50 uses for Jill and Joey Reusable Pouches

The beauty of reusable products--like our Jill and Joey reusable pouches--is that they not only can be used multiple times, they can also be used for multiple purposes.

After a simple rinse, a sandwich bag can become a pouch for storing extra screws and nails. Or, a makeup bag can become a place for keeping art supplies.

Below, we’ve compiled 50 popular uses for your Jill & Joey pouches based on what we’re hearing from customers.
