Default how to get an anti static bag?

Can you use any plastic bag for an anti static bag? Or does it need special properties? Can you buy them at Fry's?

What Law said. Usually it should come with a motherboard or other hardwares.

I'm planning to store stuff (memory stick, hard drive). I have old anti static bag but am leery of using packing stuff.

Old static bags can be used, just clean dust off them. You can use regular plastic bag for stuff like CD/DVD drives, Floppy drives. Anything that doesn't have much electronic component exposed. You wouldn't want to store your CPU, RAM, even though it's safe as long as you discharge yourself before touching them.

Or you can leave all your things in an enclosed cardboard box.
