Default Anit-Static Bags

I was just wondering what you guys do with your left over hardware, I'm currently just using little zip tie bags.But, doubting how well they "protect" my stuff. Do you know where i can get some anti-static bags for all my stuff ?

I'd check your local computer shops. The one I do some business with doesn't sell them, but will give me a couple if they have them laying around.

Too bad I still didn't have stockpiles of antistatic bags. I think I had 500 or 2000 of them.

I certainly wouldn't recommend using standard zip lock bags. I meanthe chances that you'll destroy a component in them is probably very, very, low... But, still.

You can buy anti-static bags online.
I've bought them here:
