Default Need small plastic storage bags

Up until now, I've stored my die cut sheets flat in a drawer, but they always get tangled when I search for an image I need. Tired of separating bird wings from lobster claws and flower stems, etc., I decided to pull the images apart and store them in plastic zip bags.

I can get sandwich-sized and larger resealable bags from my supermarket, but I'm looking for some smaller, say from 2" to around 4". I found a source online, but I don't need the quantities they sell. Do any of our vendors here sell them? Any other suggestions?

I find different size baggies in the craft jewelry section of my Wallymart. I've used small ones for sorting brads and other embellishments and yes, after two years I had to buy a second bunch!

Both Michael's and JoAnn's should sell them near their jewelry/beading sections. That's where I found mine.

I store my die cuts in CD cases like my cling mounted stamps. I put a strip of magnetic tape on the back side and they stay attached pretty well to that. At least they stay in the box.

This works for me. I think we all look for what works best for us.

this should have read my dies. The die cuts wouldn't attach to the magnet.
you probably figured that out anyway.

Thank you for your suggestions, everyone. I have a couple of local stores I'm going to try first, but if I'm not successful, I'm going to go to my husband's favorite online hardware store, McMaster-Carr. They have every size of press-to-close bags:

Ok this is going way back but I have used baby bottle liners for baggies. You may remember the playtex bottle liners? I even rubbed off the marking using rubbing alcohol and filled the bags with candies for seasonal treat gifts...Got alot of bags for fairly reasonable and they were sterile so filling candies into them was food safe! They can be heat sealed using a seal a meal even!
Off or store brands even more reasonable!
