What milk storage bag do you use? I need something affordable!!

OK, I'm just cheap.  There's no getting around it.  And I'm looking for an inexpensive milk storage bag since I'm back to work and pumping more than my LO needs...

What do you use?

I started with these:  http://www.enasco.com/product/B01489WA  (about $0.10 per bag for the 4 ounce if you don't mind buying 500 at a time!)  These are awesome, but the 4 ounce size doesn't freeze "flat," so you'd need to go up to the 7 oz size if this is important to you.  I love the wire top--it makes it so easy to pour the milk out...

and I also like these:  http://www.choosehoneysuckle.com/category_s/1817.htm , but they're a bit more expensive.  They freeze flat.

 Like a Ziploc freezer bag?  I used the snack size for awhile...

I've heard of women freezing in trays then popping out and putting in ziploc freezer bags.  You're not supposed to directly freeze in them though - something about the plastic.  

I use Lansinoh bags - they're spendy but my recipient mama prefers them and pays for the bags so whatever she wants : )

 I froze in the one ounce trays before, but they all stuck together in the big ziploc baggie, and I didn't like putting my fingers directly on the milk to get it out...

I have used literally thousands of bags (donor milk recepient) and by far prefer NUK brand.  They are heavier plastic and don't leak like the Lansinoh, thaw evenly, and don't have the obnoxious hole that always made me spill!  I froze them flat as well

I use Lanoish. I wait for them to go on sale and buy between 150-200 bags at a time.
