I do things similar to Rebecca's suggestion. I like to mix and match, and don't want to be stuck with whatever's in the bag. If I was doing something up for my lazy husband to (maybe :D) make for himself, I might combine required ingredients in jars.
Is there a huge benefit to mylar I don't know about that negates the waste of it?

Couldn't someone buy some of those bags (or use the ones they bought freeze dried/dehydrated/etc) food in, and just wash them and reuse them?
