery store, in the Pharmacy section, little ziplocks for pills. We buy them all the time there. I can store about two-weeks worth of one-a-day vitamins and Ibuprofen in one little ziplock.

    Also a great site for super small dropper and spray bottles (took a couple ounces off my pack weight: I use them for soap, salt/pepper, bugspray, sunscreen, hand sanitizer, eye drops, neosporin, etc.),

    Local drug dealer.........I mean, retail pharmaceutical entrepreneur should be able to supply.......... I mean have some or tell you where you can find them.

    Watch it, though. May lead to a life long addiction to hiking.

    I bought "pill bags" on Amazon that were about 2" X4" with a zipper top. They were very handy for carrying my vitamins and Advil, instead of carrying the plastic bottles those pills come in. They were fairly sturdy too.

    I used hundreds from Walmart for my thru hike. Plenty strong enough to hold my magical Malto mix. Not a single break.

    I just take a regular Hefty quart bag and cut off the ziplock and cut the bag with scissors to a smaller size and put in items and fold and keep tight with a small rubber band. I do this for my cell phone, my extra MSR fuel pump, my Thermarest repair kits, my small first aid kit.

    Walmart in the pharmacy section or the dollar store - they actually have a pack that has 3 different sizes - at least at the one near me does.

    Magic Malto Mix. Sound intriguing. Care to share?

    Pharmacies typically have these in a variety of sizes for certain meds. Depending on how many you need and how good your local "connection" is you might get them for free with just a simple polite request.

    I bought mine @ the Container Store. High quality & not paper-thin.
