Also, we like to use these Reusable Mesh Produce Bags 6 pk Set
or similar (we buy ours for about 4$ for 3 from the local market) for foraging. Berries usually go in zip-locks due to squishing/leaking/staining concerns, but the mesh bags are great for just about everything else.
Also, one can make a fairly decent "food dehydrator" by putting goodies in these bags and hanging them *behind* fans (so the fan sucks air through them). If one has fans running a lot anyways (we do because we live in a stuffy apartment), then most goods will be >90% dehydrated in about a week with no extra energy usage. For any type of long term storage, I'll throw most thing in a normal dehydrator for an hour or so to finish them off. None of our grown herbs have needed any further drying. Since they are dried at ambient temps, the herbs retain a lot more of their flavors.
:EDIT: Attached picture of some assorted hot peppers drying on our fan. They've been there about 2.5 weeks now, but 1/2 way through we had some really humid weather which set them back a bit. They are just now about ready for a touch of commercial dehydrator and grinding.
